Sukhee Kang, the carpetbagger from Irvine, is having a rough time in today’s primary election in the 29th State Senate District. He is dead last in the early ballot results, according to the O.C. Voter Registrar.
The leading candidate tonight, so far, in the 29th State Senate District, is Ling Ling Chang, a Republican State Assemblywoman, who has 22,490 votes. Continue reading
Two plaintiffs sued the City of Fullerton in late 2014 for allegedly violating the California Voting Rights Act. The plaintiffs claim the City’s at-large elections allegedly dilute the voting power of minority voters and/or prevent them from electing the candidate(s) of their choice. The City has entered into a settlement agreement with the plaintiffs to settle the litigation by placing a ballot measure before the voters in November 2016 to establish a district-based election system.

On September 15, 2015, the Fullerton City Council approved the Community Participation Plan in connection with formation of proposed city council district boundaries for a district elections ballot measure to present to the voters in November 2016.
The City has completed the first round of individual meetings with Compass Demographics.
The next step in the Community Participation Plan is to hold four community meetings throughout the City to gather citizen input on the mapping process on a larger scale in a workshop setting.
Dates, times and locations for the four Community Meetings are as follows: Continue reading
I suppose this was bound to happen sooner or later. Carpetbagging State Senate candidate Sukhee Kang, has been spoofed in a new website, Sukhee Kang Watch.
Kang teamed up with his fellow Democrats on the Irvine City Council, Larry Agran and Beth Krom, for years as they fleeced the taxpayers while blowing millions of dollars on consultants instead of building the Great Park. Once the Agranistas lost power in Irvine Kang went looking for a new population to rip off – and he landed in Fullerton.
Here is an excerpt from the entertaining anti-Kang website: Continue reading
It looks like local Democrats in the 55th Assembly District are not happy with the party leaders who recruited a carpetbagger, former Irvine Councilman Sukhee Kang, to run for Bob Huff’s seat in the 29th State Senate District.
A Democrat in Fullerton named Josh Newman is considering running against Kang for Huff’s seat. Josh Newman, is an Army veteran and he is the founder and executive director of ArmedForce2WorkForce.org, a non-profit that helps vets find work. He is also the vice president of the Democrats of North Orange County and is active with the state Democratic party, according to the O.C. Register.
Kang is however damaged goods in the wake of the brutal Great Park audit which shows that Kang, and his Democratic colleagues on the Irvine City Council, Larry Agran and Beth Krom, screwed the taxpayers by wasting millions of dollars that should have been used to develop the Great Park but were instead used to pay off lobbyists and PR hacks.

Assemblywoman Kim Issues Statement Opposing Bill That Would Increase City Vulnerability to Litigation Over Council Election Process
SACRAMENTO – Today I voted against AB 277 in the State Assembly. The legislation seeks to increase the number of cities that can be sued over their city council elections; lawsuits like Paik v. City of Fullerton. I support the transition to district elections as a way to increase representation of minority communities, but lawsuits like this can have the unwanted effect of undermining race relations.
This lawsuit filed by the ACLU is not reflective of the attitudes of the city’s Korean community at large. I am a proud resident of the city of Fullerton, all four of my children attended public schools in Fullerton, and as a first-time Korean American candidate running against an incumbent, I received over 56% of the vote in Fullerton.
