(Jan. 7) – Cathy Kipp, a former Poudre School District board member, was sworn in today at the state capitol as the next representative for House District 52 in Fort Collins. A vacancy committee selected Rep. Kipp last week to replace state Senator Joann Ginal in the House.
“I’m honored the group in HD-52 selected me and look forward to hitting the ground running,” Rep. Kipp, D-Fort Collins said. “I am looking forward to working with my colleagues at the legislature to invest in education and address the threat of climate change, among other issues.”
“Representative Kipp brings a deep knowledge of policy and grassroots experience to the capitol and we all look forward to working with her to craft bipartisan solutions to the problems facing Coloradans,” said Speaker KC Becker, D-Boulder.
For the past seven years she sat on the Poudre School District Board of Education. Rep. Kipp is well-known in Colorado for her public education advocacy efforts.
“I look forward to working with all of you, I am a very boots on the ground kind of person,” Kipp told the House upon being sworn in.
Rep. Kipp lives in Fort Collins with her husband Don. They have two sons, Nick and Arthur.
