Today Kevin Kiley was recognized as a Trailblazer by California Trailblazers, an organization committed to identifying and training the next generation of Republican leaders. See the press release below:
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California Trailblazers, a program with a track record of successfully recruiting, training, and helping to elect the next generation of Republican leaders, today announced its board of directors classified Kevin Kiley (AD - 6) as a ‘Trailblazer,’ the third tier and highest distinction in the program.
“Kiley has continued to prove himself on the campaign trail,” said Trailblazers CEO Jessica Patterson. “Through strong fundraising efforts and a robust volunteer program, Kiley continues to engage the sixth Assembly district through positive education about conservative issues that matter to the local community.”
To become 'Trailblazers,' candidates must meet rigorous campaign metrics established by the program. ‘Trailblazers’ have raised more than $400,000, without loans or personal funds, and identified a clear path to victory in their districts. In addition, these candidates have also created and are executing strong media, fundraising, social media, coalition, finance and Get Out The Vote plans, and have participated in Trailblazers trainings to learn sophisticated campaign strategies and tactics.
Kiley is a former Deputy Attorney General who represented the state of California. Prior to serving as Deputy Attorney General, he taught 10th grade English at a South Central Los Angeles high school, devoting himself to education and leading an award-winning speech and debate team. Kiley earned a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, a law degree from Yale, and a master’s in secondary education from Loyola Marymount. He has served as an Adjunct Professor of Law at University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. Previously, Kiley worked for Irell & Manella, where he represented individuals and businesses in high stakes litigation.
“Kiley is a tremendous example of the leaders California Trailblazers aims to elect to office and represents the next generation of Republican leaders who are engaged, enthusiastic and equipped with the experience and knowledge to win elections and lead from day one,” said Trailblazers CEO Jessica Patterson.
Until the November 8 election, California Trailblazers will continue to provide support to Republican legislative candidates to ensure they are positioned to win.
California Trailblazers aims to recruit and train Republican candidates who reflect California’s diverse population. The program is modeled after the National Republican Congressional Committee’s successful Young Guns program. For more information, please visit www.catrailblazers.com. Follow @CaTrailblazers.

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.

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!
