Ruth Briggs King


I’m so glad to work on your behalf to improve our community! I consider it an honor as well as duty to diligently champion our needs and seek improvements for your quality of life. It is a pleasure to represent you and to work with you to provide service, solutions, and leadership for the people of the 37th District.
