|Dear Asian community,|
On Tuesday, March 31, 12 Asian Americans spoke up for our Asian Community. You should be proud of them. An additional 40 people (25 seniors)were in the audience. Great showing! Thanks to our leaders for speaking up and others for taking the time to come.
We had to wait 2 hours (a delay tactic) before we could speak. About 6 members, including the Mayor, did not stay to hear all of the Asians speak.
Council member Khan spoke but did not support our efforts to have an Asian American chief appointed. We were shocked!!!! Please email him and let him know how disapointed we are with him and that we, then, cannot support his run for comptroller. His email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Mayor said he has not eliminated the job; but the Mayor says an Asian may not be "in line" for the position, i.e he did not commit to appointing an Asian American Assistant chief. At least 5 Assistant Chiefs have been appointed from the lieutenant or sergent level. We have Asian Americans in those positions ready to take the position. This is his excuse: he does not want to upset the police unions because he wants their support when he runs for Senator.
All is politics!
So, now we must email the Mayor: email@example.com Let him know that we are grateful that he has not elimated the position and that we want him to appoint an Asian American Asssistant Chief for whatever reason you want to give. The Mayor has the power to do this.
Please forward to your friends and let them know what has happened and have them email the Mayor and CM Khan. It would be great for each to get 5000 emails. We can do this! Asians are great with emails so let's get to work!
