State Assembly

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Assembly races on your ballot.

Representative, District 02

State Representative

  • Democrat
  • Mark Kiley is running to unseat Assemblyman Shae Sortwell. Although Kiley has not taken as many explicit or specific stances as some other candidates, he is concerned about groundwater, supports renewable energy, intends to fully fund public education, and believes infrastructure investments are needed. Sortwell is extremely conservative and has flouted expert opinions on the coronavirus. His radical ideology extends to his professional comportment. In one notable incident, Sortwell displayed his gun to a Democratic legislative aide in another legislator's office, where guns were not permitted. Kiley is the more progressive choice.
