John Park - Inspired to LISTEN and LEAD
My parents came to this country 34 years ago when I was very young. They fought a military
crackdown on a democratic movement in South Korea and escaped certain death for our family when
the secret police came looking for them. They taught me to fight for what is right and never back
down. It's in my family blood.
Here, my father led a church and one of the very first things he taught me was that our leaders must be
servants first. Leaders must put the needs of other people before their own and not constantly seek power
I seek to listen and lead our district so that it has independent representation on important matters-
especially the future of our parks and greenspace, achieve balanced growth, and provide efficient city
I'm looking forward to meeting new residents and learning more from the ones I know.
