By Assemblyman Kevin Kiley – December 22, 2021
Two months ago, I sent a clear message to the state’s large school districts:
Under California law school districts cannot mandate the COVID vaccine without a personal belief exemption. Don’t try it. You will get sued and will lose.
Well, San Diego Unified tried it. They got sued. And they just lost. A Superior Court has struck down the district’s mandate in its entirety. This comes a week after LA Unified cancelled theirs for next semester.
This also comes as Joe Biden admits the science is “overwhelming” that “schools should be open.” I told Newsom that a year and a half ago. But he ignored the science, obeyed the unions, and pocketed millions.
Meanwhile, yesterday Newsom announced the first “booster mandate.” This has to be a new world record for the time between conspiracy theory and reality.
The word endemic describes a pathogen being around indefinitely. What’s truly become endemic is the insanity this virus has spawned. One of Newsom’s big union funders just declared “there’s never a good time to start disarming against COVID-19.”
My home school district, for one, disagrees. Rocklin Unified passed a resolution against Newsom’s mandates that promises legal action if he extends the emergency. The forces of sanity are gaining strength.
