Young Kim holds first fundraiser since pandemic

With the state’s tracking system showing Orange County making enough progress against the coronavirus, the county moved to the less-restrictive red tier. This allowed Buena Park resident Gale Stoddard, known as the voice of the Filipinos, to hold a fundraising garden party for Young Kim on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. Stoddard’s colorful backyard offered a festive setting for guests to talk to Kim one on one about issues affecting the 39th U.S. Congressional District. Later in the event, Kim shared her unique perspective on the American Dream. A legal immigrant from South Korea, she has devoted her life to public service and giving back to her community.

“Like Young Kim, I am a legal immigrant,” said Stoddard following the successful event. “I am from the Philippines and share Young’s love for America and all this wonderful country offers its citizens.”

Nancy Hathcock, president of West Orange County Republican Women Federated was at the event. “Our club has members in the 39th district and have known Young Kim for many years. From her time working in Congressman Ed Royce’s office to being state assemblywoman, Young Kim has always done an outstanding job for the people she represents, and we know she will be an exceptional congresswoman in D.C.”

Current co-Secretary of Fullerton Republican Women Federated Gretchen Cox added, “I support Young Kim because I believe her leadership history proves her to be someone interested in making her district a better place with better opportunities. She has proven she can bring people together and will also work to bring people together in Congress, while supporting our core values.” Cox pointed out that Kim’s opponent is locked into supporting a divisive, progressive agenda and has lied to voters about his intentions all along the way.

Other guests included Anaheim Republican Assembly President Robert Walters and members and Vietnamese businessowner Hahn Le. Le has organized Asian support for President Trump (and received a commendation from the president for his work with Vietnamese voters). As a special surprise, Le brought his popular Dahmri Vietnamese coffee to guests at the event.

Entertainment included the band “Cause for Concern” as well as solos by Gale Stoddard singing at the keyboard.

  1. Why does this photo show six people, who I assume are from separate households, not wearing a mask when they’re clearly within 6 feet of each other?

    Yes, Orange County is in the red tier, but this behavior is what will put us in back in purple. A red tier doesn’t mean you can have public gatherings and it doesn’t mean you should have close contact with others outside your household without a mask on, even if it’s outdoors.

    Also, I’m a Filipino who lives in Buena Park and Gale Stoddard does not speak for me, especially after seeing this photo.

  2. Young Kim exploited Korean immigrants to make her wealth. She also broke election campaign law in 2018 when her campaign reached out to me after the voting to get me to change my online opinions directly.

    She clearly knows how to game the system.
