WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho) today announced the hiring of North Idaho natives Kaci Ralstin and Marc Kilmer to lead his Lewiston and Coeur d’Alene regional offices, respectively.
“I am fortunate to have two experienced Idahoans leading my North Idaho offices,” said Risch. “Kaci and Marc both have deep Idaho roots, and I am confident they will serve our great state well.”
Lewiston Regional Director Kaci Ralstin has a strong agricultural background, working 12 years for the Farm Service Agency and six years at the Idaho Department of Lands. She resides on a family farm in Nezperce with her husband, a fourth-generation farmer, and their three children. Ralstin enjoys camping and boating with her family and is actively involved in community activities, including 4H, the Lewis County Fair, and Nezperce Youth Sports.
Marc Kilmer, a fifth-generation Idahoan raised in Bonner County, this week began as Senator Risch’s Regional Director in Coeur d’Alene. Kilmer worked for Senator Larry Craig after graduating from Hillsdale College in Michigan. He then led a trade association of nonprofits that serve people with disabilities and worked for a variety of free market think tanks. Kilmer held an elected county position in Maryland before moving his family back to Idaho, where they reside in Post Falls. He served as Congressman Russ Fulcher’s Regional Director prior to his new role.
