I’m a public servant, mother, and proven tax-fighter working in Congress to make a difference and help those in need.
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.
I first became interested in public service at an early age when I watched my single working mother struggle to fight an unwarranted tax bill from the California State Board of Equalization. As an immigrant who owned a small business, my mother lacked the resources she needed to appeal to the state agency and reluctantly acquiesced to the board’s demands.
After watching my own mother struggle, I knew I needed to help those who couldn’t help themselves and be a strong voice for the voiceless. I knew I needed to serve my community, so I decided to run for public office.
WHAT I STAND FOR
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.
In 2020, I ran for Congress because working class families needed a champion in Washington, D.C. Now in Congress, I have honored the promises I made and have stood up for my constituents and our common values. I will continue to be that voice, and fight to serve our community each and every day in Washington.
In Congress, I have fought each and every attempt to raise taxes. I have worked tirelessly to push back against reckless spending policies that are driving nationwide inflation from Washington and I have been committed to standing up to Communist China and standing with our democratic allies abroad.
Now, I’m running for reelection in 2024 to continue this fight. Americans deserve a government that is always looking out for their best interests, and advocating for policies that will make life easier and more affordable – not more expensive and more restricted. I’m a true conservative that believes the best way to grow our economy is by supporting small businesses and working people, and I’ll never back down from that belief.
