Biography of Angela Kay Zimmann from Angela Zimmann for Congress
“I’m not a politician. I’m a mom, a wife, a teacher, a pastor and a school board member, and I come from a long line of servants. My grandparents and great-grandparents lived here in Holland, Ohio – they owned a small farm. They served their neighbors with homegrown vegetables – the best sweetcorn in the land. Today my kids are the fifth generation to live here. We’re teaching them how to garden, raise chickens and goats, and appreciate the harvest.
I’m proud to say my dad was a public servant: Jack Wallington, who served in the United States Navy and was a public school teacher for 30 years. In the tradition of my family, I’m not a politician – I’m a servant of the people. This campaign isn’t going to wait until election day to start serving this district– we start serving today. Service cuts across all differences and unites us in our humanity. When I look over the statistics regarding our district, I see people from every walk of life– from every part of my life and we share one thing in common– we are all people who serve others. And those who benefit from our service – they don’t care about our differences – they care about our compassion and our ability to meet their very real needs.
I’m a fiscal conservative. I don’t believe in spending money I don’t have. I have always lived this way, and it means I’ve driven older cars, worked two or three jobs at a time, and shopped at the Goodwill. I’m a fiscal conservative, and this is the truth: Don’t let politicians and pundits tell you that our country is “broke.” We have plenty of money for big oil and banks, but not for our public schools, not for our poor, not for our sick, not for our foster kids. Something is very wrong. Help me fix it, please. Support me in my bid for Congress in Ohio’s District 5.”
