KUSI’s story about the liberal partisans on the “independent” Redistricting Commission has reverberated throughout San Diego. KUSI sat down with Redistricting Commission Chief of Staff Midori Wong. The Redistricting Commission website’s profile of Wong does not mention her being a 2010 fellow of the liberal New Leaders Council. It also omitted her campaigning for Democrat Assemblymember Mariko Yamada, her mother, who mentions her daughter’s new position on her website. But who wouldn’t campaign for mom? That’s not even my favorite redaction from Wong’s biography on the Redistricting Commission website. Rather, it is her internship with the “charity arm” of left wing crusaders Amnesty International. You can read about all of these things on her progressive New Leaders Council profile.
Wong was spotted at SD Rostra/Two Cathedrals/San Diego City Beat tweet-summit at the Red Fox Steak House on March 3. It appears she only mingled with the Two Cathedrals and City Beat people. Regardless, she should mingle with some SD Rostra folks next time. We are as friendly and as non-partisan as she appears to be.
Understandably, you might find it too confusing to bounce between Wong’s non-partisan profile and her “progressive” profile. Perhaps meeting her in person would provide clarity. She will be the guest speaker at the May 5 Rancho Penasquitos Town Council meeting. Here are the details as found on the Town Council’s website:
The next Rancho Penasquitos Town Council meeting will be at 7 pm on Thursday, May 5 at the Doubletree Hotel. The guest speaker will be Midori Wong, Chief of Staff to the City of San Diego’s Redistricting Commission. If you’re at all interested in the city’s redistricting plans, this is the night to come.
