Letter: Kelly for governor


Thursday, August 30, 2018

The first time I heard Molly Kelly speak, I knew that she would get my vote for governor. I learned that she was goal-oriented and willing to work as hard as necessary to reach her goals.

While rearing three children she worked her way to a bachelor’s degree from Keene State and a law degree from Franklin Pierce Law Center. Molly’s chief passion has been the well-being of children. In her 10 years on the state Senate Education Committee, she established a K-12 education accountability system that integrates student performance and measurable outcomes, fought for mandatory kindergarten, and ensured that school lunch programs do not discriminate against any child.

When Molly chaired the Governor’s Advanced Manufacturing Education Advisory Council, she worked to bring the business and education communities together for strategic planning on skills training that would function most effectively for the success of the students and the economy of New Hampshire. Innovative programs like this are a model and will improve our education system.

Molly always speaks out on behalf of children. Recently I saw Molly and state Sen. Dan Feltes’s press conference outlining tragic problems in DCYF that led to the death of several children. Molly’s presentation was well-researched and should serve as a guideline for correcting the problems of that vital but troubled agency. We can count on Molly to fight on the front lines.

I hope you’ll join me in voting for Molly Kelly on Sept. 11.
