The Colorado House of Representatives, has seven seats up for election in 2016. Kim Ranson is one of the candidates running for one of the seats. Campaigning for her election was priority, and this past September she visited Chaparral High school to be interviewed by senior Kyle Potts. A mass of the interview covered funding in private, and public schools. Potts asked Ranson how to keep public schools “up to speed”, funded, and well educated when competing against private schools. Ranson replied saying, “ the public schools are in good shape… back to what I said earlier about municipalities, it's also not my role as a state legislator to tell the school district how they should be determining what they want to do.” Ranson later elaborated on how she supports the parents right to send their child to the school of their choosing, “I am actually in favor of parental choice, where they feel is best suited for that child.”. Ranson was not of the candidates elected for the House of Representatives chair.
