House of Representatives
Shirley J. McKellar
Current office holder: Louie Gohmert Jr. (R)
Shirley began working on political campaigns supporting her favorite candidates at the age of 18. From this experience and suggestions from collagues, she realized she had the potential to serve her country -- again. During Shirley's deployment in Operation Iraqi Freedom as a professional nurse in the Army, she was injured and had to return home a wounded warrior. At first she was disappointed tha she could not continue to serve her country. However, she realized that everywhere we look there are needs to be met and opportunities to serve, and she is seizing these opportunities by seeking to become a truthful spokesperson for the concerns of the people of Texas in the U.S. Congress.
