Chris Phan, a newly elected Councilman for the city of Garden Grove, had a unique way to celebrate being sworn in – making a very public wedding proposal to his girlfriend Cindy Pham! According to this interview, he checked first with the City Clerk and the City Attorney to make sure that there were no rules and laws that would prohibit him from proposing. Pham and Phan first met three years ago.
Phan has a long history of public service. He served in Iraq, was a Judge Advocate General (JAG) in the Navy, and still serves in the Navy Reserve as a Lieutenant Commander. Cindy Pham is the sister of one of his military friends. Phan was recently named a Deputy District Attorney in Orange County.
