Running for State Rep with Kim McCarthy - Episode 30

This week Carrie and Sky are joined by Kim McCarthy who is running for Ohio State Representative for District 73.About our Guest:It was after the 2016 election, when Kim saw the local county electoral ballot devoid of any meaningful choices, what with many of the elected seats going uncontested, that she began to focus more attention to things closer to home. Kim started attending the county commission meetings, and by using her accounting background to examine the state budget, began to understand the full scope of influence the state has over the actual material conditions experienced at the county and city levels. She also discovered that the current State Representative was not meaningfully advocating for the needs of the county he was supposedly representing in the Statehouse, and that many of the local officials were feeling very frustrated over that. She decided that Greene County deserved better, and vowed then to fight for better representation for the people who lived there.Kim is an accountant, and has been a long time business owner and entrepreneur. She is the proud mother of three children, and lives with them and their dog Boomer and cat Flipper, along with a hen house full of chickens and ducks, on Boomerang Farm in Sugarcreek Twp. Kim immigrated to Ohio from Brisbane, Australia back in 1994 and believes that Americans deserve the same basic quality of human rights and dignity that she grew up with there decades ago. She believes in a society that is based on justice, respect and empathy for one another, and for the environment in which we live and depend upon.Find out more about Kim McCarthy at www.kimmccarthyoh.comWant more?

As a former board member of the Health Care Service Corporation, the largest customer-owned health insurer in the country, Juanita knows how important it is to provide women and families with access to affordable, quality health care. Rep. Brent has a proven record that shows her dedication to the issues that matter most to her district. When re-elected, Juanita will continue to serve the needs of district 12 and to give a voice to those who need it most.Follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @Juanita_BrentThis is a Girl’s Girls Media Production.Want more?
