As a woman, mom and teacher, Kelly knows she can offer a fresh perspective not just for the people of the 129th district, but for all of Pennsylvania. Through her role as a teacher, she has seen tremendous change and diversity in her district go unrepresented over the last ten years. She wants to be the voice for all of the people in her district.
She is running because she believes Pennsylvania can do better for its citizens. She is an advocate for creating a livable wage, access to affordable quality healthcare, and promoting an innovative plan for school property taxes. She also believes Pennsylvania needs to do its part and work towards environmental sustainability to ensure our future generations grow up with clean water and fresh air. Kelly will also promote equal opportunity for all citizens by giving a voice to women, minorities, and the LGBT community in Harrisburg.
