Now that the dust has settled from the Aug. 4 primary and the U.S. 10th District Congressional race, I’m catching my breath while strategizing my next steps for the general election slated for Nov. 3.

I am very excited and honored to be the Democratic nominee going into the General Election. Of course, I couldn’t have done this without a lot of help.

I really need to thank all of the brave volunteers who worked to make this happen during this pandemic. From phone calling to mailing postcards, and delivering door-hangers, they were there every step of the way.

In the end, I couldn’t have done it without the support of the voters, so I say thank you from the very bottom of my heart for having the faith in casting your vote for me.

I want to thank Kelly Noland, my primary election opponent, for her dedication to the Democratic Party and its mission. She is an honorable candidate and ran her campaigns as such.

The pandemic has raised some interesting situations for this year’s campaign. By this time in 2018 when I running against incumbent Rep. Paul Mitchell, I and my team had walked in parades throughout the entire 10th District, knocked on doors, attended festivals, and passed out seed packets.

While the pandemic continues to place restrictions on our gathering abilities, I’m confident that my supporters will come together with me in helping to flip this seat Blue.

In the meantime, I am strategizing with my core team on how to get my message out while keeping constituents safe during COVID-19. Upcoming events and volunteer opportunities will be listed on my Facebook page, Kimberly Bizon for Congress.

I’ve been a veteran environmental activist in Michigan’s 10th District. I currently work as a senior web designer and art director, but grew up on a small farm in Yale where I was instilled with the values that led to my lifelong commitment to keep everyone safe from unnecessary contaminants in our food, air and water.

I continue to be an advocate for senior citizens, teachers and students, veterans, and workers. My platform includes the fight for more affordable health care, better public education, and sustainable living in a way that brings people in the community together.

I’m also an advocate for a new spirit of bipartisan cooperation in our nation’s capital. When I’m sent to Congress, I want to work with people across the aisle as well as the state and local levels. We’re desperately missing that today.
