California State Treasurer Fiona Ma endorsed Orange County State Senator Dave Min for Congress in California’s 47th Congressional District. In just one week since announcing his campaign, Min has received the endorsement of over 50 local Orange County elected officials, the California Attorney General, ASPIRE PAC which represents 19 members of Congress, and Congresswoman Katie Porter who is vacating the 47th Congressional seat to run for U.S. Senate.
“I am proud to endorse Dave Min for Congress,” said California Treasurer Fiona Ma. “As an economic policy expert and former SEC attorney who has taken on Wall Street time and time again, Dave is uniquely well equipped to advocate for a strong and vibrant economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthiest. He’s fought tirelessly for the interests of our workers and our small businesses, including authoring a critical emergency financial assistance program for California’s small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. From standing up to corporate greed during the mortgage crisis, to fighting for California job creators on the Senate Banking committee, Dave has shown his resolve to preserve and protect the ladder of opportunity for all of us.”
Fiona Ma is California’s 34th State Treasurer. She is the first woman of color and the first woman Certified Public Accountant (CPA) elected to the position. California is the world’s fifth-largest economy and Treasurer Ma is a proven leader as the state’s primary banker. As Treasurer, her office worked quickly to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, offering resources to small businesses and expanding access to healthcare facilities. Her office processes more than $2 trillion in payments within a typical year and provides transparency and oversight for an investment portfolio of more than $90 billion, approximately $20 billion of which are local government funds. She also is responsible for $85 billion in outstanding general obligation and lease revenue bonds of the state.
Senator Min, the only Korean-American in the state legislature, has proven himself an incredibly effective legislative leader in the Senate, authoring 16 bills signed into law by the Governor, including leading legislation on hate crimes, gun violence prevention, family safety, and women’s reproductive rights. In the wake of the 2021 Huntington Beach Oil Spill, he stood up to the oil industry and led efforts to end offshore drilling. Min serves as Chair of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee and as Senate Vice Chair of the Asian and Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus. He previously chaired the Senate Cybersecurity Select Committee.
Before entering the State Senate, Min was a law professor at UC Irvine, where he taught and researched in the area of business law. He resides with his wife Jane, a UC Irvine law professor who specializes in domestic violence and family law, and their three children in Irvine. Dave is a native Californian, a product of California public schools who graduated from the Wharton School and Harvard Law School, and an Eagle Scout.
Let’s get as many Marxist Democrats elected to Congress. Way to go!
Yes. That way we can prosecute the traitorous Republicans that participated in the Jan-6 attack on the Capitol and Congress. There are still more of them to arrest, convict, and put in jail.
