Why I Am Running:
I reside in the Asia Pacific Region for the same reasons as so many of our members: to find a job to pay off my student loan debt, to discover belonging and reconnect with my heritage, and to feel a sense of safety and security from the gun epidemic ravaging our country.
I am the product of these two places – Asia and America. That is why I am running to be the Asia-Pacific Representative at the Democratic National Committee: I believe our stories need to be heard to shape the policy preferences of our Democratic Party.
My name is Cory Lemke, I vote in Tucson, Arizona, and I reside in Seoul, South Korea.
