BRAKING NEWS: Former top Francisco QB return back and….

Despite not being a citizen of the United States, a Chinese immigrant was sworn in to serve on the San Francisco Election Commission,

 

prompting concerns about national security as one US senator cautions that Chinese President Xi Jinping is playing the “long game.”

On February 14, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously selected Kelly Wong, an immigrant rights activist who arrived in the US in 2019 to pursue doctoral studies from Hong Kong, to the city’s Elections Commission.

After a ballot initiative to remove the citizenship barrier to serve on San Francisco boards was adopted by California voters in 2020, she is thought to be the first non-citizen to hold a commission position.

I can’t do it, say the voices in my head all the time. You lack competence. You’re a foreigner. Wong declared to KQED after her historic appointment last week that “this is not your country.”

She said, “If I can do it, you can do it.”

Wong, who is unable to vote lawfully, is one of seven individuals in her new role who will supervise and carry out the Department of Elections’ policies.
