Rose Pak, supervisor candidate?

Friday, November 18, 2011

imageAfter taking note of Chinatown political boss Rose Pak’s interview with the World Journal in which she disses District 3 Supervisor David Chiu and hints that she just might run against him herself at some point, Larry Bush at CitiReport explains why he thinks that could be a tall order. An excerpt:

Although Pak positions herself as the go-between between San Francisco’s Chinese would-be power players and City Hall, she herself is not a registered voter under either the name Rose Pak or at the Beale Street address she claims as her residence in what has been one of kind  below-market rate condo. The Registrar of Voters informs CitiReport that she is not found on their records in the last election – or any election. Affordable housing regulations may require she give up the affordable condo if she moves out as the primary owner

Pak has had citizenship issues in the past, when it was revealed in the late 1980’s that she was not a legal resident. During that time, Pak made a highly publicized public journey to the Immigration and Naturalization Service offices to apply for citizenship. According to media reports, the period for Pak to complete her citizenship application ended in 1993.
