“These, by far have been the most enjoyable and informative experiences of this entire campaign. We have already attended several “Coffee Hour’s” and have more coming. I really look forward to these,” said Robert Lee Ahn, Congressional Candidate in the race to replace Xavier Beccera in the 34th District. Following his “Coffee Hour” that took place at the home of Jennifer Levin and John Eisendrath in Hancock Park last Saturday afternoon, Ahn reflected on the latest in a series of events taking place throughout the district. Immigration, healthcare, the environment and the Trump Administration top the list of issues being discussed at these informal “get-togethers” that are taking place in every corner of the district. “It’s retail politics, shaking peoples hands and looking them in the eye and letting them know where I stand on the issues and hearing the issues that they want me to prioritize. People are tired of politics as usual. They want someone who can help clean up the mess in Washington and who isn’t beholden to special interests. They want a leader. Someone who can be effective on day 1. I am that candidate,” concluded Ahn.
The next “Coffee Hour” is at the popular Zweet Café in Eagle Rock on Tuesday, March 20th, hosted by none other than the candidate’s own sister, Christine Cho, who also resides in the 34th District. “I am so proud of him. He’s always been someone who looks out for others. He has always been someone who tries to make things better for people, always trying to help,” said Cho. “Growing up, Bobby always looked out for me. He is a great big brother and I know he will make a great congressman. I’m excited about this opportunity to introduce him to my friends and neighbors. I hope lots of people come and hear from Bobby and learn what I already know, that he’s the best choice for Congress,” concluded Cho.
The 34th District represents all of Koreatown, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, as well as all or parts of Historic Filipinotown, Hollywood, Hancock Park, Downtown, Eagle Rock, Boyle Heights, City Terrace, Echo Park, El Sereno, Glassell Park, Highland Park, Lincoln Heights, Mt. Washington, Montecito Heights, and Westlake/Pico Union.
Robert Lee Ahn, if elected, would be the ONLY Korean American to hold a seat in the United States Congress. This would be historic.
