KYMA:Democratic candidate Mark Kelly virtual campaigning

A Democratic and first-time candidate for Arizona’s Senate, Mark Kelly, is virtual campaigning in an effort to reach hundreds of community members including in Yuma County during the pandemic to address their concerns.

“We’re seeing rising cases, we need some help, there are things that the federal government can do including encouraging people to social distance, wear a face mask, and provide that protective equipment people need,” said Kelly.

Kelly also stressed the importance of wide-spread testing in the state of Arizona especially in rural communities like Yuma. He says several have stated the concern about waiting up to 13 hours to get tested. “Only with extensive testing and contact tracing and then isolating individuals can we stop the spread of infectious disease and it’s not happening in Arizona,” said Kelly.
