As we look ahead and work to unify our Party, I am reminded of the importance of former DNC Chair, Gov. Howard Dean and the 50-state strategy in our victories under his leadership. In 2006, I had the privilege of meeting with him for the inaugural AAPI Democratic Leadership Summit in San Jose. We glimpsed the Party infrastructure investment that was integral to Gov. Dean’s 50-state strategy.
Now we must return to full-time leadership at the DNC. We have too much at stake. I am running for a four-year term on the Democratic National Committee with my primary goal as implementing Gov. Dean’s 50-state strategy. I ask you to support me in this election, Saturday, June 18, in Long Beach, CA.
“We cannot give up on anybody.”
