Candidate Caforio acknowledged, “Korean Americans residing in the Porter Ranch Area have not been compensated properly and that the housing prices in the area has declined due to the Gas Leaks Accident.” He further stated, “ultimately, a politician must take charge in calling for change. If I am elected, I will use my expertise and knowledge gathered through my career as an attorney to avidly propose change and fight for my district.”

Instead of working for the political elite, Candidate Caforio promises to fight for the citizens within the District. He claimed that the current system of banks and corporations pocketing most of the wealth of society must change.
His campaign’s promises consists of but are not limited to: overcoming differences between the political parties and working together for bipartisan plans, creating a safer environment, creating jobs, restoring the depleting middle class, and finally, economic stability.

To conclude, Candidate Caforio stressed importance of the right to vote and strongly encouraged citizens to register to vote. He claimed that voting is the best and most efficient way to stop illogical politicians like Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, and current political elites that are similar to Donald Trump and emphatically encouraged all Korean Americans to register to vote and vote in the elections not only to put a stop to nonsensical politics, but also to reform and change the system.
