Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Georgia House of Representatives District 107 — incumbent Samuel Park (D) and Hai Cao (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Georgia’s state legislature. Georgia is one of 23 states with a Republican trifecta.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“If re-elected, I will continue to work on addressing Georgia’s healthcare challenges because that remains one of our biggest unmet needs. While we have made incremental progress, much remains to be done. Medicaid expansion remains good public policy, as demonstrated in 38 other states. Covering our uninsured population, would reduce the billions of uncompensated healthcare costs that have forced so many hospitals in Georgia to close, and expand access to preventative care that will improve health outcomes in a fiscally responsible manner.”
“The freedom of choice, the economics freedom, and the rules of law this ‘Land of the Braves’ have afforded me a successful transition from a poor political refugee escaped the North Vietnamese communists who invaded my South vietnam in 1975 to a successful system engineer in Space Electronics industry. As State Representative, I will fight to preserve the freedom, capitalism, and the rules of law in Georgia for younger generations as a form of ‘pay it forward’.”
