Kelly Moller is a career prosecutor, victim rights advocate, and Shoreview mother who is running for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 42A, which includes Arden Hills, Mounds View, Shoreview, and Spring Lake Park.
Kelly has built her career as an attorney working for a safer Minnesota. She went to law school after friends shared with her that they were survivors of assault, and she’s devoted herself to improving the system’s response to crime victims while also ensuring that the most dangerous offenders are held accountable. Kelly recently collaborated with various groups to improve Minnesota’s hit-and-run law after she was contacted by a victim whose brother was killed by a hit-and-run driver.
Kelly will listen to the people of our district and be a voice for them with the same thoughtfulness, passion, and conviction that she has had as a prosecutor seeking justice.
Kelly is currently an Assistant Hennepin County Attorney and handles criminal appeals on behalf of the State of Minnesota. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a business degree and Hamline University School of Law. Kelly worked for the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office for more than a decade before serving as the Executive Director of the Minnesota Alliance on Crime. Kelly has been recognized by the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault for her work to secure victim privacy and by MADD for strengthening the hit-and-run law. She is a member of the Minnesota County Attorney’s Association appellate committee, AFSCME Local 2938, and Shoreview’s public safety committee.
Kelly and her husband Kevin, who is a project manager at Boston Scientific in Arden Hills, have lived in Shoreview for nearly 20 years. Their two sons attend Mounds View Public Schools where Kelly has volunteered and served as member of the curriculum advisory committee. She and her father coached children’s community sports teams together. As a longtime member of St. Odilia Catholic Church, Kelly has served on a ministry area council and taught children’s faith, internet, and personal safety classes. In her free time, Kelly enjoys traveling with her family, yoga, and scrapbooking.
Kelly believes that it is more important than ever that the legislature works together for everyday Minnesotans and provides opportunities that allow everyone to reach their fullest potential.
