The People's Voice is pleased to announce our endorsement of Katie Fry Hester for State Senate in District 9. Katie Fry Hester has lived in Howard County for 16 years with her husband and two daughters. She has a degree from Cornell University in Agricultural and Biological Engineering, a top ten program in the U.S., where she learned the practical skills needed to solve real-world problems.
During her 20-year professional career, she was a mediator and problem solver. She worked to develop local agricultural markets, helped government agencies create jobs, advised companies, and trained hundreds of people in partnership building. She has worked with governments, Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, communities, non-profits, and international agencies around the world to implement strategies that are good for business, good for the environment, and good for communities.
Katie is running as a centrist and citizen legislator. She knows that when we connect with each other on common values, incredible things can happen. Collaboration drives innovative problem solving and brings progress that is more broadly accepted.
She is active in many local community groups including Mobilize HoCo Schools, Indivisible Howard County MD, Together we Will, Do the Most Good and the Ellicott City and Western Howard County Democratic Club. She is a Maryland First Responder and volunteer for Wisp Ski Patrol, and member of Glenmar Church. For more information, visit www.katiefryhester.com
