Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the Sixth District in the California State Assembly. His parents arrived in the area in 1982, his father a physician and his mother a special education teacher. They settled in Orangevale and then Granite Bay, where they raised Kevin and his three siblings with the values of hard work, faith, and fidelity to family and community.
After graduating from Harvard, Kevin followed in his mother’s footsteps to become a teacher. He taught 10th-grade English at a high school in South Central Los Angeles, where he chaired the English department and led his students to significant academic gains. Wanting to give his students the same opportunity he had at Granite Bay High School, Kevin also started an award-winning speech and debate team. Dozens of students found their voice through the program, competing in top tournaments throughout the state and graduating to some of California’s best universities.
Kevin went on to Yale Law School. He passed the California bar and joined Irell & Manella, where he represented individuals and businesses in high stakes litigation. Later, as a Deputy Attorney General, Kevin represented the People of California in cases involving convicted felons.
Elected to the California State Assembly in 2016, Kevin has won statewide acclaim for his legislation to expand parental choice for underserved students, ensure impartial descriptions of ballot initiatives, and end the practice of government double taxation. He serves as Vice Chair of the Assembly Education Committee and of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, and is a member of the Public Safety Committee, Governmental Organization Committee, Judiciary Committee, and Higher Education Committee.
