“I am excited today to announce my candidacy for the New York City Council. I want to spend the next year talking with my neighbors, hearing their concerns and creating a campaign that is responsive to the needs of this community,” said Sandra Ung. “Our district needs better services for our diverse seniors, and our small businesses need direct assistance as they prepare to re-open. I will work specifically to assist the silent survivors of domestic violence- an issue that has spiked during the COVID-19 pandemic. I became an attorney and have worked in government to serve this community, and I vow to advocate for all in the City Council”.

Over the last 15 years Ms. Ung has served the Flushing community with distinction. After graduating with a law degree from Columbia University, Sandra worked with Sanctuary for Families, a non profit that provides free services to those facing domestic violence. Sandra has worked as a staff member in the NYS Assembly, and has served in the office of multiple New York City Comptrollers’. For the last eight years, Sandra has been a vital piece of the constituent service and community outreach operation at the office of Congresswoman Grace Meng.

Last month Sandra was re-elected as a State Committeewoman for Flushing. As a State Committeewoman Sandra has provided free legal assistance, mammograms at no cost, and has delivered food to scores of home-bound seniors. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Sandra has given food to our first responders who are working long hours on the front lines- our doctors, nurses, EMTs, police and firefighters.

Sandra grew up in Flushing, attended PS 22, JHS 189, Flushing High School, and graduated from CUNY Hunter and then received her JD from Columbia University. She lives next door to her parents, who she helps take care of. Providing the same educational opportunities she had and taking care of our elderly aren’t just campaign issues for Sandra, they are her reality.

At the end of 2021, Councilman Peter Koo will leave the seat, as term limits prevent him from running for re-election. Councilman Koo has been a stalwart leader in our community, and Sandra knows that in these difficult times the most important thing is to elect those with experience who know how government works. This is no time for on the job training.

專訪黑人牧師:黑人命貴是邪惡魔鬼的組織;疫情有因,神在掌控;黑人命貴運動是文化大革命;為何很多白人年輕人加入這個運動?面對死亡威脅,仍講真話愛世人;奉勸示威者:回頭吧。 親臨新聞現場,直擊全球真相!歡迎走進本期的新聞第一現場。說起曼寧牧師,可能很多人不知道他是誰。但是,最近在社交媒體上的一段影片,我身邊很多朋友都看過。一位黑人牧師慷慨激昂發表演講,批評黑人羣體現象。這位牧師,就是曼寧牧師。 最近呢,在美國黑人弗洛伊德,死於警察暴力執法的背景下,美國黑人牧師曼寧幾年前的一段視頻演講,重新在社交媒體上被關注。 在演講中,曼寧牧師對黑人的「劣根性」發表了激烈的批判,他認爲黑人需要看到「真相」。他說,「黑人是有問題的,他們不能理解這個世界,他們從未建成過任何東西。黑人不會治理國家,黑人種族取得的成就都是在白人、在美國的幫助下實現的。」 曼寧牧師,來自美國北卡羅萊納州,是美國紐約「世界傳教會教堂」的一名牧師。他曾因發表對美國首位黑人總統奧巴馬、黑人明星以及同性戀羣體的批評意見而飽受爭議。詹姆斯尤其反對奧巴馬,並將其比作希特勒。 近日,我們專訪了曼寧牧師,請他談一談最近在美國發生的事,以及他對「黑人的命也是命」,這個運動的看法。 更多內容請觀看完整視頻。別忘了,訂閱我們的頻道,打開小鈴鐺,獲取更新。也歡迎在twitter裡,搜索「陳曉天」,關注主播,關注更多最新資訊。好,祝大家健康、平安,下次節目再見!
