Shirley J. McKellar

TX-1 (D)
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.
How does Shirley align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Shirley believes the role of the government should not be to create wealth, but to foster an environment where America’s entrepreneurial spirit can thrive.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Shirley wants to create equal pay for women.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Shirley wants to reform health care to provide access to individuals regardless of race, age or medical condition.
