Yankee Institute's Voter Guide

See also: Yankee Institute's Voter Guide

The Yankee Institute, a pro-market think tank, releases its Voter Guide after each two-year legislative term. Each member of the Connecticut General Assembly receives a score from 0 to 10 based on how he or she voted in ten key votes. The Institute selects key votes which "reveal the differences between those legislators that would harness the power of individual liberty and the market to improve lives, and those that prefer a centrally-planned approach." A legislator with a 10 voted in agreement with the Yankee Institute on all 10 votes, while a legislator with a 0 voted against the Yankee Institute's views or was absent for all 10 votes.[8]


Kelly received a score of 7 on the Yankee Institute's Voter Guide for 2011-12, tied for the 6th highest score among the 36 scored members of the Connecticut Senate. He did not receive a score for the 2009-10 term because he was not yet in the legislature.[8]


Kelly is a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, New Dominion School Advisory Board, Maryland State Bar Association, Maryland Rural Caucus, Governor's Flood Mitigation Task Force for Western Maryland, Western Maryland Economic Development Task Force, and the Tri-County Council for Western Maryland.[9]
