For Pasco County Commissioner, District 2

Stand with Kelly

Diverse Economy

Pasco County’s current population is 512,000 residents and that number is expected to grow to over 1 million residents within the next 20 years. In order to sustain that kind of growth Pasco County needs to be a place  where people live AND work. We need a diverse economy with quality jobs. We need not just more jobs, we need better jobs.

Responsible Development

I began my career in municipal government and served as the zoning administrator for the City of Marco Island for eight years. During that time, the community was dealing with many of the same development challenges that Pasco County is dealing with now. Currently I serve as an operations coordinator with an international engineering firm that specializes in transportation engineering. The execution of development and growth is the biggest challenge facing Pasco County, and I have the knowledge and experience to make sure that the county’s future is led by responsible development.

Quality of Life

I believe the quality of life should be elevated for everyone in Pasco County regardless of what area of Pasco County you live in. This includes properly maintained parks, safe and affordable housing, and effective community services.

“Galentine’s Day is about celebrating women working together, and that’s how we’re going to win,” said Smith, who lives in Pasco County on the state’s west coast.
