Sam Yoon

It’s a bit hard to believe, but Sam Yoon is the first Asian candidate ever to run for public office in the City of Boston. As an at-large candidate for City Council, he is making the rounds to try to get his name known. He’s going to need a lot of help; Barbara and I got to meet him this evening at a “meet and greet” event held by some friends of ours, and only about 25 people showed up. A former teacher, community activist, and promoter of quality affordable housing, Sam would be a welcome addition to the Council. (My words, though I admit they sound like a campaign commercial.)
