Long Pham, a leader of the American Engineering Community

Long Pham has been a leader at multiple levels of his community and profession who will have the respect of district voters.

As a Vietnamese American, Long went out of his local community in Little Saigon to become a leader of the American engineering community in the USA before there is a Little Saigon.  First, he went into nuclear engineering in 1979, a special field that few Vietnamese engineers want to be worked closely with a former USC professor.  He developed his first nuclear invention in 1984 and was later elected by his peers to serve as Vice President of the American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME),

the institute setting standards for engineering and nuclear safeties recognized worldwide for over 100 years, and still serves as an advisor.

He has spent considerable time volunteering in inner-city schools teaching disadvantaged children math and science. In 1993 he was honored by CSU-Fullerton for his volunteer efforts in the community. At Southern California Edison, Dr. Pham was a founder of the Vietnamese Affinity Group at Southern California Edison and recently helped raise $50,000 to purchase 900 new wheelchairs for the disabled in Vietnam.

Long Pham was appointed by then-Governor Wilson to the Regulatory Reform Task Force

Long Pham has a proven track record of public policy and legislative success. His appointment in 1996 by Governor Pete Wilson to the Regulatory Reform Roundtable Task Force enabled the Governor to repeal 3900 outdated regulations and to simplify 1700 more was documented in Executive Order W[1]144-97.

With controlling and rolling back regulations on business being a top priority of the business community, Dr. Pham brings a history of success, not just rhetoric, to the table
