I’m a public servant, mother, and proven tax-fighter, and one of the first Korean-American women ever to serve in Congress working to create jobs, hold the government accountable, and ensure it always works for the people it serves.
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.
After watching my single working mother struggle to fight an unwarranted tax bill from the California State Board of Equalization, I realized that, however well-intended, the government was failing the people that needed it most.
I knew I needed to serve my community, so I decided to run for public office.
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.
When I served as the Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, I fought against higher taxes, helped guide our county through COVID-19, and provided support for vulnerable communities. During my time in public office, I have returned over $400 million to California taxpayers and have focused on fixing a broken tax system that is holding families and businesses back.
Now I am in Congress fixing our broken political system and fighting through partisan gridlock that is hurting Americans and we deserve better.
In Congress, I am fighting to lower taxes and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money, especially during these uncertain times. I am working to finally put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and restore our way of life to what it once was. I am also working to fix our broken healthcare system to cover those with pre-existing conditions, lower prescription drug prices, and ensure Americans have access to quality, affordable healthcare.
Today more than ever before, we need true leadership in Washington, D.C. I am a voice that will relentlessly fight for my community. I have been blessed to live my American Dream and that is why I am proud to serve this community in Congress. Together, we can ensure future generations have hope for a better future and opportunities to prosper.
