From the LA Times:
Bao Nguyen, a Garden Grove school trustee, beat veteran politician Bruce Broadwater by just 15 votes to become mayor of Garden Grove.  … Born in a refugee camp in Thailand, Nguyen arrived in the U.S. in 1975 after the fall of Saigon when he was 3 months old. He went on to attend UC Irvine, became a teacher and now is an organizer with United Domestic Workers.
