First, the lawyer Tam Nguyen, now the community activist Van Le has put her hat in the ring for the 2014 San Jose city council race to replace the term-out Madison Nguyen. Van Le is currently a school board member of East Side Union School District. This would be an interesting race since both Tam Nguyen and Van Le will likely split the Vietnamese-American votes in District 7. The Viet-Americans make up about 28% of the total registered voters.
Thus begs the question - Will Maya Esparza run? She is currently the trustee of Franklin-Mckinley School District.
