    Roseville Resident Starts Ride-Sharing Business

    Use Uber or Lyft? A Roseville resident has developed his own ride-sharing app. The Roseville Press Tribune reports

    A local man and former owner of Yellow Cab of Roseville has created a mobile app to compete with rideshare giants in the greater Sacramento area.

    App creator Francisco Rizet launched “Zride” July 1 on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, aiming to take on rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. Though founded just under seven years ago, Uber’s latest valuation suggests the company is worth $66 billion.

    All too often, California's small business owners are impeded by overregulation. Once elected, Kevin Kiley will stand with innovative entrepreneurs like Francisco. Here's more on Zride: 

    While also providing the best ride for consumers, Rizet said that by creating the app he hoped to help small business owners compete as a team. Zride currently boasts nearly 100 registered drivers.

    Passengers who hail a ride with Zride’s app can call any size vehicle at any time of the day, for $1 per mile. While other rideshare apps force consumers to agree to variable pricing throughout the day as the demand for rides rises and falls, Zride’s rate stays constant.

    Good luck, Francisco! You can read more about Kevin's plan for letting businesses thrive here.

    A Note about Yard Signs

    Just a quick note for those of you displaying yard signs. The general rule is that political signs should be taken down by Friday of this week. In most cases, signs can be re-displayed starting September 8 (two months before the November run-off).

    If you don't wish to put your yard sign into storage, you can call the campaign at 916-745-6284, and we'll send someone to retrieve it. (We'll be happy to return the sign in September, should you so desire.)

    Thanks for all your support, and onward to November!

    Kevin Kiley Strongly Opposed to High-Speed Rail and Twin Tunnels

    Don't be fooled by opponent's attack mail. Here's where Kevin stands:

    A former Deputy Attorney General, Kevin Kiley has long been an opponent of Governor Brown's controversial legacy projects. Earlier this year he told the Sacramento Bee that "the bullet train being pushed by Gov. Jerry Brown is a colossal waste of tax dollars. California needs to put resources into repairing our roads and highways, increasing water storage and other vital infrastructure projects."

    On the Twin Tunnels, Kiley said, "I cannot support a project that would use eminent domain to seize farms and cost upwards of $50 billion when it is all said and done while potentially damaging the Delta’s already-fragile ecosystem."

    Kevin Kiley is the frontrunner in the Sixth District Assembly Race. He is endorsed by former Governor Pete Wilson, the California Small Business Association, and the Republican Taxpayers' Association.
