That’s what S.J. Jung hopes for in his race against State Sen. Toby Stavisky in Queens (D-NY), reports the NY Daily News (pictured back row 3rd from left).
Stavisky represents a district in which 40 percent of the voters are Asian American.
Jung is quick to point out his campaign is more than about his racial identity.
“I’m running as a reformer, who refuses to accept politics as usual, and as a longtime community advocate who will bring vibrant leadership and a long-term vision to this district,” he said.
Jung is former president of the MinKwon Center for Community Action, a grassroots advocacy group in the Korean American community.
