Kelley shares vision

This letter is being written in support of Bruce Kelley for mayor.

I had the privilege of getting to know Kelley through his community involvement in downtown Altoona. While working on a cleanup project, he shared his vision for attracting new businesses.

Kelley knows the value of education and understands the importance of supporting the studies in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

With his support toward additional STEM resources, especially those with hands-on aspect, it will only help to inspire the next innovative generation.

As the director and co-founder of Catalyst Space, I was given the privilege to accompany Kelley on a tour of our new facility, where he again shared his support and enthusiasm for our innovative organization.

I look forward to seeing the many other great achievements that will occur with Bruce Kelley as mayor.

Justin Merrell, Altoona
