Ring on fire

Friday, September 14th, 2007 at 6:23 pm in Aaron Kinney, Foster City, Huijun Ring.


Huijun Ring, one of seven candidates for three seats on Foster City’s City Council, is racking up the endorsements.

One of the first big names was San Mateo County Supervisor Jerry Hill. Now’s she added State Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco/San Mateo, to her growing team of supporters. She’s also snared the endorsements of Assemblyman Gene Mullin, D-San Mateo, and the Sierra Club. (She’ll discuss environmental issues at an event from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday at Boothbay Park.)

In addition to Ring, the candidates for the council consist of Councilwoman Linda Koelling and Councilman Rick Wykoff, who are running for re-election; Art Kiesel, a member of the city Planning Commission; Marcia Cohn-Lyle, a member of the San Mateo Union High School District’s Board of Trustees; Patrick McKinnie, a group home counselor; and Stanley Roberts, a television journalist for KRON-4.

Of all the challengers, however, Ring has made the most noise so far. And if form holds from the last time we wrote about her, the comments section will soon fill up with glowing recommendations from her friends and supporters.

    Huijun Ring is the only candidate that is listening to we the residents of Foster City, and is bold enough to say the City Council can and should try to act in all our interests. She supports a range of issues that are important to my family, and has our support.

    Dr. Ring is a breath of fresh air compared to the current council. I appreciate her
    support of an education center with multiple types of educational formats, from children
    to charter high school and seniors. As an avid recycler, I also admire her concern for
    the environment. Huijun has our votes in this household.

  3. Marc Chiang Says:

    What do you get when you have the smartest candidate working the hardest to win the Council position?

  4. Peter Says:

    Hopefully Dr. Ring will put an end to the moronic croneyism that is costing this city millions and costing the kids their choice of a high school.

  5. Gregory Says:

    Huijun has the nicest character I have ever met in a candidate. She is truly a nice person that is not doing this out of self interest or ego. She will listen to you.

  6. Frances Says:

    She is the only candidate that supports us parents.

  7. Louis Says:

    Huijun will bring sorely needed analytic skills and project-management experience to our council, whose members (except for one) are woefully unequal to the tasks at hand. We
    need her to facilitate gaining a community educatiion center/public charter high school
    and to steer development of the 15 acres of publicly-owned land. She’s the perfect
    representative of Foster City’s new, young demographic that prizes famly values. She
    understands more than anyone on the council the indispensability of a rigorous second-
    ary education.

  8. Jeanne Says:

    I have know Huijun for more than 10 years and I can honestly say that she is one of the most intelligent, motivated, and hardworking people I know. She is a wonderful mother, a brilliant scientist, and also a genuinely nice person. She believes in the importance of education and the environment, and is willing to work hard to achieve her goals and the goals of the community. With her strength of character and motivation to help Foster City, I know she will make a great council member.

    Please Vote for Huijun Ring!
