Kelly's priorities are informed by her own personal experiences living, working and parenting in the district - and by conversations she has daily with her constituents. 
I stress the fact that I am Independent - not beholden to Republicans or Democrats - because I believe I can be a more effective representative by being open to all ideas and compromises that may benefit our communities and our state.
