TAHW STATEMENT BY REP. SUE KELLY (R-NY):
May 11, 2001
It is my sincere pleasure to extend to the Taiwanese
especially those in NY's 19th Congressional District, my
heartfelt congratulations as you
celebrate Taiwanese American Heritage Week.
Taiwanese Americans have contributed greatly to the success
we currently enjoy in the 19th District of NY. 40% of all
Taiwanese Americans are college graduates and 8% hold
doctoral degrees. Taiwanese Americans are leaders in the
fields of education, the sciences and I am pleased to serve
with the first Taiwanese American elected to Congress,
Representative David Wu.
Taiwanese Americans have also contributed to the cause of
freedom and democracy through their selfless defense and
support of the island of Taiwan. Real security for Taiwan
and the promotion of democracy throughout all of Asia is a
concern of mine and all Taiwanese Americans.
Once again, congratulations as you celebrate this special
week deservedly set aside to honor the contributions of
Member of Congress
