She does the right thing. There is no other reason than that to vote for Kim Williams in the 19th District. But for those few and far between in Delaware who may not know Kim Williams, let me explain why I am endorsing her.
Kim Williams is the Vice Chair of the House Education Committee. She has served on that committee since she was first elected in 2012. In that time, she has dealt with charter school reform, opt out, charter school audit, teacher evaluation, special education, education funding, Smarter Balanced, the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission, bullying, and so much more. She votes with her conscience every single time. Not how others vote, or the popular vote, but how SHE wants to vote. And behind that vote is her love of children. Not just the children of her district. Not just the children in the Red Clay Consolidated School District. All the children of Delaware.
If there are issues going on at a school, she is there. She isn’t afraid to ask questions when it has to happen. If there is something big going on in education, she is there.
My favorite “Kim Williams” moment was when I was talking to a friend that lives in a school district 45 minutes south of me. Kim’s district is way up in Newcastle County. This friend told me how she was working with Kim on an issue. I was amazed that Kim would help someone who lives so far away. That’s just who she is.
But she is more than just an “education” state rep. She is the people’s representative. To me, she is the heart and soul of Delaware, at least what I would like it to be one day. I wrote a fake article last year called The Last Exceptional Delaware Post. In this imaginary future, Kim Williams was the Governor of Delaware in the year 2024. I’m not ruling that out!
In writing this article, I wanted to find a picture of Kim that represents who she is. It was very hard. As I looked through her pictures on Facebook, she is always surrounded by people. All the time. Whether it is her family, her friends, her constituents, her peers in the General Assembly, she is always with people!
