Kymberly Vollmers: ‘I am deeply committed to developing partnerships’

Kymberly Vollmers, Redding City Council candidate

Occupation: Educator
Age: 41

Candidate statement

“As your next Redding City Council Member, I will represent hardworking people who have made Redding their home. I grew up in Redding. I still love the beauty that surrounds us in parks, trails and the river.

I am a wife, mother of four daughters and a leader in the homeschooling community. As the needs for residence of Redding change, I want to see support for families to feel safe through providing every facet of law enforcement necessary. I believe people want to see mental health services be a collaborative priority.

Facebook candidate statement excerpt

I moved to Redding when I was 8 years old, and we were homeless. It taught me about hard work, accountability, and creativity. In 2013, I participated in Leadership Redding. That opportunity elevated my awareness for what best serves the community of Redding. I understand the needs of people here.

I am qualified and capable to represent you. I recognize the strength of Redding’s people is part of what makes us uniquely different from other cities.

We have a nationally competitive economy thru our constant economic development. As we create infrastructure, I am deeply committed to developing partnerships to pave a way for more affordable housing.”

Other details
  • A previous Shasta County District 1 Supervisor for the June Primary Election, she withdrew from the race, but not in time for her name to be removed from the June Primary ballot. She gave her endorsement to Erin Resner. She received 748 votes, 8.96 percent.
  • Regarding the Civic Auditorium/Redding Rodeo property: “I would like to see the area that serves us the best ways for the longest ways. I do not hold a strong opinion of whether it’s sold at this time or it’s kept in ownership with the city.”
  • Although she’s member of The Stirring Church – which has affiliations with Bethel Church (music, facilities, speakers) – On Oct. 9 Vollmers addressed on Facebook the recurring question about whether she’s a Bethel Church member.

    “For the record: I do not attend at Bethel, I am not a member of Bethel and I also am not a drone. ??Capeesh?! I believe in The United States Constitution, separation of church and state. This provides a way for all to be represented in terms of the law and those who govern. Please ask me any questions you might have. It’s okay if you’re a bit aggressive in your ask. But, it would be cool if no one calls anyone names.”
