— Jeff Moe, Board Member, Fremont Union HIgh School District
I have known Hung nearly 30 years. I first met her when our children were at Lincoln Elementary. There she became involved in the activities of her school age children. This was only the start of many years of dedication to do whatever she could to help our Cupertino Schools, and then to the Fremont Union High School District. She actively supported improvement in education, and fundraising for better education. Her passion for the students showed when she was the founder of Verdadera a publication for the MVHS students, written by the students who can truthfully discuss the real issues they face in their lives. It was only natural for her to evolve her dedication to service throughout the Cupertino Community. She has deep concerns for our diverse population with its issues for families, working people, seniors and many others. Hung is an extremely well informed about Cupertino issues. Importantly she is an excellent communicator who has shown she can bridge the gap between all Cupertino so we can all work to live together. She gets it!
— Kathy Barclay, 30+ years Cupertino resident
Hung’s wisdom, courage, and, passion, made her extremely qualified for the job!
— Kansen Chu, California State Assemblyman
As a Cupertino resident for nearly 40 years and a mother of four adult children who all grew up here, I strongly believe in Hung’s ability to lead and serve our city. She is beyond capable, exudes extraordinary enthusiasm and is the right person to shape Cupertino into Silicon Valley’s premiere city.
— Pinglan Lee, 40-year Cupertino resident
Honesty, integrity and fairness- you can trust Hung to make Cupertino a better place for everyone!
— Sharon and Jim Walker

She is a friendly communicator with honesty and integrity that you can always trust and rely on. I believe her will become the main-power of moving Cupertino forward with innovative and positive future visions.
— Diana WP Ding, Founder & CEO of Ding Ding TV
I am proud to support Hung Wei for City Council. I have known Hung Wei for 25 years. We met at our children’s elementary school, Lincoln Elementary. I have never met someone more involved in and dedicated to their community. From her support of various volunteer committees to her fundraiser work for the Rotary Club and Fremont Union High Schools Foundation, I have seen firsthand how she works tirelessly to help improve the lives of others through her hard work, experience, inclusiveness, and love of her community. Hung’s strong interpersonal and listening skills, integrity and dedication will be a huge asset to the City Council. She has the ability to understand the issues facing Cupertino, a city she cares deeply about, and will be a voice for all the residents. I look forward to casting my vote for Hung Wei for Cupertino City Council.
— Sandi Grelli, Cupertino resident 30+ years
Hung Wei is an incredible leader and force in our community. I had the pleasure of being on the founding staff of Verdadera with her as the lead advisor. Verdadera is a publication that gives teenagers a forum to anonymously publish their ideas on difficult topics that young people deal with. It was a groundbreaking idea at the time, it opened up dialogue on issues many of our peers didn’t feel comfortable approaching with their family or friends. This is a shining example of the type of person Hung is: thoughtful, caring, not patronizing, and unafraid to tackle difficult issues. It’s hard to overstate how fortunate the Cupertino community would be to have her as a leader.
— Chris Moe, Monta Vista High School Class of 2007
Hung has dedicated her life to service for the right reasons. There are few people more qualified and more concerned to the well being of citizens as Hung. She has the intellect and the heart to help Cupertino live up to its potential.
— Tarun Galagali, Monta Vista High School Class of 2009
Hung deserves our trust and our vote. Her sustained involvement with FUHSD Board, FUHS Foundation, our Youth and Community, and the Rotary Club is just exemplary. She will bring transparency and inclusion in the decision-making process and spend limitless amount of her own time to problem-solve. We are fortunate to have her on the City Council because she LOVES Cupertino, in words and deeds.
— Homer Tong, Former Governing Board Member, Fremont Union High School District
Hung has been serving the community for years tirelessly. She will bring the perspective from Senior and Youth which are important elements for our community.
— Kristen Lyn, Governing Board Member Cupertino Union School District
