Here is what I know about I-Ho Pomeroy, who is presently running for a third term as city commissioner. I have known I-Ho since the day in 1996 when she walked into our restaurant (the now defunct Orient Express Substation) and asked about renting time in our kitchen to prepare food to sell at farmers’ markets from her food cart. Later, we entered a collaboration in which we took turns, running a Korean restaurant at lunchtime and a Turkish one at night.

I-Ho is very smart, very hardworking and very capable. These are valuable traits in a city commissioner. Having known I-Ho for years, I can also say that she is extremely energetic and thoroughly trustworthy, two more traits that are highly desirable in elected officials.

I-Ho has always shown a high interest in being involved in this community, through church participation, Rotary Club involvement, organizing and providing all the food for a variety of fundraisers at her restaurant, and hosting foreign visitors when asked to do so. She has exactly the kind of drive and commitment that are valuable on the city commission.
