Jay Chen Kicks Off General Election in Rowland Heights
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rowland Heights, Calif., July 27, 2012 – With three months left until the November general election, Democratic challenger and local small businessman Jay Chen will kick off the final leg of a hard-fought congressional campaign at his New Capital Restaurant fundraiser this Friday.
The fundraiser’s program will include remarks from State Controller John Chiang and Congresswoman Judy Chu, as well as music and cultural performers.
Local elected officials, including Walnut Valley Councilman Eric Ching, California State Senator Ed Hernandez, Walnut Valley Water Board Member Scarlett Kwong, and Hacienda La Puente School Board President Joseph Chang, will also be present to show their support for Chen and his race against Republican incumbent Ed Royce. Over three hundred guests are expected to attend, and the raised funds will go to reaching out to the almost 400,000 voters of the district.
Congresswoman Chu and State Controller Chiang will be speaking in support of Chen as one of the few Asian-Americans running for Congress and about his candidacy in the newly redrawn 39th district.
In addition, Chen will address Chinese-American relations and how he plans to bring more jobs to America. Chen’s plan to stimulate the economy involves providing tax credits to companies that bring jobs and earnings back into the United States.
