The 3rd Annual Irvine Korean Festival
Hundreds of people gathered at the Irvine Civic Center Plaza on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the city’s third annual Korean Cultural Festival. The Korean Festival was a spectacular affair that represented the best of the Korean heritage. Residents and guests enjoyed an eclectic assortment of Korean dishes and observed age old Korean traditions in calligraphy and art. The Festival also provided talented demonstrations of Tae Kwon Do (Korean martial arts), famous Korean singers, and traditional dances.
I’m grateful that the City of Irvine hosted this wonderful event and opened its doors for the many guests and visitors to take part in the festive occasion. I am joined by fellow legislators and elected officials to give special commendations and thanks to Irvine City Councilman Steven Choi, Amy Choo, and all the staff and volunteers who made this day a success for the community.

Football Season is Officially Over!
January is typically met with mixed emotions by football teams in my district. I am privileged to represent cities that produce the highest quality football teams in the State. This January, I attended multiple sport banquets to congratulate all the finalists and the winners of this year’s Football CIF Championships.
Although not all teams can emerge as the victors in a championship round, there is truth to be said in that old adage that the credit belongs to the man in the arena. I extend my best regards and congratulations to all the teams in my district and I am sure I will see some of you at CIF’s next year!
