Over the weekend at a fund raising event for charity, Minh Duong was officially endorsed by Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese. He encouraged all voters in D7 to vote for Minh Duong for he has what it takes to bring needed change to the city. Along with the recent endorsement from Lt. Governor Maldonado, Minh Duong is building up his momentum to face the incumbent Madison Nguyen who is backed by Labor Unions. Nguyen is the favorite to win the election with her overwhelming advantage of campaign money (which came from donation mostly from out-of-state special interest groups). Her campaign theme is to maintain the current course for the city. On the other hand, Minh Duong advocates new changes to the unsustainable fiscal policy that so far have resulted in taxpayers paying more taxes into a city government full of abuses by Labor Unions and special interest groups while receiving less service than ever.
