Kelly was born on December 12, 1900, in Waterloo, Seneca County, New York, the son of James P. and Charlotte Bradshaw Kelley.He studied at ST. Mary's School in Waterloo, Saints Peter and Paul School, and West High School in Rochester, and took extension classes at the [University of Rochester]. After working at General Railroad Signal, the Ritter dental Company and Pfauldler Co, in 1920 he went to work for Fashion Park, Inc. a men's clothing company in Rochester, where he became labor manager.[1]

In 1932, he became the first Democrat to win a seat in the New York state Assembly from [Monroe County, NY] in more than forty years.[1]

He was a member of the New York State Assembly (Monroe Co., 2nd D.) in 1933 and 1934; and a member of the New York State Senate (45th D.) in 1935 and 1936. In 1936, he defeated the incumbent member of Congress, James P. B. Duffy, in a Democratic primary.[1] His successful campaign in the primary was a defeat for the Democratic organization of Monroe County and was powered by strong support by labor unions, and in particular the Amalgamated Clothing Workers.,.[2] The District consisted of almost all of the City of Rochester and the Towns of Greece, Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Brighton, Perinton, Pittsford, Rush and Henrietta.

Kelly did particularly well in the 1936 primary in the north east section of Rochester, in the 8th and 16th Wards, home of Rochester's Italian community and clothing industry.[3] As a later political analysis put it, "Kelly, who is as Irish as his name, learned Italian as a young man, and he'd the first to tell you that his knowledge of the language didn't hurt him a bit in the early and mid-1930s when he was elected to the State Assembly, then the state Senate, and finally Congress. He always had strong support from the so-called 'industrial wards' on the east side [of Rochester], heavily populated by Italian clothing workers."[4]

He was elected as a Democrat to the 75th United States Congress, holding office from January 3, 1937, to January 3, 1939. He ran for re-election in 1938 and 1940, but was twice defeated by Republican Joseph J. O'Brien.

On December 10, 1936 he married Catherine Weber, a secretary in the Democratic party headquarters.[5] They had one son, James Kelley.[1]

Kelly died on June 26, 1971, while on a European vacation in Lyon, France.[1] He was buried at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Waterloo.[6]
