Candidate for: Magisterial District Judge
Kim Williams is a candidate in the race for District Magisterial Judge (05-2-28). This area is home to a diverse range of residents spanning the Hill District, Uptown, Downtown, the Strip District and part of Oakland. The right candidate for the District Magisterial position will leave an indelible mark of positivity on the communities served while effectively applying state laws, statutes and penal codes to assigned cases.
Kim Williams is that candidate because her ability to thrive as a native Pittsburgh resident has resulted in familiarity with, and respect for, these laws. Kim is a homeowner in the Hill District, an elected Allegheny County Democratic Committee Woman, a union employee for Laborers Local #1058 (Heavy Highway Construction). She possesses a B.A., degree in Psychology as a graduate from Point Park University.
Kim has two children, (one son and one daughter.) She has three grandchildren and one on the way. Her involvement with the community is integral to her life at every level, from engaging in panel discussions and attending meetings discussing area issues within her union, to the creation of a community program through her own landscaping business and will be volunteering to cut and/or maintain some of the empty yards throughout the Hill District. (in the near future).
Kim’s campaign, “A Rise to Change With a Solution,” believes that the disparities and gaps in the system have a significant impact those in the Community whose income is below the poverty guidelines which can cause a severe domino effect on their life.
One such gap is the cash bail and bond system that ultimately leaves lower-income residents vulnerable to circumstances that higher income residents can more easily maneuver. Kim Williams hopes to be able to support about this issue, and others like it, in an effort to ensure equitable opportunity for the entire Communities included in these Districts.

In addition, Kim currently holds a political position as the Allegheny County Democratic Committeewoman for the 5th Ward in Hill District.
