Republican Candidate for State Rep Has Winning Formula, she says
Not only was Sunday’s Bristol Borough Stroll a success, Lower Bucks Source had the opportunity to speak with Bristol’s own Kelly Bellerby-Allen, Republican candidate for state Representative in the newly structured 141st legislative district.
Bellerby-Allen will once again face incumbent, state Representative Tina Davis (D-141).
Davis beat Bellerby-Allen decisively in 2020, by a little more than 7000 votes.- or 2 to 1 margin. But the Republican candidate says with the newly formed district her chances of winning are significantly better this time around.
“I’m from Bristol and you know Bristolians always support each other. With Bristol Borough added to the district I can definitely win this time around”
Bellerby-Allen says that’s one aspect of her formula for winning the seat. Plus the fact, she says voters in the district register as Democrats so they can vote in local elections. She cited the success of Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1) who earned Democratic votes in past elections.
Her thinking is, turn out voters who are really Republicans at heart, but are registered Democrats.
“I really think that’s a key to this race” she said.
She’s been our door knocking every weekend, and has taken advantage of all the events in Bristol to meet and speak with voters, discussing her experience as a business owner and her volunteer work.
“Through my experience as a small business owner and volunteer, I believe I am ready to step up and serve the people of Lower Bucks” she said.
Often Bellerby- Allen is out campaigning in the district with fellow Republican state senatorial candidate Matt McCullough. He’s challenging current state Senator Steve Santarsierio for the 10th district seat.
Protecting our community’s economic growth is my number one priority. I will promote strong job growth in our community by both supporting our small businesses, as well as our trade and technical schools, has been her mantra this campaign season.
When speaking with area voters like she was doing Sunday when a registered voter walked into her hair salon, “Galmor” on Mill Street, just to let Bellerbe-Allen, know she has his support and vote come November.
During the animated conversation, the candidate thanked the new Bristol area resident for his support explaining the 141st legislative district needs change, as her campaign literature says.
“…We need people in government who understand what it means to be an average person, struggling to raise a family in Lower Bucks County. We need someone who knows the most important part of the job is being here for the people of our community.”
Bellerby-Allen intimated Davis’ incumbent status has led the current state Rep to expect voters to continue to support her, but where is she today? Not in Bristol for this beautiful event, she queered aloud. And she really hasn’t been available for her constituents either, she said.
I will be. I’ll be there for everyone and anyone when I am elected
Davis has held her seat for just about 12 years as she seeks reelection to a seventh term.
