Bipartisan Women Letter of Support for Kelly

An open letter to the voters of the 24th state senate district:

When our friend Kelly Rossman-McKinney decided to become a candidate to be your next state senator, most of us thought she was crazy. After all, she was the co-founder and CEO of the most successful bipartisan strategic communications firm in Michigan – Truscott Rossman – and was at the top of her game. Why on earth would she subject herself to the unwarranted attacks that are bound to come?

But Kelly is driven to bring compassion and compromise back to the Michigan Legislature, to take the vicious partisan politics out of the equation and bring back common sense problem-solving to the people of Michigan.

If anybody can do it, it’s Kelly Rossman-McKinney. She started her career in Lansing as a secretary in the House of Representatives, a single mom with a young son and a passion to make a difference. Less than 10 years later, she started her first PR firm at her kitchen table. She’s known for being outspoken – she asks hard questions, says what others are thinking, and has the courage to speak truth to power. It’s a quality we admire.

We may not always agree with Kelly but we know her heart and we know she will always make the very best decisions possible, seeking information from all sides of an issue and seeking input from the constituents she will serve.

Please help us get Kelly elected by taking the following five steps:
• Join our Facebook page
• Add your name to our bipartisan effort by signing up on our website
• Volunteer to walk your precinct
• Tell 10 friends about Kelly and why we need her in the Senate

We urge you to support Kelly Rossman-McKinney as your next state senator. She’s honest, fair and fierce – and she will work her heart out for you.

Add your name to the growing list!
