Sherry Li Hosts Dinner For Chinese Community and Republican Nominee Candidates

NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Saturday, October 14, 2017, Flushing, NY -- Sherry Li, CEO of China City of America and Thompson Education Center, hosted a dinner event located at the Asian Jewels Restaurant in Flushing, New York.

Republican Party Representatives were the key note speakers: Edward Cox, Chairman of the Republican State Committee, Nicole Malliotakis, Assemblywoman and Republican Candidate for New York City Mayor, Michael Faulkner, Republican Candidate for New York City Controller and Allan Wai-Ket Fung, Mayor of Cranston, Rhode Island and Republican Candidate for Governor of Rhode Island.

Edward Cox, Chairman of the Republican State Committee opened with comments to the guests, "The Chinese community is an entrepreneurial community, it believes in less regulations, lower taxes and the freedom and opportunity and good educational policies that permit people to rise to their best level."

New York City Mayoral Candidate Nicole Malliotakis stood strong "As Mayor I've said that I will restore the quality of life, I will work to bring our infrastructure into the 21st century, address our homeless crisis, improve our schools and make them safe and work with the governor to finally fix our subways. These are all the basic responsibilities of city government, the basic services that you deserve."

Michael Faulkner, Candidate for New York City Controller, "It is very exciting for me to be in this room, because this room represents what is best about New York, what is best about America. This room represents the immigrant, entrepreneurial spirit that must be not only continued but that must flourish for America and New York to continue to survive." The Asian Community has much to teach all communities about entrepreneurship, about hard work, about determination and I am determined to partner with you to make sure that message gets out."

Allan Fung, Mayor of Cranston and Governor Candidate of Rhode Island State, planned to make Rhode Island received the same business development opportunity as other states. As a second generation of immigrant whose parents work hard to pursue the American dream, he stated, "I want to give back to the city that gives so much to my family" and "make our state more business friendly, cutting taxes, especially the sales tax, make sure we are competitive with all neighbor states."

The dinner was attended by over 200 guests including local media.  Sherry Li was honored and excited to show her support for the candidates and encouraged the attendees to do the same.

Sherry Li has hosted several similar dinners and events to support the Republican State Committee. In addition, she has hosted numerous events showing her support for the Chinese Community, especially in Flushing -- it only made sense to join the two groups together.
