Dear Friends:

I would be truly honored to serve the people of our amazing district as a delegate for AD 47. 2009 brings a year of change, opening the doors of opportunity, and ushering a new wave of peace, prosperity, and hope to our nation, our district, and our community as a whole. District 47 is a very diverse community of unique citizens from all walks of life, and I look forward to representing you and your concerns to the best of my ability and working hard for you and our party. I am also endorsed by California.CAN, the California Statewide MyBO Community Action Network Group as a Team Change Delegate Candidate, LA Grassroots 4 Obama, and Southern California Obama Team, and look forward to continue working on key issues like our economy, women's issues, environment, education, and social justice to make a positive impact in people's lives in our state and local affairs. In my life span, I have always considered myself a public servant and community activist, having been designated as a Goodwill Ambassador for the State of California and having worked for organizations like Amnesty International, Visual Communications, Battered Women's Society, Asian Americans for Progress, LA County Young Democrats, and Senator Dianne Feinstein, and campaigned for Bill Clinton, Kerry, and Barack Obama, participating in this year's historic Democratic National Convention where Barack Obama, was nominated as our first African American president, and donated my time, energy, and resources to many non-profit organizations that positively impact our society, especially youth and minorities. Being Chinese American, I have a unique perspective, sensitivity, and wisdom acquired from leveraging the strengths of both cultures, Western and Eastern, to become a successful leader in society. I am a Certified Hypnotherapist-Life Coach-Motivational Speaker-Educator and currently host a hit talk show on KCAA 1050 AM radio called Positive Changes with Panney Wei. Positive change is what I promote in my private practice and in my personal and professional life. It is my personal life mission to see people thrive and succeed and live a life beyond their wildest dreams. Gandhi once said, You must first be the change you wish to see in the world. I hope you will consider me as your delegate for AD 47. It would be my utmost honor to have your faith and support. 2009 is a year of change all across America, in our world, and in our communities. Vote for Panney Wei on January 11th, representing your voices in the Democratic Party. Thanks for your support!
