Despite rumors to the contrary the Vietnamese American Democratic ClubÃ‚Â is endorsing the candidacy of Hoa Van Tran for the First District seat on the Board of Supervisors.Ã‚Â The VADC joins the Orange County Young DemocratsÃ‚Â in their support for Hoa, the lone Democrat in the race, as he battles Republican’s Janet and Dina Nguyen.Ã‚Â The Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed anyone in the race as of yet.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
I met with Trung Ta, President of the VADC and a member DPOC Central Committee, a few weeks ago in Little Saigon and heÃ‚Â assured me that he and his group enthusiastically support Hoa’s campaign.Ã‚Â Mr. Ta and others from his organization are active in the campaign.Ã‚Â
If the rumors being circulated by some local Dems, including those with close ties to Janet, are true and Hoa is actually a “Trannie” running a stealth campaign to help Dina, are they ready to admit that Assemblyman Van Tran has actually managed to infiltrate the DPOC Central Committee?Ã‚Â The accusations against Hoa and his campaign must certainly apply to Trung Ta as well, right?
Come on folks lets stop playing “Oliver Stone” and leave the conspiracy theories to others in the blogosphere.Ã‚Â The time for the Democratic Party to make inroads into the Vietnamese community is now.Ã‚Â The Reeps have a big head start on us but we cannot afford to simply concede the Vietnamese vote to them yet again.Ã‚Â We need to join our brothers and sisters in the VADC and the OCYD in supporting Hoa Van Tran.
To all those folks that argue that this is a non-partisan race I ask you to look and see if the Orange County GOP thinks that it is.Ã‚Â As we are most all aware the OCGOP officially endorsed Janet Nguyen on Monday night.Ã‚Â Do you still think it’s aÃ‚Â non-partisan race?
There are many unproven rumors being circulated by some within Democratic circles.Ã‚Â I urge you to scrutinize and question those rumors and ask yourself who might be behind them.Ã‚Â You needn’t take my word for it, see for yourself.Ã‚Â Contact Hoa’s campaign at (714) 775-8422 and set up a meeting with Hoa and ask him whatever questions you may haveÃ‚Â yourself or call Trung Ta at (714) 642-9590 and ask him about his support for Hoa.
Now is not the time for Dems to start destroying ourselves.Ã‚Â Now is the time for us to come together as a united front and take the Republicans on with full strength.Ã‚Â Hoa is a Democrat supported by Democrats and independents.Ã‚Â I believe once you learn more about him and his campaign you will join the fight.
