Kim Bernice Nguyen Announces for Garden Grove City Council

Kim Bernice Nguyen has announced her candidacy for Garden Grove City Council, District 6. This November will be the first time the City of Garden Grove elects their councilmembers by District Election. Ms. Nguyen is the creator of the district map that was unanimously passed by the current City Council. If elected, Kim Bernice Nguyen would be the first Latina elected to the Garden Grove City Council in the city’s 60 year history.

Ms. Nguyen has lived in East Garden Grove for 15 years and is a product of the Garden Grove Unified School System, proud Santiago Cavalier alumni and a graduate of the first AVID Class. While attending UC Santa Cruz, Ms. Nguyen would return to her old high school, mentoring working class students to pursue a pathway to higher education. After graduating with a degree in Political Science, Ms. Nguyen returned to her hometown for good and sought to become civically engaged. Ms. Nguyen ultimately decided to seek public office to bring a young, fresh perspective to the City Council.

“Serving and giving back to the community that has given so much to me has always been a goal.” Nguyen said. “My focus will be public safety, increase access to open space, and responsibly expand economic development opportunities.”

“East Garden Grove has historically been under-represented and underserved” Kim added. “I want to be a true community advocate for the area I have called home for 15 years. As City Councilwoman, I will diligently represent the 6th District and strive to build consensus with my colleagues to create a stronger Garden Grove. If elected, I pledge to hold monthly office hours in various areas of the district to personally hear your concerns.”
