Kronda Thimesch embodies the American Dream. Her grandmother, Rose Martinez-Mascarenas, lived in a home with dirt floors and didn’t finish high school. Kronda went on to graduate from college, built a small business, and served on our local school board. Kronda Thimesch will fight for lower property taxes, excellent schools, safe neighborhoods and a secure border. A servant leader, Kronda Thimesch will be an effective advocate for HD 65 on day one.

Once elected, my accomplishments will be ensuring that women have the right to choose, prioritizing education, expanding Medicaid, and lowering property taxes. I will focus on building partnerships across both party lines to ensure that bills are passed that reflects the voices of our constituents.
