By Assemblyman Kevin Kiley – February 25, 2022
Two weeks ago, when Newsom extended the school mask mandate, I wrote it would be “widely ignored” throughout California. That’s exactly what has happened.
I’m proud my hometown has led the way, with Roseville Joint Union High School District passing a mask choice Resolution. Dozens of districts have now followed.
History will record that Newsom’s one-man rule was ended not by the courts or the legislature, but by the people. We simply stopped listening to him.
One teachers union has responded with a strike that’s shut down a high school the last two days. In a fit of lunacy, the union president said if students don’t have to wear masks, he shouldn’t “have to wear a shirt.”
This was in Nevada County, one of ten counties I’ll represent if elected to Congress. I’ve put out an official statement denouncing the strike. In short, corrupt unions have seized every opportunity to abandon kids.
Meanwhile, gas prices have hit another record high. The state claims to have a $60 billion “surplus,” so there is no reason we can’t suspend the gas tax. My bill, AB 1638, would save Californians 50 cents a gallon.
And a city audit found LA spends $837,000 to house one homeless person. Perhaps this is why Newsom has done everything he can to block my statewide audit.
