Kelly Keisling announces re-election bid for State Representative, District 38


BYRDSTOWN, TN — State Representative Kelly Keisling has announced he will seek re-election to the Tennessee House of Representatives in 2024. 


"It’s been an honor to serve the people of the 38th House District," said Representative Keisling. "My family and I appreciate the support we have received over the years, and I humbly ask for your vote this fall."  


As Chairman of the State Government Committee, he has worked diligently to ensure state government is held accountable on behalf of all Tennesseans. Keisling previously served as Chairman of the House Insurance & Banking Subcommittee during the 110th General Assembly.


Throughout his tenure, Keisling has supported investments benefiting Tennessee students, teachers, and public schools. He has championed initiatives to raise teacher pay, increase educational resources, and expand vocational and technical training. Just last year, he supported legislation that invested $1 billion in our Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology. 


Being a good steward of taxpayer dollars and ensuring sound financial management is a top priority for Keisling. Every legislative session he has voted in support of a fiscally conservative and balanced budget. Tennessee has the lowest debt per capita, no personal income tax on wages and salaries, and no transportation debt. In 2023, Keisling supported an effort to cut taxes by $404 million, the largest in Tennessee’s history. 


He is pro-life and has been honored with the endorsement of Tennessee Right to Life. A champion of the Second Amendment, Keisling is a member of the National Rifle Association as well as our Tennessee Firearms Association. 


“I continue to be incredibly honored to serve as the voice for the people of the 38th District in Nashville," said Representative Keisling. "We have accomplished a lot, but there is still much work to be done in order to ensure our communities of Clay, Fentress, Macon, Pickett and Scott counties are the best place to live, work, raise a family, and retire. I am appreciative of your support and look forward to continuing my service in the Tennessee General Assembly."


Kelly Keisling serves as Chairman of the State Government Committee as well as serving as a member of the Calendar & Rules Committee, Finance, Ways & Means Committee, Government Operations Committee, Appropriations Subcommittee, Corrections Subcommittee, Departments & Agencies Subcommittee, Public Service & Employees Subcommittee.
