A coalition of Asian and Pacific Islander (API) Commissioners and leaders* announced their support of Supervisor Jane Kim’s campaign for mayor at an event in front of the Chinatown Branch Library. Kim was joined by Allan Low, Recreation and Park Commissioner; Douglas Chan, Civil Services Commissioner; Eddy Zheng, Southeast Community Facility Commissioner; Gorretti Lo Lui, War Memorial Trustee; and Ding Lee, Lee Family Association.
“We need a mayor who will listen to our communities. Jane has been a great advocate for the city’s open spaces, parks and recreation facilities, and has always been an advocate for access and equity. She will bring us together as one city and provide opportunities for all of us to live in the city,” said Allan Low. “From her days as a youth organizer with Chinatown Community Development Center to today, she has always been there for the community.”
“I am truly honored to have the support of these API Commissioners and leaders as I continue my fight to build a city that works for all of us,” said Kim. “We all want a better San Francisco, and I’m proud to stand with so many community leaders and to have earned their support.”
The Commissioners join many API community leaders and organizations who have endorsed Jane Kim for Mayor including the Community Tenants Association; Gordon Chin, Founder of the Chinatown Community Development Center; Anni Chung, Executive Director of Self-Help for the Elderly; Supervisor Sandra Fewer; former Supervisor Eric Mar; Frank Fung, San Francisco Board of Appeals President; Darryl Honda, Board of Appeals Commissioner; Paul Osaki, Executive Director of Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California; and Ben Wong, Executive Director of Wah Mei School.
