Kim Groome  (b. April 1960) served as a Democrat on the Ann Arbor City Council representing Ward 1 from November 2002 to August 2005.

But a few wavelets began to appear in this smooth sea. The chosen candidates of the ruling coalition began to encounter challenges. In the troublesome First Ward in particular, first Kim Groome (2002) and then Ron Suarez (2006) were elected. They weren’t with the program (which I will characterize loosely as pro-development without arguing all the points). As a result, they were treated badly. Although I’ve never heard this directly from her, it is thought in some circles that Kim Groome was driven out of town by nastiness.
