"I am supporting Ariana's re-election because I know she will continue the smart, effective, values-based leadership we deserve."
- Senator Brian Frosh, District 16
Last week, The Gazette also strongly endorsed my campaign for re-election:
"Kelly.. is strong on women’s and family issues."
"She passed laws requiring that every hospital emergency room in the state — not just one in each county — have at least a protocol for providing rape kits for victims of sexual assault. She also has fought to require small businesses to provide employees with job-protected maternity and paternity leave, and to mandate that insurance companies cover autism treatment."
I am proud of what I have accomplished in my first four-year term. Whether is was fighting against the middle class tax hike that disproportionately hurt Montgomery County families, or fighting for marriage equality, environmental protections, and commonsense gun control, my voice in Annapolis has been strong and effective.
I work to build unexpected consensus around issues others have found impossible to tackle - like autism insurance and parental leave. I'm not afraid to take the principled stands other politicians might shy away from, including asking the tough questions of leadership when necessary, earning the respect of my colleagues from within Montgomery County and across the state.
I am excited about what I will be able to accomplish for us in my next term. That's why I'm asking you to join Senator Frosh and The Gazette, and so many others in supporting in my re-election campaign.
Delegate Ariana Kelly
