He was honored as Grand Marshall of Philadelphia Pride in 2005. He is a David Bohnett Fellow and graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School’s Senior Executives in State and Local Government program.  
Kevin was recruited to run for the Buckeye Union School District which currently has no Democratic representation. El Dorado County which is in the rolling foothills of the Sierras, just outside of Sacramento has seen an influx of more progressive Bay Area and Southern California residents. Until now, no school board in this county has every had an out LGBTQ member. Already a trailblazer, Kevin is doing it again in this congressional district won in 2016 by Hillary Clinton.
