Houston 80-20 Asian American Political Action Committee congratulates winning endorsed candidates
Rogene Gee Calvert 832-723-4508
Unity is Power
Houston, Texas - Houston 80-20 Asian American PAC (Houston 80-20) :
Congressional District 9 Al Green
and the passage of
Proposition 1 on the City of Houston ballot.
In particular, we recognize Hubert Vo, for his win in District 149, which includes parts of Alief, west Houston and Katy and is 36 percent white, 21 percent Hispanic, 20 percent black and 18 percent Asian. Even though the win is not official yet, Vo has already made history by upsetting one of the state's most powerful legislators, who has represented the district for more than two decades. It sends a powerful message signaling the changing demographics and demands of diversity in the region.
We would also like to thank our volunteers who organized the fund raising dinner, block walking , media campaign, including advertisements on Asian newspaper and radios, and mailing postcards in Asian languages to targeted Asian voters.
" With the election over, we are going back to our endorsed candidates to ask them to fulfill their promises", said Rogene Gee Calvert, President of Houston 80-20. "This afternoon board members of Houston 80-20 met with the Congressman-elect Al Green," continued Calvert. " Congressman-elect Green reiterated his commitment to the Asian American community and promised to continue the dialogue after moving to Washington, DC. He also offered his assistance in adding the Chinese language to the ballot, already in Vietnamese and helped contribute to Hubert Vo's success yesterday." Houston 80-20 board members also shared with Green the summary from the recent "Issues and Assessment Forum for Asian American Community" conducted by Houston 80-20 , identifying the increase of crime in the southwest Chinatown area, need for expanding and improved infrastructure to keep up with the growth of that area, lack of health and elderly services, barriers of language and culture in navigating the system of services and increase in funding to address these needs.
