Website: Bio:

Kim was born in Puerto Rico and raised in a military family that lived in many locations throughout the world.  In 1971, Kim’s family moved to Pima County when her father was stationed at Davis Monthan Air Force Base.  Kim has lived in California and Texas but has always called Tucson and Pima County her home.  She has been a resident of Pima County for 37 years and has proudly served the citizens of this state as a police officer.  Kim has volunteered thousands of hours to Pima Counties youth athletic programs and law enforcement youth explorers programs.  Kim has been married to a native Tucsonan for 13 years.  She has 2 step children and 4 step grandchildren.  Kim’s roots are deep in Pima County and she plans on retiring in the place she calls home.

  Kim is ready to use her no nonsense, straight forward approach to tackle the tough issues and address the mismanaged budget and failing economic environment in Pima County.   As a police officer and Marine, Kim was tasked with making decisions that demanded a successful and positive outcome.  She understands that public servants must answer to the people they serve and will seek accountability in Pima County government.  The Pima County Board of Supervisors failure to improve the economic situation and their irresponsible spending have cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars.  Kim’s experience in managing personnel and large scale operations to include project management and cost analysis budgeting gives her the knowledge to put Pima County in a position of economic strength. Kim is an attention to detail person that believes there is no substitute for common sense.  Her determination and drive have shown her to be a successful business owner and mortgage lender.

 Kim was raised in a family that believed you could do and become anything that you wanted.  She believes that you must put the power of the family unit back into politics and encourage growth and success thru opportunity. She believes in small government and free enterprise.  Kim is active in local politics as a Republican Precinct Committeeman, several political organizations and is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the Green Valley/Sahuarita Chamber of Commerce.

Carolyn’s note:  Political newcomer DeMarco will be facing Democrat incumbent Sharon Bronson, who has served as Pima County Supervisor since 1997.  All Supervisors are up for re-election in Nov. 2016. More on Bronson:
