DavisHeadshotWashington, Iowa — Kimberly Davis, fourth generation Iowan, community volunteer, and realtor, from Washington, announced her candidacy to represent Iowa House District 78, which includes Keokuk and Washington counties.

“I believe this election is all about the people of District 78 getting a chance to be heard and truly knowing that their thoughts and concerns are being considered when their representative makes decisions in Des Moines. Right now, our district is in the dark about what’s happening at the State Legislature in Des Moines because we don’t have leadership that takes the time to communicate with the district’s constituents. That’s why I am running for the Iowa Legislature, to be an advocate for the folks of Keokuk and Washington counties by having a two-sided dialogue that continues long past Election Day. I want to work for you.”

“My top priorities to give Iowa the brighter and healthier future that I grew up counting on are to create jobs and stimulate the economy, protect and expand health care and educational facilities, and to support the agricultural sector in their efforts to preserve natural resources for generations to come. I plan to make these positive changes by seeking the input of the people of House District 78 and learning from the innovations of communities surrounding our own.”

“District 78 is a wonderful place to call home, I am running to represent this community because I value the personal stories of the wonderful people who live here and want to take the time to bring their compelling narratives to Des Moines to make Iowa better and brighter for all of us.”

Davis grew up in rural Johnson county as the daughter of small business owners with a family that takes pride in being energetic, entrepreneurial Iowans with strong Midwestern work ethic. She attended Kirkwood Community College and Portland State University and became a licensed realtor.

Davis is married and she and her husband are close with the many friends and the family they have in Eastern Iowa. Kimberly is a dedicated volunteer and activist in her community and is involved in the Pool League of Wapello County, Organizing for Action, Indivisible and the Washington County Democrats.
