Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Terminar con la era de la corrupción en California y restablecer la integridad en el gobierno estatal.
  • Terminar con el estado de emergencia y devolver el poder a las comunidades locales.
  • Convocar a una sesión especial de la legislatura para tratar el tema de las escuelas con deficiencias, el creciente costo de vida, el aumento de las tasas de delitos y el incremento en la falta de vivienda.



Kevin Kiley was elected to the California State Assembly in 2016 and has twice been reelected by substantial margins. In the 2020 election, he received more votes than any Republican in California history. Kevin is the only 100 percent citizen-backed California elected official, refusing all funding from the Special Interests that have spent tens of millions electing Gavin Newsom.

The son of a Special Education teacher, Kevin began his career as a high school teacher in inner-city Los Angeles, where he chaired the English Department and led his students to significant academic gains.

Later as an attorney, Kevin defended the U.S. Constitution in California courts and helped prosecute the civil case against China’s Huawei Technologies for intellectual property theft. He left private practice to become a prosecutor and Deputy Attorney General, representing the People of California in cases against violent felons. In November of 2020, Kevin and fellow legislator James Gallagher made use of their legal training by winning a trial against Governor Newsom for violating the separation of powers.

In five years in the Legislature, Kevin has authored groundbreaking new laws on freedom of speech, artificial intelligence, privacy, criminal justice reform, and protections for sexual assault victims, along with introducing the most significant school choice legislation in recent years. For his work advancing economic freedom, in 2020 he was named the national Legislator of the Year by the Association of Independent Workers.

Each year in the Legislature, Kevin has declined the per diem allowance, giving up $40,000 in income annually. He also declined a pay raise granted to the Governor and Legislature in 2021, and he has introduced legislation to end special perks like a private DMV office that is available exclusively to state lawmakers and their staff.

Kevin holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard, a law degree from Yale, and a master’s in secondary education from Loyola Marymount. He has also served as an adjunct professor at McGeorge School of Law.

Filosofía política

California used to be the state where anyone could get ahead. It’s now the state many can’t wait to leave behind. For the sake of the state we love, I’m asking voters to take a chance on change.

Five years ago, I ran for the Legislature as an outsider. I had taught high school in inner-city Los Angeles, prosecuted cases against violent felons, and defended the Constitution in our courts.

Since taking office, I’ve fought to root out corruption at the State Capitol. I’m the only lawmaker who refuses all special interest funding. I’ve declined the annual $40,000 allowance and turned down a pay raise. I’ve acted to end perks like a private DMV office for legislators.

I’ve authored groundbreaking legislation on freedom of speech, public safety, school choice, criminal justice reform, and artificial intelligence.

Yet I’ve also seen that our state government is fundamentally broken. Our Capitol is rife with corruption. Our political leaders serve special interests rather than the public interest.

It’s why we pay the highest gas taxes while driving over the deepest potholes. It’s why we spend billions more on homelessness as the problem gets worse. In California, we sacrifice the most and get the least in return.

The people of California deserve better. If elected, I will immediately call a Special Session of the Legislature to address our failing schools, soaring cost of living, rising crime rates, and jarring homelessness.

It’s time to get back to basics and restore integrity to state government.
