Last week was the telephone call. Questions were pre-screened, no opportunity to follow up or interact and it sounded like she was reading answers off of a script.

Tonight is a town hall (with or without Mimi) at the Northwood High gym. If Mimi doesn't attend, other experts will help talk about her views and positions.

How is it a town hall if she doesn't show up? (So she didn't commit to attend?)

"California takes center stage in battle for House majority"

"Democrats and Republicans are pouring manpower and money into the state ahead of the 2018 midterms."

Mentions CA-45 (Irvine and surrounding areas) and how the landscape is changing.

I just got a flier from her yesterday. She was trying to justify her vote on the Trump tax reform law. All this did was remind me to vote against her in the next election.

New here to TalkIrvine.  I came here from the 39th District (Buena Park/Fullerton), which was also perennially Republican.  We had Ed Royce who was Chairman of the Foreign Relations committee.  He was also very involved in the Asian Community there. 

Buena Park/Fullerton is also very similar to Irvine in that the demographics are changing and Asians are becoming a voting majority.  That's why Ed made very specific outreaches to Asian American voters in his district, discovered what they really wanted and cared about and earned their votes to keep the 39th district red.  A visible and active Congressman that made his district felt not only important, but also heard. 

This Mimi lady is the polar opposite.  She's freak'in lazy in my book.  Also, she's relying on the older white voters (but doing a terrible job at it) and totally ignoring the demographic explosion of Asian voters in her district.  Someday a hot young Asian Democrat is gonna run against her, leverage the full weight of the demographic change in the district she's totally oblivious to, and turn the 45th blue.

I've sent several emails to her office about showing more face time, especially to the Asian American community.  They will vote Republican if they think the Republican party cares about them.  Believe me, I know as I've seen the transformation in the 39th district.  But, Mimi and her staff have totally ignored my emails.  It's sad.  Why do we have to even settle for her?  She's a lazy Rep in my book.

Full disclosure.  I am a Korean American home owner living in University Park.  I am registered Republican.  I moved in a little over two years ago.  Again, first time TalkIrvine commenter.

New, so I guess you didn't get the memo....  It is an established prophecy on this forum that older white repubs will save the day in the midterms.  no one else matters :)

Well, those older white voters aren't gonna live forever.  I bought my freak'in house from one of those "older white voters."  He sold and went off to Arizona.  My Chinese American neighbor also bought his University Park home from one of those "older white voters" who's Washington state living children sent her incontinent ass to a nursing home.  Older white voters are not a long term solution for the GOP in the 45th district.

I may reluctantly vote for her, but I want other options.
