Winchester City Council
Hi, my name is Kim Herbstritt and I’m running for City Council, Third Ward.
Winchester is a place that holds special memories for me as a young adult, spending time with friends enjoying the serenity of small town life. I left the area for several years to have new life and work experiences, but my family and the beauty of this city called me home.
Throughout my career, I’ve been a strong proponent of working with local communities to solve local problems. I’ve made it a priority to find solutions to challenging issues, while remaining focused on strategies that serve ALL residents. My experience in the nonprofit sector, combined with the highs and lows of being a small business owner, make me especially aware of and focused on how Winchester can affect positive change for its citizens on a limited budget.
Winchester is a special place for those who call it home. Our future will be brighter when we build bridges so that all thrive together.
I am committed to listening and working hard for positive change for the Third Ward and the City of Winchester.
Together we can make a difference.
Days until election
When you have a question, problem or a concern, I’ll be available to hear it. If it’s an
issue with the city, I’ll try to resolve it. I’ll develop resources to refer you to if it’s a regional, state or federal government issue. I will also look out for you if I see a city or private sector action occurring that will negatively affect our ward. Acting proactively, sometimes a problem can be avoided before it occurs. Finally, I’ll keep in touch. I’ll do regular town halls for our ward to hear what’s concerning you, to answer questions or just keep you up with what’s going on. I’ll also keep my web site and Facebook page to provide you with current information, a calendar of events, etc. Transparency will be important in everything I do as your councilor. An informed citizen is an involved citizen.
Coming from the non-profit sector, I always had to get big results with few dollars. I’m just the same as a new small business owner. I know budgets, book keeping; have made payrolls and how to read spreadsheets. People sometimes say I’m a penny pincher but isn’t that who you’d like managing your tax dollars?
But we exist within the boundaries of a larger county, a growing region and dynamic state. I will keep current and aware of opportunities available for joint projects like the Regional Drug Task Force, the Metropolitan Planning Council, etc. As in my non-profit and business work, I’ll network with others and find helpful resources within Winchester and outside it to benefit our citizens.
