Assemblyman Kevin Kiley
"Protecting our area's water resources, managing our forests, and stopping any additional tax increases will be among my highest priorities, as well as advancing legislation that improves public safety."

Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the Sixth District in the California State Assembly. His parents arrived in the area in 1982, his father a physician and his mother a special education teacher. They settled in Orangevale and then Granite Bay, where they raised Kevin and his three siblings with the values of hard work, faith, and fidelity to family and community.

After graduating from Harvard, Kevin followed in his mother's footsteps to become a teacher. He taught 10th-grade English at a high school in South Central Los Angeles, where he chaired the English department and led his students to significant academic gains. Wanting to give his students the same opportunity he had at Granite Bay High School, Kevin also started an award-winning speech and debate team. Dozens of students found their voice through the program, competing in top tournaments throughout the state and graduating to some of California's best universities.

Kevin went on to Yale Law School. He passed the California bar and joined Irell & Manella, where he represented individuals and businesses in high stakes litigation. Later, as a Deputy Attorney General, Kevin represented the People of California in cases involving convicted felons. Kevin and his business partner, former U.S. Congressman Doug Ose, own and operate Ose-Kiley Cattle.

Elected to the California State Assembly in 2016, Kevin has won statewide acclaim for his legislation to expand parental choice for underserved students, ensure impartial descriptions of ballot initiatives, and end the practice of government double taxation. He serves as Vice Chair of the Assembly Education Committee and of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, and is a member of the Public Safety Committee, Governmental Organization Committee, Judiciary Committee, and Higher Education Committee.

Dilenna Harris

As a child, there were two things the daughter of Master Sergeant Dan and Barbara Hughes knew for sure – First, service would always be a part of her life. Second, Vacaville would always be home.

Today, Dilenna Harris continues her commitment to service on the Vacaville City Council and through the numerous non-profit organizations that have benefitted from her leadership through the years. From promoting economic development as Chair of the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce, to protecting veterans and Travis Air Force Base as Chair of the Travis Regional Armed Forces Committee, there’s no doubt about Dilenna’s service to her hometown.

As an entrepreneur, Dilenna blazed new trails for women in the construction industry, creating good local jobs and becoming one of the first women to earn the prestigious designation of Western Regional Master Builder Designation. As a non-profit executive, Dilenna created and instituted development programs for a respected education system and repeated her successes at the Solano County Library Foundation. Eventually, Dilenna was recruited by a major regional health care system to lead their efforts in community involvement.

As a City Councilmember, Dilenna tackles issues head-on. She’s pushed for fiscal responsibility while protecting services, for crime prevention and for new economic development – new jobs for our workforce. As a member of the Council during one of the nation’s worst recessions, Dilenna helped the City weather the storm while continuing to provide much needed services.

Through her work, volunteer service and public service on the City Council, Dilenna continues to promote life-long learning and literacy for young people. She’s building partnerships between business, non-profits and government agencies to share resources and boost the value of every penny of tax dollars. She was recently recognized for her work as Woman of the Year in the 3rd Congressional District.

Dilenna and her husband, Rob, a 37-year member of IBEW, raised three children here in Vacaville, and are enjoying life as grandparents to their seven grandchildren.
