NPR: Asian-American Politicians Flourish in Santa Clara County

I listened to this piece on National Public Radio on “Asian-American Politicians Flourishing in Santa Clara. It’s great to hear about how Asian-Americans are taking leadership roles in politics in Santa Clara county – there are five Asian-American mayors in this county. Traditionally, Asian-Americans have not been all that active in politics. In 2004, when I volunteered for the Kerry campaign, I rarely saw any Asian-Americans volunteering or going to fund raisers – and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area! I was born-and-raised in Western Massachusetts where there were barely any Asians/Asian-Americans, so that would be expected. But in California? Come on!

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
