Asians Mourn Pelosi Ouster

By Summer Chiang, New America Media


SAN FRANCISCO - Chinese communities in the Bay Area are mourning the end of Nancy Pelosi’s reign as Speaker of the House, reports the Sing Tao Daily. David Chiu, president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, said it would become harder for San Francisco to get federal support. Carmen Chu, Supervisor for District 4 in San Francisco, said that both Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein had been good for San Francisco.
However, Pelosi’s political position on China and human rights often put her at odds with some in the Chinese community. Gong Hu Chi, chief advisor for San Francisco's Chinese American Association for China's Peaceful Reunification, said he was upset with the way Pelosi had held up a protest sign during a visit to Tiananmen Square in Beijing as a congresswoman. He felt that she showed disrespect to China, but admitted that compared to many other politicians, she had done a great deal for the Chinese-American community.

Rong-Hui Huang, the chair of U.S. Chinese Chamber of Commerce, agreed, saying Bay Area Chinese should not overlook Pelosi’s contributions to the Chinese-American community and non-profit organizations just because she opposed some positions taken by the Chinese government. He said that Pelosi’s loss of her position as Speaker of the House was also a loss for the Chinese community.
