Chairman Janet Nguyen angers Little Saigon by taking over Black April event

It’s Phu Nguyen versus Chairman Janet!

“Vietnamese American community groups that have traditionally organized Black April commemoration events at the Sid Goldstein Freedom Park every year say they are disappointed that Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s office is taking charge of the event this year,” according to the O.C. Register.

That’s right – Chairman Janet has struck again!  The control freak has now angered most of Little Saigon with her imperious disregard for others.

“Janet is trying to steal this sacred event from the community for political gain,” said Lactan Nguyen, president of the Vietnamese American Community of Southern California, a conglomeration of groups that includes students, seniors and veteransa conglomeration of groups that includes students, seniors and veterans.

And it gets even better…Phu Nguyen, the leading Democratic candidate for the 68th Assembly District, is a member of this organization.  So now it is Phu versus Janet!

And get this, Nguyen’s hatchet man, Andrew Do, ripped the community organization for not applying for the event permit first.  But the permit he and Nguyen acquired is only for 300 people, even though the event usually draws over 1,000 people.  In the words of Homer Simpson, D’oh!

The capper to all of this is that this year is the 35th Anniversary of this event – and Chairman Janet and her hatchet man Andrew Do have already ruined it.
