“I’m running for governor to make sure the future my parents provided for my family becomes a reality for the future of all California families,” Chiang told City News Service in February response to a series of questions emailed to his campaign.
“As a child of immigrant parents, me and my siblings grew up in a much different time. My parents arrived in this country, each dreaming of a better future. While their determination and relentlessness led to a middle-class neighborhood with better schools, we still experienced bigotry, as the first Asian-American family on the block, but my parents never gave up on a better life for my family.”
Chiang promised that if elected he would “be a strong fiscal leader who will govern with inclusiveness” including “offering real solutions to issues like improving our infrastructure, nurturing our booming renewable energy sector and protecting our immigrant neighbors.”
