A leader with vision

Since 2008, Kathi has worked tirelessly to fulfill her vision for New Hope as a place where families want to live, residents can find good jobs, children learn and play in safety, neighbors are connected and seniors are well cared for. 

She's accomplishing this by:


  • Attracting new businesses, supporting existing ones, and encouraging all businesses to hire New Hope residents.


  • Continuing to upgrade our housing stock, apartment buildings, parks, recreational facilities and other amenities.


  • Actively supporting police, fire and other first responders to keep our residents safe and healthy.

  • Working with principals, school staff, students and parents to strengthen our schools.

  • Putting people first. Visiting our senior care centers, being accessible to all New Hope residents and supporting our dedicated city staff.


  • Continuing to build strong relationships with the mayors of neighboring cities, because New Hope partners with other communities to provide services.

  • Last but never least, being fiscally responsible with taxpayers’ money.
