Santa Ana, CA – Mayor Bao Nguyen, who is running for US House of Representatives in California’s 46th Congressional District, has been selected as a delegate at the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia. Nguyen has been chosen as a pledged Party Leader and Elected Official (PLEO) delegate to support Bernie Sanders at the convention.
Mayor Nguyen is the only congressional candidate in Orange County to endorse Senator Sanders. “Bernie Sanders represents everything I want to work toward in Congress: building a strong middle class, reducing income inequality, and expanding access to public education and healthcare.” Nguyen added, “Every family deserves a chance for success. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to taking on special interests and the one percent, and standing up for equality and justice for everybody.”
The Democratic National Convention will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia July 25th-28th, 2016.
Born in a UN refugee camp, Bao and his parents immigrated to the United States to escape oppression in Communist Vietnam. Bao was elected Mayor of Garden Grove in 2014. Upon his swearing-in, he became the city’s first Vietnamese American and first Openly LGBTQ Mayor. He is also the first directly- elected Vietnamese American Democratic Mayor in the United States. Prior to his historic election, he served as a member of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education.
