Kimberly Hahn is a careful listener and an energetic leader. Born in Pittsburgh and raised in Cincinnati, Kimberly has lived in Steubenville for the last twenty-five years. She is married to Dr. Scott Hahn with whom she has six children and eleven grandchildren.

Kimberly attended Grove City College, where she met the love of her life, Scott. She graduated in 1979 with a B.A. in Communication Arts. After marrying Scott, she earned her Master of Arts from Gordon-Conwell.

In 1990, Kimberly and Scott chose to settle in Steubenville, so Scott could take a teaching position and they could be closer to extended family in the area. Kimberly focused on raising their children: Michael, Gabriel, Hannah, Jeremiah, Joseph, and David. In addition to being a part of numerous outreaches and ministries in the community, Kimberly was a Big Red Football Mom for two sons and a Catholic Central Soccer Mom for two sons.

Kimberly has contributed to the Steubenville community by caring for neighbors and friends, educating children, and participating in various local civic, music, religious, and athletic groups. In addition to speaking yearly to more than 10,000 people around the country, as well as in Steubenville, Kimberly has written a number of books on marriage and family life.

Kimberly cares deeply for our community. She is seeking election to the Steubenville City Council, Council-at-Large, to extend her service. She carries her LaBelle neighborhood in her heart, but she believes that the solutions to the various problems neighborhoods face will only be solved if everyone works together.

Kimberly is a member of the following local organizations:

  • Steubenville Hilltop Community Development Corp.
  • Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce
  • Steubenville Revitalization Group
  • St. Peter’s Church Choir
  • Ohio Valley Right to Life

Kimberly is ready to listen to you, the people of Steubenville.

What are your challenges in raising a family here?

your concerns about the management of city finances here?

your desires for more jobs, so your children can choose to live here?

and your hopes for affordable, safe housing in which your children can raise the next generation here?

Our children may be born here – they may have been raised here –

but will they choose to live here? can they choose to live here?

Kimberly is ready to lead – to bring the larger community together, sharing ideas, so that we can move forward.

We can do better.

We must do better!

What is happening in our city that affects you?

Economic Development

"Drive out of Steubenville any direction -- signs of prosperity and development - why not here? We have affordable housing, low cost of living, and an available work force. Thousands of us are good, law-abiding citizens. What discourages people from offering employment here? Crime and trash. If we can deal decisively with violent, drug-related crime, and if we can clean up our city, we CAN attract employers with good-paying jobs. Let's gather new ideas for economic development and renew our city! I have listened -- and I believe I have the energy, the integrity, the vision to lead."



"I believe City Council has to live within their means just as we have to in our homes with our budgets. If expenses are higher than expected, we adjust our budgets."




Express Your Concerns

"I decided to run for Steubenville Council-At-Large because I want to serve the city in new ways. City Council works for the people -- they need to listen to the people, and then lead! I have listened -- I've knocked on more than 6,200 homes. I have spoken to thousands of people across all fourteen precincts in homes, at games, in restaurants and parks. I welcome these conversations, exploring fresh ideas for solutions to our problems. I will continue to be that kind of leader, offering public forums to address issues. Our #1 asset is our people -- a caring community."
