By Assemblyman Kevin Kiley – June 4, 2022
Sac City Unified, one of the worst districts in America, has reimposed a mask mandate. This will not happen in any area that I represent.
The announcement came amidst a bizarre week. My last post discussed the key events from Wednesday, but I haven’t told you about Tuesday. That’s when the attempt to topple the Speaker of the Assembly failed in slow motion.
Shortly after we convened on the Assembly Floor, the Speaker’s allies tried to adjourn the session before he could be ousted. That motion failed, and then the allies of the usurper asked for a “caucus,” where Democrats and Republicans meet in separate rooms outside of public view.
So the Democrats took their family feud behind closed doors, while our much smaller caucus was forced to sit around and wait for six hours. In the end, the Speaker managed to fend off the coup and remain in power – for now.
Just as all this was ending, I left for the KCRA studio for a debate in the race for Congress. You can watch my closing statement here.
As I took the debate stage, the day was a reminder of how dysfunctional our government is. California is being ruined by radical, inept politicians – and now, the same is happening to our country. We cannot let it happen.
