LETTER: Choose Jay Xiong at Feb. 6 caucuses

To the Editor:

We are Doua Yang Xiong and Va Xiong, and we want to share with you a little bit about our son, Jay Xiong. As the oldest child in our family, he is a symbol of the hard work we strive to achieve as parents who are illiterate refugees and immigrants who arrived in America forty years ago.

As Jay’s mother, I am most proud to call him son, because he helped raise his younger siblings like his own children, being forced to grow up even faster himself as a mature person while I spent two decades working in an assembly plant. It was with the support of our children that we were able to make it work, and I eventually started my own small cleaning business.

As Jay’s father, I could not be more proud to call him our oldest child. Never one to back down from hardship, challenges and opportunities for serving others, Jay has always led by example, especially after I a had a stroke while on the job a few years ago.

As Jay’s parents, we ask you to attend the Senate District 67 DFL precinct caucus on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. at Harding High School, and become a delegate for our son in hopes that he can go on to become the DFL-endorsed candidate and continue the good fight for all of us. Nothing makes us happier knowing that the young man who we raised wants to dedicate his service to friends and neighbors like you.

Va & Doua Yang Xiong, St. Paul
