Lori Kilpatrick grew up in a small rural southern farming community. She joined the army right out of high school where she met her husband. While traveling base to base she started a family as an Army wife and achieved a degree in education.
Her husband's family had settled in Douglas, Arizona and Lori's family retired from the service and settled in the area. As a small business owner, Lori decided to run for AZ state Senate. Even though she lost, she realized that her commitment to making a difference and changing what she saw as corruption within the establishment would not keep her from trying again.
Running for County Supervisor of Cochise County, AZ she once again encountered the difficulties of running against an incumbent. We are honored to have her on our show tonight as we discuss the perils and pitfalls and the accomplishments of running for public office.
