Voice of the Conservative Vote: Kelly Horsley

Kelly Horsley is a native Houstonian, a wife and stay at home mom to three boys, which she home schools. She firmly believes in the vision that our founding fathers had for our freedoms when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. She dove head first into politics when she saw that these documents were being ignored with the first of the bailouts in 2008 and the election of President Obama.
Kelly enjoys representing her precinct as precinct chairman, serving as election judge and clerk on election days, serving on several committees within the local party structure and connecting with other like-minded individuals within the Harris County Republican Party. Kelly has also had the privilege of working on numerous campaigns, one in which took her to Ohio to campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in the 2012 election cycle. She feels it’s vital to stay connected so that she can keep watch over hers and others' freedoms that have been slowly being eroded with the current presidential administration.
In her spare time, Kelly loves to read mystery books with her three sons. She also likes to drink coffee, workout at the gym, bake cakes and cookies, and blog about her political involvement on her personal blog, The Political Chicken.
One of her favorite quotes is from Samuel Adams, a quote that reminds us of the importance of paying attention to government and the things around you and taking action when necessary; “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
"I am an advocate for liberty and remaining free as a country. Our freedom of speech and freedom of the press is under attack on a daily basis. When folks say things that we may not like, it is often our gut reaction to silence them, but, their right to that speech is also protected under the same first amendment that ours is. It's been said that liberty is messy, and it IS, but isn't it worth fighting for?"
