Yesterday, July 8, at the Press Conference at Shiang Garden Restaurant, we announced our 5 candidates for City Councillors: Bill McNulty, Derek Dang, Linda McPhail, Elsa Wong and Andy Hobbs and 5 candidates for School Trustees: Donna Sargent, Debbie Tablotney, Eric Yung, Peter Liu and Kevin Lainchbury. Our team would like to thank about 1000 people of different culture and business, attended the Conference for their great support. We have two new candidates for City Council joined our team – long-time supporter, eight –year President of the Asia Pacific Business Association Elsa Wong and Andy Hobbs, a former 35-year member of the Vancouver Police Department. Andy loves Richmond and considers public service a big part of his life. Elsa Wong also believes in giving back to the community and is going to use her experience for maintaining low taxation and public safety. Our two new candidates for trustees Peter Liu and Kevin Lainchbury want to put all of their energy to encourage children reach their potential through an effective education.
