Canton Chamber on Business and Leadership
I’ve grown up and reside in Canton. This is where my family’s roots are, so I am familiar with Canton’s rich history and traditions. I attended Spoon River College and received my Bachelors of Science from Northland College in Ashland, Wis. My husband Cole, who works for the City of Canton, and I have an amazing two and a half year old daughter Ava, who keeps us busy. With almost one year under my belt as the Executive Director for the Canton Area Chamber of Commerce, we are continuing to partner with area businesses and community leaders to make Canton a great place to live, work and play!

It seems as though Ashley Judd's previously reported potential political career is no joke. The Missing star is "seriously exploring" a 2014 run for Senate in Kentucky, Politico reports.According to the website, Judd has already met with Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, talked to a Democratic pollster and started opposition research in preparation for the potential race.Remember when Justin Timberlake had curls? Check out the most dramatic celebrity makeovers"She is doing all the things that a serious candidate exploring a race should do," Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) said after speaking with Judd. "I think there are a lot of people, and I was one of them, who wanted to let her know that her candidacy would be an exciting prospect for us. That's what I wanted her to know. A lot of the labor unions, they were telling me that too."Judd might wait to run in 2016 against Sen. Rand Paul, according to Politico, but if she does run in 2014, she'd be going up against Sen. Mitch McConnell. The Republican, who is up for his sixth term, will make a fierce opponent against any candidate. McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, has already thrown down the gauntlet, warning the Democrats, "We're going to drive your negatives up and very aggressively and publicly litigate your record before the citizens of Kentucky."Matthew McConaughey's so skinny!

Judd is untested politically, but she has become quite the liberal activist over the years, speaking out on the AIDS epidemic, abortion rights and controversial mountaintop coal-mining techniques.Would Judd have your vote?
