Wait...What Just Happened in Annapolis?...............
It is my privilege to represent District 16 in the Maryland General Assembly. We have just completed the 2012 Legislative Session. I am proud to report we passed major legislation to improve the health, education, safety, and civil rights of Marylanders, protect our natural environment, and support Maryland businesses as they create jobs during the continued economic recovery.
However, our work is not yet done. It is widely expected the Governor will call us back to Annapolis within a few weeks for a special legislative session to make necessary improvements to the fiscal year 2013 budget.
Here are some highlights from this year’s legislative session that I think will be of particular interest you and the communities in Bethesda, North Bethesda, Friendship Heights, Somerset, Glen Echo, Rockville, Cabin John, and Potomac:
"Ariana possesses the rare combination of talent, intelligence and compassion that inspires people to listen closely to her ideas and believe in her. She has demonstrated strong leadership in her past efforts to secure legislation important to Maryland families. and I am convinced that as a state delegate representing District 16, she will take her passion and negotiating skills to even greater heights. Ariana is exactly the person anyone would want to advocate for their interests."
Doug Prouty, President, Montgomery County Education Association
"Ariana has spent her entire career advocating for children and families, and she won't stop when she is elected. She has the experience, skills, and expertise we need from a strong advocate for children and educators in Annapolis."
I am supporting Ariana because she has an impressive background with a demonstrated commitment to making a difference in her community. She is bright, articulate, hardworking, and an idealist with a practical sense of how to get things done. Her life shows a dedication to promoting the public good.
"Ariana is not only deeply committed to women's health. She is also smart, innovative, and a proven coalition builder. She was a savvy advocate for NARAL in Annapolis, and has an excellent track record with fiscal responsibility "
“Ariana Kelly is a defender of our environment who will move Maryland toward a clean energy future, promote smarter transportation solutions and protect our Chesapeake Bay and other natural habitats from big polluters.”
It is with unbridled enthusiasm that I endorse Ariana Kelly, Democrat for state Delegate. Ariana and I have a strong personal friendship developed over many years, so I’ve seen up-close as she’s fought to improve the lives of Maryland families. It would be an honor to serve with her in the House of Delegates.
Ariana will be the perfect addition to the District 16 team. Not only is she is intelligent, articulate and compassionate, she also has a tremendous track record of accomplishment. We need more women like her in the legislature to bring perspective and knowledge of the issues that affect Maryland families.
Ariana will be an impressive addition to our District 16 legislative team. She will bring extensive policy experience on the issues that matter to Montgomery County and a proven track record of fiscal responsibility to Annapolis.
"The NARAL family is proud to support Ariana Kelly. She will be a strong voice for progressive values. We live in challenging times. That’s why Ariana’s real-world experience running an organization and bringing people together to come up with practical solutions will serve her—and her constituents—well in Annapolis."
