Quang Pham and Vietnam War Museum in OC

There is a nice article in the OC Register recently about the building of a Vietnam War Museum

Here are some of the excerpts:

"..........Quang Pham, who is running for Congress in the 47th District that includes Garden Grove, also wants to get the museum process underway. He has nabbed a web domain for the museum and plans to incorporate for non-profit status.

Pham wants a museum that will provide a complete picture of the war on behalf of all veterans and their families.

"In war," he says, "there is a tremendous fallout on human souls."

..................................For Pham, it was the war in which his father fought for South Vietnam as an Air Force lieutenant colonel. Pham's father remained in Vietnam when his family was airlifted out in 1975, and he was not able to see them again for 17 years.

"A museum would include not just the U.S. perspective," Pham explains. "The other p…

Another Lawsuit Against Madison Nguyen and the City of San Jose

So just as the city and Madison Nguyen awaiting the trial of the Brown Act violation (which by the way is rumored to be settled out of court before the trial date in Feb. 2010), there is another lawsuit in the filing.  This is a posting on the Internet:

The excessive and selective enforcement by the City is politically motivated and serve no Public Interest of job growth or economic revitalization for the City of Sa…

Lan Nguyen Violates Brown Act?

In order to clear the controversy on whether Lan Nguyen, a Garden Grove Unified School Board Trustee and the right hand man of State Assemblyman Van Tran,  a letter asking for clarification was submitted by TheLiberalOC publisher Chris Prevatt.  The letter is as follows:

Dr. Nguyen-Lam disclosed that she had witnessed conversations between three other Trustees, Lan Quoc Nguyen, Bob Harden and George West in which, prompted by Trustee Lan Quoc Nguyen, they discussed and decided their planned actions including their individual votes on matters of the nominations and election of Board officers scheduled for decision at that meeting.

Such discussions when a quorum of Trustees are present are specifically prohibited under GC § 54953. In this case, in addition to the three Trustees involved in the conversation, because the discussions were witnessed by Trustee Nguyen-Lam a total of four out of five Trustees were present when a matter was discussed and decided out of public view. Trustees Nguy…
