The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of Young Kim for her election campaign to the U.S. House of Representatives in California's 39th congressional district on October 17, 2018.
Young Kim’s career began as a small business owner and financial analyst. However, representing our area was always a calling that she would one day pursue. Her public service began more than 25 years ago, when Kim began to work for U.S. Representative Ed Royce, eventually becoming his Director of Community Operations.
Continuing to expand her public service, Kim was elected to the 65th District of the California State Assembly in 2014. Despite long odds, Young Kim unseated a fully funded incumbent to become the first ever Korean-American Republican woman elected to serve in the State Assembly.
As Assemblywoman, Kim was a champion for public safety causes. Kim championed a measure for protecting victims of domestic violence with her bill (AB 2078) that passed the Assembly with bipartisan support.
Continuing her community involvement, Young Kim has founded and continues to serve on the Board of Directors for numerous local non-profit organizations.
