Quirk-Silva Camp Challenges Young Kim’s Ballot Designation


Young Kim

The campaign team at Sharon Quirk-Silva’s office has filed a complaint with the board of elections challenging Young Kim’s ballot designation as a “small businesswoman” under the notion that the business isn’t a business.  Marty Wiskcol has the details on this complaint in the Orange County Register.  It’s not clear what Young Kim’s business is or what it does, but her campaign consultant says Kim has begun making money from the endeavor.

From the story:

“Republican Young Kim, who spent 20 years as an aide to Rep. Ed Royce, R-Fullerton, before retiring in September, is running against Quirk-Silva in what is expected to be one of the state’s tightest and most contentious Assembly races. Kim’s election filings request that she be listed on the ballot as a “small-business woman.”

Before the complaint was filed, Kim told the Register she is doing “general consulting for small businesses” under the name Y.K. Connections.

“I had this business before I started working for Ed Royce,” said Kim. “After I left Ed’s office last fall, I reactivated the business, and it is currently my only occupation.”

Quirk-Silva’s lawyers argue that Kim’s financial disclosures filed last week show no income from her business and that it has no website. Kim political consultant Dave Gilliard countered that she legally established the business last year and started making money from it only this year.”

There still is no website and it would be prudent for any small business consultant to provide a list of clients.  You have to have customers to be a business especially if you are a consultant for small businesses.  Young Kim also left the staff of Congressman Ed Royce last September, but you wouldn’t notice as she continues to pop up all over the district on behalf of the Congressman.

As for Rep. Quirk-Silva, her proposal to place a Veteran’s Cemetery in Orange County looks closer as Irvine Council member Larry Agran will seek approval from the Irvine City Council to place a final resting place for OC veteran’s at the Great Park.  The vote could be close.

    I met Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva in Sacramento a couple of weeks ago. She was very nice and personable and cordial, as was her staff. Assm. Tom Daly was amiable as well. Sen. Correa was super! Happened to run into Steven Greenhut – that was nice.

      You left out a second “o” in “too.” There is no apostrophe in your spelling of “can’t” and you neglected the period after the word “you” at the end of your first sentence and forgot to capitalize the “Y” in “You’re” at the beginning of your second sentence.

    listen cheminowski, i understand you’re bitter because the whole paul lucas thing blew up in your fat face but dont fret my pet, if you apply yourself and listen to my sound advice you might just end up a decent guy instead of a miserable hateful wretch of a fat man who can no longer eat.

    I’m completely not bitter. But you are a comedian.
