Kelley: Freshman Legislator Of The Year

Jefferson City - To honor and recognize the efforts of Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Barton, for his work this year on education issues, Speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives Steven Tilley, R-Farmington, awarded him the Freshman Legislator of the Year Award for Education. “I firmly believe actions speak louder than words and as an elected official, those actions are crucial to the well-being of our constituents. I commend Rep. Kelley on his actions regarding education issues showing firsthand that his actions demonstrate leadership for the people of his district,” said Speaker Tilley.

Through his role as a member of the House Committee for Education Appropriations, Rep. Kelley helped promote legislation that would improve the education of Missouri’s youth. Rep. Kelley has also been asked by Rep. Lair the chairman of Education Appropriations committee to do detailed research into the transportation budget for K-12 and the use of state funds at MSSU, Crowder College and OTC.

“While we are not fully funded, the schools’ budget statewide is better than originally thought,” said Rep. Kelley, “I look forward to next year’s legislative session.”
