Kim Smith Announces Her Campaign for New York State Senate District 61 Begins Listening Tour to Hear Directly from Voters

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 23, 2019

kim smith (Rochester, NY) Kim Smith, a third-generation Rochester resident, has announced her campaign for New York State’s 61st Senate District. Kim holds a Master’s of Public Administration from Brockport College and spent more than 25 years with the Monroe County Department of Public Health (MCDPH). Her
innovative policy work to improve access to care gained local, state and national
attention.


“During my years at the Monroe County Department of Public Health, I worked to
create a thriving environment for the 750,000 residents of Monroe County, as
diverse in geography, people and needs as the 61st district,” Smith said. “That
kind of diversity is an opportunity to build bridges, capitalize on commonalities,
and negotiate and compromise to reach our common goals and improve lives
across the district. We must come together so that no voice, farmer, town, village
or city in this district goes unheard or unrepresented.”


In 2017, Smith transitioned from her role in local government to serving as an
activist and advocate with VOCAL-NY, where she became the organization’s first
Statewide Organizer focusing on Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse. She brings to
her campaign this unique combination of experience developing and administering policy at the local level, and advocacy in Albany where she has helped to win more equitable statewide legislation in key areas including housing affordability.
In the spirit of developing policy in collaboration with the community, Kim’s campaign will begin a series of listening sessions that will take place across the 61st district. These sessions are for community members to meet Kim and talk about the issues that matter most, all are welcome to attend.


The first Listening Session was held in Amherst on December 19th. Genesee County residents can attend the session in Batavia on January 7th, 2020 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Gallery Room at the Richmond Memorial Library, 19 Ross Street. The tour continues in Newstead at Akron, NY) January 13 6-8pm @ Newstead Public Library , 33 Main Street,
Rochester on January 14th from 5:30-7pm at the Arnett Library. Additional dates and locations are being scheduled and will be posted on her website.
