Haase Aims to Reflect Acworth in Bid for Post 2
ACWORTH, GA –– Kimberly Haase, an 18-year resident of Acworth, is running for Post 2 on the city’s Board of Aldermen. Election Day will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023.
The Vote 4 Kimberly Haase campaign committee and Acworth residents came together to host a community meet and greet at the historic Acworth Rosenwald school on Sunday, September 17 for the broader Acworth community to meet Haase and her campaign team, and to learn more about her vision for Acworth.
With this in mind, Haase’s issue platform builds on her 2021 ideas to incorporate social, educational, economic, mental, emotional, environmental, and intergenerational approaches to fostering equitable opportunities in Acworth. Specific issues of focus include Empowerment and Equity, Stormwater Management and infrastructure, Controlled Growth, Supporting Local and Small Businesses, and Connecting Community.
In a promotional video for her campaign, Haase stated her goal “is to reintroduce the purpose of a city council member: the purpose of being voted into office is to sit down and listen to different ideas that come across and represent, in my voting, what my constituents had voted for me to vote for wanting to have a voice.”
Haase – CEO of iLoveKare, a concierge service company for active aging adults founded in 2013 – has been a resident of Georgia for 25 years. She is a Political Science graduate of Kennesaw State University, a distinguished member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, and the Class of 2016 Who’s Who of Students.
Cobb County Commissioner Chair Lisa Cupid recognized Haase at the 2023 State of the County Address as a recipient of the All In Cobb County Innovator Award for her work within the senior community in Cobb County. Additionally, she has served on the Senior Citizen Council of Cobb County, and is currently a member of the National Concierge Association (NCA) and the Acworth Business Association (ABA) and has served on Acworth’s Juneteenth committee in 2022 and 2023. She is also involved with the Acworth Cultural Arts (ACA) Center and other local community organizations.
This is Haase’s second campaign for the Board of Aldermen after last running in 2021, earning 46 percent of votes. “I want to thank the 730+ Acworth voters who supported me in 2021! We had a great run – we did magnificent,” said Haase after qualifying for the 2023 election on August 21.
“We're going to have a shared win, meaning we're going to all come in and do our best to bring in the ideas of the community and what we want local government to look like. I believe I'm the candidate that can bring everyone together to move forward in this election.”
We encourage community members to see if they are within incorporated Acworth and able to vote on Tuesday, November 7. The deadline to register to vote and/or update your voter registration is Tuesday, October 10, 2023; and early voting begins Monday, October 16 at the Roberts School & Community Education Center (4681 School St. Acworth, Georgia 30101).
