Representative Kathleen Williams is a second term Democrat using 25 years of experience working for the forest service and state government, and a Masters Degree in Recreational Resources, to fight at the Montana Capitol for policies that contribute to a healthy economy and protect the Montana we love.
With experiences in natural resources, economics, government, non-profit management, community planning, and running a small business, Rep. Williams has built the skills necessary to lead Montana with honor and dignity. She is a proven problem solver, and is ready to negotiate for informed and responsible solutions to Montana’s problems. She talks about the importance of working together in an interview with the Bozeman Daily Chronicle:
“I believe the most successful way to increase the integrity and function of the Legislature is to put policy above partisanship, treat all participants as colleagues, focus on the issues most relevant to the state, be informed, work to find solutions and help others do so, and lead by example.”
Rep. Williams is dedicated to addressing the concerns and needs of the Montanans she represents, and takes the time to listen to their needs. She is very accessible, and encourages her constituents to share their ideas and opinions, so that she can most accurately represent them.
Shaping her legislative priorities around the concerns of her district as she hears from them, Rep. Williams is working for a healthy sense of community, a strong and diverse economy, a quality and accessible public education system, affordable and quality healthcare, a balanced budget, and clean air and water and access to rivers and streams.
After working hard to build relationships within the legislature and around the state, Rep. Williams is serving Montanans with commonsense and efficiency. Valuing hard work and collaboration over party politics and out-of-state interests, she puts the people first in everything she does, and makes sure that everyone gets a seat at the table when decisions are made for Montana.
