  • Growing Our Economy: In order to re-stabilize our District, we must slash the red tape that creates barriers to entrepreneurship, and work to attract businesses to our district. I will work with local business owners to enhance our business climate.
  • Improving Education: We must provide teachers with the support they need to provide the best programs and learning experiences for students, retain quality teachers, and return affordability to our colleges
  • Serving Our Veterans: Too many of our veterans are unable to get a decent job, suffer from PTSD, or are homeless. This kind of thing should never happen. We need to support our veterans in their transition by getting them the resources they need.

Ken Park is a retired SCORE Senior Business Counselor and small business owner, a commercial realtor, and longtime community leader in Southern California. With over forty years working in the business sector, Ken understands the needs of our small business owners and local economy. He has worked one-on-one with entrepreneurs to help them breakthrough and succeed, and has dedicated his work to creating a brighter future for the local families of our community.

Ken was born in South Korea to a poor family. He began his lifetime of service and leadership as a child, serving as a Boy Scout leader and attending the International Jamboree in Seoul. From his involvement, Ken became captivated by the international community and longed to study abroad. Unable to leave his parents and six younger siblings who depended upon his support, Ken joined the South Korea military and served for three years. 

After his service, Ken enrolled in college and graduated from MyongJi University. With a degree in Business Administration, Ken began to work for the state government promoting Korean trade across the world.

Following his work in Korea, Ken relocated to Canada where he began working as a Social Worker for the Salvation Army. Following his passion for business administration and economic development, Ken went on to pursue a job offering with the CDN National Railway Corporation. In less than seven years Ken became CDN’s Railroad Comptroller. 

In 1987, Ken and his family came to the United States. He became a small business owner of a Chevron gas station and, later, a vitamin store. Ken’s success and experience led him to become a Counselor for SCORE, offering business mentorship to other small business owners, and his work has created 3,000 small businesses in the Southern California region.

Today Ken is a realtor, husband, father, and proud American citizen. A community volunteer, he continues to assist local residents and small business owners to this day.
