It was an exciting and action packed debate. Many issues were often drowned out by personal attackes from both candidates. The forum was well organized by APA Voice and the conference room was almost filled to capacity. Each candidate had it's own cheering group.
Thanks to Betty who volunteered at the registration and Rose for bring a group of members and friends as well as Susie got Joe/ Grace Wong and friends to attend. Much appreciation to Jill Sung, CEO, of Abacus Federal Savings Bank with distribution of forum flyers to their customers at her Flushing branch. David was also in attendance.
Eddie was doing simutaneous translation for APA Voice.
A job well done.
Next Step is to Get Out The Votes (GOTV)!
