I’m a public servant, mother, and proven tax-fighter who has spent my career creating jobs, holding a failed government system accountable, and ensuring it always works for the people it serves.
As a young adult, I came to America with my mother and two younger sisters from South Korea. Like so many before me and many more after me, my family came to America searching for opportunities with the hope for a better future.
After watching my single working mother struggle to fight an unwarranted tax bill from the California State Board of Equalization, I realized that, however well-intended, government was failing the people that needed it most.
I knew I needed to serve my community, so I decided to run for public office.
I successfully ran for the California State Board of Equalization, the very agency that showed me how broken our political system is, and I quickly worked to make much needed, common-sense reforms.
Currently, I serve as the Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, where I have fought against higher taxes, helped guide our county through COVID-19, and provided support for vulnerable communities. During my time in public office, I have returned over $400 million to California taxpayers and have focused on fixing a broken tax system that is holding families and businesses back.
Now, I am running for Congress because our political system is broken; partisan gridlock is hurting Americans and we deserve better.
I have a proven track record of creating local results, working across the aisle, and putting people before politics.
In Congress, I will fight to lower taxes and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money, especially during these uncertain times. I will continue the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19, protect Orange County residents, and increase hospital resources. I will also work to fix our broken healthcare system to cover those with pre-existing conditions, lower prescription drug prices, and ensure Americans have access to quality, affordable healthcare.
Orange County needs a new voice in Washington, D.C.; a voice that will fight for this community. I have been blessed to live my American Dream and that is why I am running for Congress. Together, we can ensure future generations have hope for a better future and opportunities to prosper.
