Kalish Morrow is the sitting Mayor for the City of Hanford. Shortly after taking her seat on city council, the mayor at the time, Francisco Ramirez, switched parties to become a Libertarian - he is still a sitting Councilmember. In mid 2021, the council elected to make an appointment to fill a soon to be empty city council seat. Council appointed Amanda Saltray, who also went on to reregister as a Libertarian giving the city of Hanford a Libertarian majority on council.

She sits as a board member on the League of Cities: San Joaquin Division where she was appointed to one of their Legislative Committees regarding Environmental Quality to promote control at the local level through lobbying in Sacramento.

She and Kenneth Brent Olsen have started a Political Consulting Company, Gold Rush Consulting, and are currently running 3 local races for City Council, and advising on a handful of other local races.

She is the current Hanford Rep for the Libertarian Party of Kings County and currently an At-Large Member of the Libertarian Party of California Executive Committee. She has been a member of the Libertarian Party since 2016, when she ran for Hanford City Council the first time. She formerly owned a small business in downtown Hanford, California: The Soaking Tub. She is the former President of the now defunct non-profit Heart of Hanford, as well its founder. She is married and has two children.
