I am pleased to support of Kathy Kelker for re-election to the Legislature representing House District 47.
I was a school psychologist in Billings Public Schools for 38 years. During that time, I observed Kathy championing the rights of children and families and working hard on their behalf. Kathy’s life has been one of public service from being a pre-K teacher to college professor to serving on the Billings School Board (for five terms, 15 years), to directing Head Start, to being a representative in the Legislature for the last two sessions. She works to support high quality public education. She works for the protection of our environment and for access to health care. She always works on our behalf.
What has impressed me over the years, is Kathy’s calm and measured approach to problem-solving. She does her homework. She excels at listening to both sides of an issue and reaching consensus. She brings these skills and leadership to bear when working in the Legislature and in committee meetings. Kathy stays in touch with her constituents, and she knows their concerns which she considers in proposing or advancing legislation.
Please vote to return Kathy Kelker to her important work in the Legislature.
