Kim Abel (D): State Representative #1, District 26
Ms. Abel is running for this House Seat being vacated by the highly regarded green legislator, Rep. Pat Lantz. Ms. Abel is an environmental champion in the works. As a lawyer with experience in environmental law, she has the necessary values and depth of knowledge on all major environmental issues.
