Here she is in 2019 testifying in front of the Transportation Committee on why it was critical to ban red light cameras in Texas. I was privileged to sit on that committee and take this photo. I sent it to her afterward and she was so pleased to have this memory from her testimony. This is how I will remember her – a passionate defender and advocate for the causes she believed in. No one worked harder on the red light issue in Texas than Kelly. She will be dearly missed by many.”

She was an original member of Team Tinderholt back in the very early campaign days when we used to meet upstairs in my home.
I was honored to work with her during the past 8 years, pushing Conservative Republican priorities. She was smart, kind, loyal, dedicated, and a hard worker. She helped to defeat red light cameras and helped get many conservative candidates elected to office.
I truly feel if it was not for her help, I would not be in the position I am in now.….for that I am forever grateful. I was honored to nominate her back in 2014 as a conservative leader and enjoyed showing her how to unsheath her saber. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.”
