City of San Marino


As is well known, early in the evening of Saturday, June 7, I had a lapse of
judgment and discarded dog waste on a neighbor’s walkway. It was insensitive,
disrespectful and wrong. I have apologized to my neighbor for my action, and I
will pay a fine for littering.

I can understand why this matter has some questioning my ability to lead the
council. I want to assure you that something like this will not happen again.

At the same time, these events continue to be embarrassing to me, and to the
City. Because of this, I have decided to step down as Mayor. I am asking Vice-
Mayor Eugene Sun to take over my mayoral duties, effective immediately.

Be assured that my love for the City of San Marino is not diminished, and I will
continue to do my best as a councilmember to fulfill the duties for which I was
elected, and at the same time, restore the public’s confidence in me.
