Campaigning for: State House District 53

Kelly Coffman did not respond to the questionnaire.

A board-certified psychiatrist, Dr. Kelly Coffman says she decided to run for the Georgia House after seeing that “state government wasn’t working for all Georgians.” She’s billing herself as “a neighbor who wants to get things done for everyone in our community.” She is an advocate for expanding Medicaid and for expanding access to mental health services, according to her campaign website. She believes early education should be a priority, so children have the tools they need to be successful in school. She wants to see teacher salaries increased and the history that’s taught in public schools include “the good, the bad and the ugly” in order to avoid the mistakes of the past. On gun safety, she is calling for “common-sense gun laws that ensure only well-trained, licensed and verified citizens” have access to guns.”
