Candidate, U.S. House California District 38
Greetings to all,
First and foremost, I want to thank God for allowing me the opportunity to serve the community that I love.
I am running for Congress because I believe that I was called to serve. As a Congressional member, I promise to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. With my 9 years of experience serving in local government, as well as my 30 years of experience managing a business, I believe that I am the best person to improve our congressional district.
In 2012, I was elected to serve as a member of the Walnut City Council. I was then re-elected in 2016 and 2020. In 2016-2017, I served as the Mayor and twice as the Mayor Pro Tempore. Before joining the City Council, I was the President of the Chinese American Association of Walnut, bringing attention to the Asian community and providing support for those in need. During my service on the Council, the City has maintained over 100% of reserves, was ranked the 17th safest city in California by Patch in 2017, and was voted 49th as the best city to live in by Money Magazine in 2013. While I cannot completely accredit these accomplishments to myself, we were able to build up this beautiful City due to the relationship between the City, residents, and public agencies.
Over the course of the last decade, I have dedicated my life to helping others through volunteer work. While volunteering at local churches and non-profit organizations, I have gained a passion for working with others and serving my community. During the Covid-19 pandemic, I was blessed with the opportunity to distribute food, supplies, and face masks to thousands of people, including seniors in the housing communities. As a mental health advocate, I have teamed up with a few of my friends to support those who have struggled with substance abuse. Through various treatment centers, we have been able to provide many resources to help victims get their lives back on track. As a frequent blood donor at the Red Cross and Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, I have learned to become more compassionate for others and to dedicate my life to serving the people.
Since the passing of my wife in 2017, I have been raising two beautiful girls who I am extremely proud of. Through these experiences, I was able to find my true meaning and purpose. I know that I need to use my energy, talents, and efforts to serve our country.
While we all may share different political, religious, or social views, we all have a common interest. Our goal is to provide safe neighborhoods, good jobs, and a place to comfortably grow old and raise our kids. We need leaders with proven results. Through my persistence and background, I believe that I am the best person to represent our district.
I am humbly asking for your support to continue to make our community a better place.
Once again, I will always put your interests first.
