Christian Daily: Executive Director of Korean American Coalition Running for LA City Council

Grace YooThere are currently no Asian Americans  on the 15 member Los Angeles City Council.

Grace Yoo hopes to change that. Yoo has resigned as executive director of the Korean American Coalition to run for city council, reports the Christian Daily.

Yoo will run in district 10 and is one of two Korean Americans who have entered the race. The other is David Ryu in District 4.

Yoo has been active speaking for keeping Koreatown in one congressional district and state assembly and senate district so as not to split up the Korean American vote. She also helped to create the new Los Angeles Police Department’s Olympic Community Police Station in Koreatown and has launched youth leadership and mentor programs.
