Katherine Webb Cyphert's positions and views on the issues:
Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
Katie is running for Delegate because she got frustrated when she called our current state legislator and received no response. She believes we need a Delegate who will listen and respond to us and represent our needs. That's why she'll hold regular town hall meetings and publish her telephone number so she can easily be reached - to get our input on education, small businesses and jobs, and making sure we get our fair share of tax dollars back from the state.
Personal: (gender, age, marital status, spouse's name and age, children's name and ages, home town, current residence)
Katie was born in 1980 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where her father was stationed during his medical residency. Katie and Mark Cyphert, a maintenance mechanic at Lynchburg College, have been married for eight years. Their daughters are 7 and 3.
Education: (times and places of schools, colleges, major, degrees, activities, sports)
In 2002 she graduated from Lynchburg College with a BS in psychology/special education.
Profession: (profession and work experience outside politics)
Katie went to work at fourteen, first as a babysitter and camp counselor and during college as a dishwasher, server, and manager in several local restaurants. In 2002 she began her teaching career at E.C. Glass High School. At first she taught students with multiple disabilities; later, she focused on learning disabilities. Her special education training took her into many different classrooms.

After six years at Glass, Katie was recruited by Horace Mann, an educator-oriented insurance company. Studying on her own, she quickly gained multiple certifications and began selling automobile, homeowners, and life insurance policies. “I’ve sat down with widows to fill out death claim paperwork and helped people decide whether they can afford to retire,” she says. She continues to use her expertise in retirement planning as a licensed producer for the local Horace Mann agent. In 2013 she took on a second job, returning to the classroom to teach earth science to eighth-graders at Linkhorne Middle School.

Military: (branch, years of service, active duty experience, highest rank, medals, honors, discharge date and type)
no response
Civic: (past and present organizations, charities involvement)
Katie’s commitment to education is evident in her volunteer work. Past president of the Lynchburg Education Association and current chair of marketing and public relations for the Linkhorne Elementary School PTO, she has also served on the boards of Friends of Rivermont and Young Professionals of Central Virginia and has volunteered for Read Across America Day and many other community projects. She participated in the Community Dialogue on Race and Racism and, in 2007, attended Lynchburg’s Citizens Academy. The following year she volunteered in the City Registrar’s Office.

In Katie’s view, the responsibilities of citizenship include energetic and sometimes outspoken political activity. Her first experience as a political volunteer was in Republican Delegate Preston Bryant's primary campaign in 2005. Since then she has volunteered for Independent candidates in two City Council races. “I've showed up at School Board or City Council when I felt something needed to be said," she says.
Political: (dates and titles of previously held political offices)
no response
