Rains County resident Catherine Krantz has big ideas for rural-area communities. Krantz is one of two Democratic candidates for U.S. Representative of the 4th Congressional District on the March primary ballot. “Just because we have less people out here doesn’t mean that we don’t need access to the high-quality services other people have,” she recently stated. “Small towns are facing a lot of real issues right now and so often it’s not talked about.”
Krantz is passionate about the Rains County community she lives in and about serving the whole 4th Congressional District, if she’s elected. She’s spent the majority of the last 200 days on the road visiting possible constituents, attending meet-and-greets and participating in debates and forums.
Frustrated with the U.S. Representative incumbent, Krantz decided to stake her own claim in the race. She explained that the job of a member of the U.S. Congress includes aiding constituents with Veteran Affairs issues, aiding them with other governmental issues and truly representing the needs of the people in their district while in Washington, D.C.
If elected, Krantz plans to continue visiting communities within the 4th Congressional District throughout her term to keep learning and understanding the needs of constituents.
