Young Kim Raises $150,000 at First Event
FULLERTON, CA – – Republican Young Kim, still “testing the waters” in the 65thAssembly district, is finding them to be very inviting. Kim raised $150,000 at her first event, held last Thursday evening in Buena Park.
“I have said all along that I will let the community decide whether I should formally enter this race and so far the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Kim. “There is clearly a desire to replace the incumbent with a representative who better reflects the values and understands the needs of our district.”
Young Kim is a long time community leader in North Orange County. Young and her husband Charles Kim reside in Fullerton and have four children who attended or currently attend Fullerton’s public schools. Kim is a key advisor to U.S. Rep. Ed Royce and a former TV talk show host and radio commentator.
“The people of our district understand that the Legislature is not working for them and not focused on the important issues,” said Kim. “There is something very wrong in Sacramento when the State Assembly wastes time debating and passing bills to force public schools to have unisex bathrooms, instead of focusing on important issues like improving education quality, helping businesses grow and create jobs, and keeping us safe.”
The 65th district includes all or part of the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, La Palma, Fullerton, and Stanton. It has traditionally elected Republican representatives, until 2012 when the current incumbent, Sharon Quirk-Silva, defeated former Assemblyman Chris Norby.
