Kelly Joy Hoare (born 1 July 1963), Australian politician, was an Australian Labor Party member of the Australian House of Representatives from 1998 to 2007, representing the Division of Charlton, New South Wales. She lost Labor preselection for the 2007 election.

She was born in Deniliquin, New South Wales, the daughter of Bob Brown, who represented the Division of Hunter from 1980 to 1984 and Charlton from 1984 to 1998. Hoare was educated at the University of Canberra, and was father's electorate officer and a public servant before entering Federal Parliament. Her public service roles were in the Department of Defence as an internal auditor, and in the employment department, with responsibility for unemployed people with special needs.[1]

On 4 May 2007, Greg Combet announced that he would run for preselection in Charlton. He was installed over the top of the ALP branch members by the National Executive. Hoare said that she was the "sole bread winner" in her family and that she would have to sell her house if she lost the salary of an MP. She also claimed her lack of re-endorsement by the Labor Party was tantamount to "unfair dismissal."
