Around the County - October 2018

Champaign County voters deserve more than an economic cheerleader. Honed over two decades of work in Champaign County, my proven ability to galvanize resources and strengthen public-private partnerships will allow me to get things done. I spent the month of October sharing these experiences with voters!

Around the County - August 2018

As County Executive, I will bring not just any experience but the right kind of hands-on administrative experience to successfully manage the County's complex budget, staff, and service needs. This past month, I've spent time meeting and speaking with constituents from all over the County because I believe that the Executive ought to consider everyone's voice, not just a select few with whom she already agrees.

Around the County - July 2018

July was a season of celebrating community by participating in local events, giving back through blood drives, and partnering with my fellow Democratic candidates.

Around the County - June 2018

June overflowed with activity as my team and I canvassed significant portions of the County. We installed yard signs, conversed with voters, and proved through actions (not simply words) that because the County Executive represents the entire County - regardless of the size, socioeconomic status, or racial composition of an area's community members - she ought to be readily available to hear the voices of all of her constituency. Every. Single. One.

Around the County - May 2018

As our campaign team worked to take advantage of the longer days and warmer weather to spend time canvassing, the evenings in May quickly filled up with activity!

Around the County - April 2018

Just as spring is a season for planting and anticipating new growth so the campaign has redoubled our "planting" efforts through increased time spent canvassing while also anticipating growth over the summer as we plan several outreach and fundraising events.

Around the County - March 2018

Our theme for March has been "Dream Big" as we held 9 "Conversations with Kloeppel" town hall meetings around the County. In between these meetings, I spent a significant amount of time encouraging folks to register to vote and then go actually vote in the primary. I also canvassed door-to-door with other candidates, participated in a student voting event on the Quad, and attended the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Alumnae's event for candidates to learn more about concerns of the black community in the County from black leaders in justice, education, health care, business, and civic leadership while also maintaining a presence at the County Board meetings, including the Transition Committee which meets to discuss how the Board plans to work with the new County Executive.

Around the County - Feb 2018

What an exciting and busy month! I kicked off my series of 12 Town Hall meetings entitled "Conversations with Kloeppel" in my hometown of Urbana on February 2nd. In addition to canvassing in area communities, I'm continuing to network with other agencies and elected officials via various forums!

Around the County - Jan 2018

The new year launched a busy month for the campaign as we scheduled a full slate of "Conversations with Kloeppel" town hall meetings around the County, expanded our campaign team (Welcome, Mahomet Democrats!), and attended a broad range of community meetings ranging from the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration to the Champaign Forum on Gun Violence.

What a privilege to have spent the month of November meeting with many strong Democrats in the smaller towns of Champaign County, as well as engaging with enthusiastic supporters in Urbana, Champaign and the University precincts. Thank you to all of my supporters throughout the County!

Around the County - Oct 2017

The beautiful fall days made traveling around Champaign County a pleasure as I met with County residents going door-to-door and at many of the wonderful events held in Champaign County this month. Voters continue to express enthusiastic support for my campaign as I collect signatures. Many residents seem encouraged by the presence of several first-time and women candidates running for various elected positions (including my campaign for County Executive!).

August 13, 2017 - Women in Politics Forum

I enjoyed the "Women in Politics" Forum hosted by the Young Dems at the Champaign Public Library on August 13th. Great stories and advice were given by the four presenters: Carol Ammons, Julia Rietz, Naomi Jakobsson and Patricia Avery! The audience also asked great questions about the increasing influence of digital media and work/personal life balance that stimulated discussion. The event was an encouragement as I begin my campaign for Champaign County Executive.
