"As a local business owner, I've seen firsthand the growth our area has experienced since Katrina. We're in a great position to build on this growth, but we need leadership that understands how to pursue smart economic development - where the benefits don't outweigh the costs. With your vote we can make this a reality."
Kelly is co-owner of Kelly Firearms, a family business located in Picayune that holds the distinction of manufacturing Mississippi's first production rifle. "I'm proud of the business my family has built, right here in Picayune. I'm confident that with the right leadrship, Picayune can continue to grow," Kelly said.
Kelly, a former Chairman and Executive Committee member of the Pearl River Country Republican Party, says that defending conservative values will be one of his top priorities. "We pay enough in taxes already, and the answer to every problem is not to raise taxes. I will never vote to increase taxes. I will always stand up to defend the rights of the unborn, the right to bear arms, and the personal freedoms that we enjoy." he said. Kelly is also an Eagle Scout and a graduate of Mississippi State University.
