Since joining the legislature, Kiley served on the committee that reviews all education legislation before it receives a full vote by the state Assembly.
Kiley, who has spoken out against state-wide mandates in K–12 schools regarding COVID-19 and critical race theory (CRT), was taken by surprise when he received the announcement on Dec. 27.
State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon removed Kiley with “no official reason given” to him, Kiley told The Epoch Times.
“Without any notification or any warning, I was taken off this committee that I’ve been on for all my five years in the legislature.”
However, a spokesperson from Rendon’s office claimed his removal was not targeted.
“The Speaker makes regular changes to the makeup of Assembly committees,” spokeswoman Katie Talbot told The Epoch Times in an email. “This change was one of more than 20 changes made to committees that day – none of which were retaliatory.”
Still, the Assemblyman speculates his tendency to speak out against education throughout the state is the cause of his removal.
“I’ve been an outspoken critic of the corrupt education policies of Gavin Newsom in our legislature,” Kiley said. “I’ve taken a long-standing critic of the failure to serve our students.”
During his time on the education committee, Kiley advocated and attempted to introduce legislation to open schools amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“All of that did not go over well with the leaders of the legislator and the governor,” Kiley said.
Kiley also pushed for school choice and made efforts to put the needs of students first, he said.
“I have actively questioned authors who bring bills to our committee that are not in the interest of students,” Kiley said. “I made them justify their bills. I asked them tough questions.”
With Kiley being off the committee, he said he fears questionable education legislation will be passed without a second thought.
Although Kiley’s time as vice chair has come to an end, he said he anticipates using his position as a member of the legislature to continue to speak out against the K–12 CRT curriculum, COVID-19 mandates, sexual education curriculum, and potential attempts to close schools again.
“This attempted retaliation is only going to make me more vocal in trying to get our state on the right course,” Kiley said.
Assemblywoman Megan Dahle (R-Bieber)of California’s first district, serving a portion of Northern California counties, has assumed the role of vice chair of the Education Committee.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
