Spread the word for 80-20 ?and urge them to sign. Go ? http://admin.80-20nj.info/cgi/dm/8/10p/f . 80-20 will turn in YOUR signed petition to Pres. Obama on September 5th. ?to urge him to re-nominate Goodwin Liu & Edward Chen on the 6th, when the ?Senate goes back or later, as he deems appropriate. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Important Announcement: New Blood in TOP Leadership 80-20 has long planned the infusion of new blood into its top leadership, while ?maintaining continuity and success. To accomplish these goals, the following ?changes have occurred or will occur. 80-20 has hired a fulltime Executive Director, Daniel Feng of Davis, CA to begin ?on Sept. 1, 2010. Suzanna Lin, M.D., will continue to serve as Special Assistant to ?the President/Exec. Director. To ensure smooth transition, S. B. Woo was asked ?by the Board to help tune in and assist Feng for the remaining 4 months of 2010 ?as the Acting President. Effective now, 80-20 actively seeks candidates for president and vice president ?in 2011 to serve 80-20. The membership-wide election shall occur in the 2nd ?week of November, 2010. S. B. Woo has stated that he shall not be a candidate ?for either of those positions, though he’ll continue to serve 80-20 in the second ?line including advising Feng. Additional information about Daniel Feng is shown ?below. Daniel Feng is registered as a Independent or “Decline”in Calif. ?i.e. not associated with any political party. He has been a dues-paying ?member for the last 4 years, and was a Delegate to 80-20’s 2008 ?Endorsement Convention, flying at his own expense to attend the Convention ?in Foster City, CA from Boston, MA where he then resided. Professionally, Mr. Feng has over twenty years of experience with progressive ?management responsibilities in a variety of industries and services institutions. ?He has also actively participated in and made significant contribution to many ?local and national elections, in which he worked vigorously to promote Asian ?Americans’ interest. He was highly praised by those leaders of our community ?who know him. S. B. Woo, Acting President for 4 months, said, “Daniel will bring to the 80-20 ?leadership team his passionate American patriotism, commitment to the ?universal values, sensitivity to Asian American political issues, and practical ?management skills. 80-20 believes that Daniel’s appointment will greatly ?strengthen 80-20.” Woo also said, “Daniel takes a cut in his personal income to come work for 80- ?20 & our community. It’s this kind of passion, his other quality as a person, & ?his qualifications in management that induced 80-20 to select him. I am ?privileged to advise him. I hope that I’ll be as lucky with Daniel as I was with 3 ?of my top campaign aides back in 1988. They have now become Delaware’s ?Governor, Lt. Governor and County Executive of the largest county in Delaware. ?The County Exec. is also the Democratic Nominee for the US Senate in the 2010 ?election.” 80-20 will greatly NEED your help during this transition. Its annual ?expenditure will increase by roughly $100,000 each year. We need more ?members and donors.
