I’m a public servant, mother, and proven tax-fighter working in Congress to create jobs, hold government accountable, and ensure 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.
When I served as the Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, I 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 in Congress fixing our broken political system and fighting through partisan gridlock that is hurting Americans and we deserve better.
In Congress, I am fighting to lower taxes and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money, especially during these uncertain times. I am working to slow the spread of COVID-19, protect Orange County residents, and increase hospital resources. I am also working 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 true leadership 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 proud to serve this community in Congress. Together, we can ensure future generations have hope for a better future and opportunities to prosper.
