Hi, I'm Kathleen

I am first and foremost a mom.  And while my three children are grown and making their way in three different states, in looking back at my life, I am most proud of my parenting and my children.  I love being a mom - I love teaching and nurturing and guiding and empowering people (both big and small).  Watching my children grow and learn and develop their own passions and interests and plans is such a joy.   


I am a former public high school English teacher.  I am a Guardian ad Litem with the Pinellas County Courts; I am the voice/advocate for a child who has been removed from the home due to abuse or neglect.  I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity by working on home builds and donating my hours to future home owners - I thoroughly enjoy making a personal connection and developing relationships as people work towards their goal of homeownership.   I am also active in both voter registration and engagement throughout our community.  


As your council member, I also represent Clearwater on various county/regional boards, including League of Cities, Tampa Bay Estuary Program, and Continuum of Care.   These all represent passions of mine:  advocating for Clearwater residents and neighborhoods, our environment, housing solutions, and driving down costs for city operations, businesses, and residents.


I’m so excited to have the opportunity to serve on our Clearwater City Council - I hope you’ll reach out to me to share your ideas and concerns.  

Kathleen Beckman
