Kelly Smith is running to be your House Representative in the state of Michigan. He may not be a polished politician, but he knows how to make a positive difference at our Capitol.
Kelly is a proud lifelong resident of White Cloud in Newaygo County. Kelly began his professional career as a driver for the Newaygo County Road Commission in 1985, and was shortly elected by his fellow employees as Union Steward.
Kelly was privileged to work his way to become manager at the road commission, where his duties included serving on several statewide committees to serve as an advocate for all Michigan county road commissions in Lansing for issues regarding funding, technology, and much more. His work taught him the benefits of hard work, friendship, collaborating with others, and the value of a dollar.
Kelly has also served as a member of the Fremont Area Community Foundation’s Community and Economic Development committee, which handles grant funding for organizations seeking to strengthen and grow a sustainable local economy. His experiences have strengthened his belief in protecting our American Constitution, restoring our economy, job growth and creation, and listening to the voice of the people as we work to a stronger future.
His wife Pam, their four children, and their 2 grandchildren are all happy to support Kelly on his run for office. They believe his experience in Lansing, and his devoted work ethic, will empower Kelly to represent the 101st district and steer the right kind of change.
