I read the letter to the editor (TNT, 7-16) which stated that state Rep. Troy Kelley does not respond to constituents, and I was personally offended.
As Kelley’s former legislative assistant, I know firsthand how hard he worked to respond to everyone. In fact, when I was hired the first thing he told me is, “I respond to every constituent.” And he verified this by the shear time and effort he put into his constituent services.
The 28th Legislative District is diverse, and people do not always agree, but Kelley took time to listen, discuss his views and build consensus. Constituent services are clearly a top priority for him. He is a public servant in the true sense of the words, and I was honored to work with him.
