  • Transcribed interview

    Helped my supervisor for JobKoreaNews, Mr. John Kim, personally conduct an interview at George Piece park. We interviewed the candidate for the 2018 US House of Representatives election, Mr. David Kim.

     

    Blair: Hi my name is Blair Styers today I am reporting with JobKoreaNews. I’m here today with Mr. David Kim, who is running for the 7th congressional district of Georgia in the 2018 elections.

     

    Blair: Mr. David Kim, how many votes do you need to succeed in this election?

     

    Mr. Kim: Well you know we think we need somewhere around 6 and 10,000 votes to win. It would be great if we could get a record turnout in the Korean community. We saw that in May, we had 1,500 people in the Korean community to come out. If we can get even better than that in this race we'll have a great opportunity to win. We're hoping that we'll get somewhere between 3 to 4,000, that will be a guaranteed victory. If we even get 2,000 to show up we'll have a very, very good chance this July 24th.

     

    Blair: Absolutely. What kind of support can the Korean community give to you as of today?

     

    Mr. Kim: Well you know number one is making sure that you come out and vote. When we vote as a community we show our power, we show that we have a voice and that we demand a voice in congress. So, we want to make sure we try to get as many people out there as possible. So, make sure that you show up now between July 20th for early voting Or on July 24th. We also need a lot of volunteers to help spread the word. Call your friends, text message your friends, help give them rides to the polls. These are all things that we can really help to make it easier for our community to vote. Also, we need translators at the polls to help those who haven’t voted before, understand what the process is like.

     

    Blair: Awesome, also what kind of support do you plan on providing for the Korean community?

     

    Mr. Kim: Well I think It's important that we have representatives or staff members in a representative’s office that can speak the language and understand the culture, it makes it a lot easier. I know so many people in different communities whether you're Latino or Asian, you know you go to a doctor who can speak the language who understands what your needs are; same thing in politics. If you really want to be able to ask for something you need to be able to communicate. Government is really here to help people. I don’t think a lot of people understand what all those services are, and what we can do to help make your life easier. That’s what I want to do so we'll have an office that will be accessible to everyone in the community. They can bring up their concerns whether it’s for social security benefits, whether it’s for Medicare/Medicaid, whether it’s for traffic or school, we're here to fight for you.

     

    Blair: Mr. David Kim, how many Korean voters have you gained today?

     

    Mr. Kim: Well you know since July 2nd around 350 Korean voters have come out. That pace is around twice as fast of what we saw in May, but we need to make sure that we continue to come out. And not just Koreans, I think everyone in the minority communities, Latinos, African-Americans, Progressive-Whites, we need to make a statement and really show that we don’t want career politicians, people who want to be lifetime politicians. That's not what leadership is about. Leadership is about serving and the people in our community are going to speak out and really show those in Washington we want someone who really cares about the people here in the 7th District. So, I'm very positive and very confident that were going win, and I'm really appreciative of all the votes we've had so far.

     

    Blair: Mr. David Kim, we have about 10 days up until your election, what kind of support do you need to help you succeed?

     

    Mr. Kim: Well it's making sure that we get out there and vote. Right now, early voting is happening until Friday, July 20th. We have one week of early voting left, and election day is July 24th. So, making sure that on July 24th we make time to vote, and if you don’t have time, go early. Because they are open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM here in Gwinette county, also in Forsyth county, they have Saturday voting starting tomorrow July 14. Just make it happen, because the weather might get you or there might be an emergency that happens, and spread the word. We have a great message and a great platform and I really want to do something different. We want to make sure that people believe in government, they have hope in government, and the only way we're going to do that is that the government works for people.

     

    Blair: Absolutely.

     

    Mr. Kim: Thank you Blair.

     

    Blair: Thank you. My name is Blair Styers reporting for JobKoreaNews and this concludes our interview with Mr. David Kim at George Pierce Park. Please come show your support on July 24th for the 2018 Elections.
