    We had a meeting around bicycling and living streets with both candidates, and surprisingly not knowing anything about him after the talk everybody totally liked him. And then he said right thing about Armenians, and I even talked with him, glad that ANCA thinks he will be good for community too. Let’s make it happen!

    John Choi should win the seat for City Council District 13. We need more diversity in City Hall and both Armenian and Korean American communities that reside in this district need leadership that will represent, address their issues and help both communities as well as all other communities; further mobilize, be well educated, safe, and feel their voice heard among the majority. Many politicians talk a lot, but a representative that can both set a good example and also push for communities whose voices are unheard is what this district needs.
