Kelly Morrissey

Candidate, Town Council

Kelly Morrissey was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. She and her husband, Paul, moved to Southington in 2009, and have 2 young children. This is her first venture into the political arena and she is excited to have the opportunity to positively impact Southington.

Kelly attended Siena College in Albany, NY on a division I swimming scholarship and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She worked for a public accounting firm focusing on municipal government audits until she accepted a position as a special agent in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), stationed in Los Angeles, CA. After years in Los Angeles spent investigating money laundering and drug trafficking she and Paul decided that they wanted to start a family, but Kelly’s career as a federal agent was not conducive to the family life they envisioned. Kelly resigned from the DEA and accepted a position with ESPN where she is currently the Associate Director of Facilities, Security & Safety Operations at ESPN in Bristol, CT.

Kelly is a member of the Flanders PTO and was the “Room Mom” for the Kindergarten class this past year. Kelly is an active member of the YMCA. She and her family are members of the Southington Bread for Life, partaking in their family initiatives program. She is a member of St. Dominic’s Church and a volunteer at the St. Philips house in Plainville, CT.

Kelly is running for town council to support the community she has come to love, where she is raising her family. Kelly believes that the community and everyone in it deserve a voice. She wants to represent those voices.
