Open Letter to Governor Schwarzenegger from Dina Nguyen

Re:Opposition to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Greetings” Letter
Sent to Consulate General of Vietnam in San Francisco, Dated September 2, 2009

Dear Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger:

We are writing this petition letter in opposition to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Greetings” to the celebrants of Vietnamese Independence Day in which he states “Today we celebrate our Vietnamese American residents for their contributions to our Golden State. You enrich our communities and enhance California’s blossoming diversity. It is an honor to join you in commemorating this special occasion”. This “Greetings” letter was addressed to the Vietnam Consulate in San Francisco and is posted on its website: It is highly inappropriate for the Governor of the State of California to “commemorate” or “celebrate” September 2 as “Vietnamese Independence Day” because Vietnamese Americans as refugees from Communist Vietnam have never and will never “commemorate” or “celebrate”…

Loretta Sanchez Still Angry At Van Tran

In a post-election press conference for the Vietnamese-American voters as reported by Nguoi Viet Newspaper,  the victorious Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez did not mince word and blasted Van Tran for his dirty campaign tactics.  She personally thanked Mr. Ho Dac Cam for risking his life to support her campaign.  Apparently he received threats from Van Tran's supporters for publicly speaking out to support Sanchez on Vietnamese radio shows. 

Her parting word to Van Tran: " The voters wanted to vote for an elected official who can do the job.  They wanted to vote for somebody who has a record of representing the community.  Nobody knows what he has been doing in Sacramento.  This was a very dirty campaign despite the fact that my people refused to play such game."
