On November 8, 2016, California State Assemblyman Kevin Kiley was elected to represent the 6th Assembly District, which includes Placer, Sacramento, and El Dorado counties. He serves as Vice-Chair of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, and is a member of the Education, Higher Education, Judiciary, and Governmental Organization committees.
Before being elected to the State Assembly, Kevin represented the People of California as a Deputy Attorney General in cases involving convicted felons. He has taken this commitment to the safety of Californians to the Legislature, where soon after taking office he authored bills to strengthen penalties for child molestation and other violent crimes.
Earlier in his career, Kevin taught tenth-grade English at an inner city public high school, where he chaired the English department and led his students to significant academic gains. The son of a special education teacher, Kevin is working to advance educational opportunity for all Californians, with measures to expand school choice and access to vocational training.
Kevin was born and raised in the communities of the Sixth Assembly District, and graduated as valedictorian of Granite Bay High School’s fifth graduating class. He earned 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 of Law at University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.
