West Virginia has the oldest population by age in the nation and we must make seniors a top priority by addressing health care, housing, prescription costs
Reduce tax burden on pensions - Kelli co-sponsored legislation that would exempt pensions from state taxes and supports and has sponsored legislation that would increase the homestead exemption. Our seniors give us the best years of their life, and State government should not penalize their hard work and commitment to their families and to their State.

Assisted Living for our Seniors - While a member of the House Committee on Health & Human Resources, Kelli worked on creating a definition of assisted living so that our seniors can "age in place" so that the nursing home is the last resort, not the first alternative.

West Virginia leads the nation in uninsured adults and we have one of the unhealthiest populations in the country. Kelli voted for legislation that helps address this: The Health Plan for Uninsurable Act & the Small Employer Accident and Sickness Insurance Bill. Affordable & available healthcare is important to West Virginia!

Because of Kelli's commitment to healthcare, she is endorsed by doctors (WESPAC) and hospitals (HOSPAC)!
