Former GOP Assemblywoman Young Kim’s campaign has sent out a press release announcing she raised an impressive $120,000 at the March 31 kick-off of her campaign for the open 4th Supervisor District seat. According to the campaign press release:
The sold out kickoff event was headlined by guest speakers U.S. Representative Ed Royce and Supervisor Michelle Steel. In attendance were local elected officials, community leaders and individuals from in and around the 4th District.
“It’s a humbling feeling to know that you are supported by so many,” said Kim at the event. “This is a crowd of community leaders. They believe in getting things done and I’m proud to have them support my campaign. The attendees of this event have walked precincts, donated and made phone calls on my behalf before. I know I can count on them to do that again. That is what will make our campaign so strong. We have a grassroots campaign of volunteers that want to keep our community moving in the right direction.”
Kim also announced her candidacy’s endorsement by Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and District Attorney Tony Rackauckas:
In her endorsement Sheriff Hutchens stated, “I support Young Kim because she is a leader who is committed to serving the people. Young has always worked for the people of Orange County and she will work to make our community safer as Supervisor.”
Kim’s campaign is being run by Gilliard Blanning Associates, a long-time Sacramento-based political consulting firm with the winning-est record in Orange County.
