SIX MEASURES I WILL WORK ON TO MAKE US SAFE
DEFUNDING SANCTUARY CITIES AND COUNTIES
Kelly is opposed to sanctuary cities and counties that harbor illegal immigrants from being deported. She will make certain any city or county in Georgia doesn’t receive state funding and believes in holding those accountable who break our laws. It is unconscionable some elected leaders would rather protect criminal, illegal aliens who have committed violent crimes than protect those they were elected and sworn to serve, our families. Kelly supports efforts to overturn local sanctuary policies that violate immigration laws and put Georgians at risk.
KEEPING SCHOOLS SAFE
When I was in elementary school and it was time for recess, the girls played hopscotch, rode the merry-go-rounds, and would swing while the boys played cops and robbers with their toy guns they brought to school. We were playing and no one hurt another. Never once did my parents worry about my well-being or safety when I was in school. Ever.
Things are different today. Evil knows no bounds and hatred has no restraints. Think back to the first recorded murder in history. Cain killed Abel. While we don’t know what Cain used to kill his brother, some speculate it was a rock or knife. It doesn’t matter because anything can be made a weapon when it is conceived by an evil mind intended on causing violence and death. Our problem is a condition of the heart with a lack of moral clarity and values not guns.
One only has to look at Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore to understand cities with the toughest gun laws have the worst gun violence. It is devastating and tragic. Compare these three cities to one of Georgia’s safest cities which requires its citizens own a gun. The law of the city of Kennesaw states “every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm.” This law was passed to deter crime. As a result, Kennesaw has only had one murder in the last six years and has a violent crime rate below 2%.
Fort Knox, NORAD Cave, The White House, Area 51, Air Force One, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, The ADX Florence Prison, The Pentagon, NSA Headquarters, and CIA Headquarters have received the distinction of being one of the top 10 most secured buildings in the USA.
My desire is for Georgia’s schools to receive that same distinction rather than being listed as a “Gun Free Zone” which puts a bullseye target on schools for those who are evil and intend to cause hurt and damage. Nothing in this world is more important than protecting human life and keeping children safe when they go to school.
Serving on the School Board for the Department of Juvenile Justice, I have seen firsthand how DJJ’s facilities are protected, safe, and secure with fences, towers, armed guards, scanners, controlled doors, and cameras. As a result, no one can storm these facilities and there has never been a school shooting at a DJJ facility.
As an ardent defender and supporter of the Second Amendment, the solution to making schools safer is not passing gun control laws. You cannot legislate evil by taking away the rights of law abiding citizens granted to them by the Second Amendment.
The solution to making schools safer is not labeling them “Gun Free Zones.” This does nothing but invite a devasting, deadly attack by one who has evil thoughts to harm those unprotected, vulnerable, and defenseless.
I am committed to ensuring Georgia’s schools are the safest places in the world by working on six initiatives.
Fully funding the Quality Basic Education (QBE) formula so local school boards receive money from the state to invest in safety initiatives
Wholly protecting, securing, and safeguarding school grounds, buildings, and buses
Eliminating school designations as “Gun Free Zones”
Implementing safety training programs for staff and students
Developing responsive learning programs that deter bullying, anger, and abuse
Partnering with mental health agencies to provide services for students suffering with mental illness
I am committed to making Georgia the model for how to protect schools, students, and staff.
SUPPORTING PUBLIC SAFETY
You work a lifetime to build a home and provide for your family and you shouldn’t have to worry about keeping either safe. Kelly lost her grandfather and uncle in the line of duty, both of whom had distinguished careers in law enforcement. She knows personally the sacrifices first responders make and will give them the support they need.
Kelly knows what our law enforcement personnel face every day. She will work to provide all of the support to keep our Johns Creek first responders trained, equipped, and prepared to keep us safe. Kelly is committed to maintaining Johns Creek’s high standards and quality of life.
Governor Deal appointed Kelly to serve on the Board of Directors for the Department of Juvenile Justice to help implement criminal justice reform.
DEFENDING GEORGIA’S CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW
We are a nation of immigrants and will always be welcoming to those who come to our country and state legally. Different cultures must respect and abide by our laws and we will hold those accountable who break our laws. No radical religious rules can ever supersede our laws and order.
DEPORTING ILLEGAL ALIENS
There is a right way and a wrong way to enter our country. Those who enter our country and come to our state illegally drive up taxpayer costs for education, law enforcement, and public healthcare through Medicaid. Georgia’s taxpayers who pay their taxes honestly shouldn’t be responsible for shouldering the tax burden for those who are here illegally.
We must reform welfare to address illegal immigration as too many are dependent on our government services. We must not fund sanctuary cities or counties. We must ensure businesses utilize E-verify to not hire those here illegally. We must stop non-citizens from voting in our elections. Considering the significant and disastrous impacts of illegal immigration, Kelly is committed to making illegal immigration law enforcement measures and policies a high priority.
FIGHTING THE OPIOID CRISIS
Opioids are prescription drugs that relieve pain including morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone, and fentanyl. There is also an illegal opioid with the street name, heroin.
The Opioid crisis is a domestic public health emergency, top national priority, and the leading cause of deaths of those under the age of 50. On average, 115 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose. The abuse of opioids is the deadliest drug overdose crisis in US history destroying families, devastating communities, and requiring the involvement of all three levels of the government, law enforcement, first responders, health insurance companies, and medical professionals.
Federal Government – The federal government is addressing this nationwide crisis through multiple agencies and by introducing more than 70 pieces of legislation focused on awareness, prevention, treatment, recovery, and crime.
Local Government – Local governments are responding to this epidemic through law enforcement, arming first responders with antidote drugs, creating crisis hotlines, and establishing drug drop boxes to discard unused and expired prescriptions.
State Government – Georgia ranks 11 for states with the most prescription opioid overdoses. As a state, there is a cost to dealing and not dealing with this crisis.
Not dealing with this crisis will result in increased costs to the state through
More crime and incarcerations driving up the costs for criminal justice
More children being placed in foster care, the second leading cause behind neglect
More people with addictive diseases
Kelly supports the state dealing with this crisis by
Providing Georgia’s families a tax credit when using an accredited, licensed drug rehabilitation or substance abuse center. This will allow families to deal with this crisis privately using their own funds without creating a state program.
Funding the Georgia Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Initiative (GPDAPI) to prevent and reduce prescription drug abuse in Georgia by focusing on education, advocacy, safe storage, secure disposal, and enforcement.
Collaboration of local, state, and federal agencies working together to combat this crisis
Larger fines, stronger penalties, and increased sentences for drug traffickers and pill mill doctors
