You cannot blame the incumbent Rose Herrera for not trying but apparently her effort is meeting with stiff resistance from the Vietnamese-American voters. She has been asking some of her supporters to reach out to the Vietnamese-American voters in District 8. So far, Jimmy Nguyen used that to his advantage by telling them to as Vietnamese-American you have no choice by to vote for him.
Jimm Nguyen has been active in the community for the last 2-3 months. He was at every Ly Tong events, including his release. He is determined to win this race by winning at least 90% of the Vietnamese-American votes. There are about 8,300 Vietnamese-American registered voters in District 8. It wil be a close city council race for sure. Chances are looking good for him to win it.
