Convention of States Delaware Team Loses Valued Member

Published in Blog on December 22, 2022 by Susan Foy

The COS Delaware team lost a valuable member and colleague when Kimberlyn Allen passed away suddenly on November 24, Thanksgiving evening. She was 58 years old. Her death came as a great shock to everyone who knew her.

Kim had lived in Delaware all her life, growing up in the Glasgow area. She earned her real estate license in 1987 and developed a successful career as a realtor. She was married to Rick Allen for 31 years, and together, they had two sons, Richard Jr. and Evan. Kim was also an active member of Connection Community Church in Middletown and was passionate about her Christian faith. She volunteered at the Food Bank of Delaware and was a fitness enthusiast who exercised daily.

Kim became involved in the Convention of States in 2019 as DC for District 27 in the Glasgow/Bear area. State Director Ginny Watkins says, “Kimberlyn was the first to volunteer for the Delaware team as it was rebuilding from scratch in the fall of 2019. She had learned about COS from Mark Levin, signed the petition, and immediately took the initiative to apply for the district captain role. She took her DC job seriously from the very beginning, attending an event within the first month where she would meet her legislators. She was also fun-loving and people-oriented, helping to make newcomers feel welcomed and informed at our many meetings and team social events. She was passionate for her country and fulfilled the district captain role faithfully.”

Michael “Doc” Pushkarewitz remembers that Kim was the first person he met at the first COS informational meeting he attended, and she was friendly, helpful, and easy to talk to. Karen Wrightson adds, “Kimberlyn always had a smile and she was the snack queen! Always made sure we had snacks at the booth or the meetings.” Many team members remember that Kim was the first person in a pool at the annual pool party and the last one out!

A memorial service was held for Kim on December 10 at Connection Community Church, attended by many members of the COS team. Her husband, son, and many friends spoke of their love for Kim and how much she meant to them, and how they will all miss her. She is also irreplaceable in the Delaware team and in our efforts to save the republic!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
