CAA founder and board co-chair Germaine Q Wong honored as an "Amazing San Francisco Woman" Posted onMarch 5, 2012bysusan
Congratulations to CAA co-founder and board co-chair Germaine Q Wong for being honored as an "Amazing San Francisco Woman" at this year's Women's History Month ceremony! She's been fighting for justice and making waves for the past 40+ years. We joined Germaine in celebrating her achievements at City Hall where Supervisor David Chiu (who selected her for this award in District 3) praised her community service and legacy.
...
Here's a brief bio of Germaine that was published in World Journal:
...
On behalf of the Chinatown / North Beach area, Supervisor David Chiu nominated Germaine Wong.
...
Chiu respectfully called Wong a "superhero" and praised her for her over 40 years of community service in his district.
...
Wong is currently board co-chair of Chinese for Affirmative Action. Forty-three years ago she co-founded the organization with four other people. CAA came out of the thriving U.S. civil rights movement in 1969 to fight for equal rights for the Chinese community.
In addition to the services provided to CAA and many other Chinatown service organizations, Wong has career excellence. In the 1980s she was the first minority to lead as Registrar of Voters in San Francisco, and in her term of office she persuaded the Department of Elections to provide multilingual services to voters. Wong also served as an assistant city government administrative officer.
In her early years, Wong was a former UC Berkeley director of the Asian American Studies department. She successfully fought for UC Berkeley to make Asian American Studies an undergraduate degree, and introduced a number of foreign language courses in Chinese, Japanese, and Philippine.

Germaine Wong, SF Director of Elections, is not in charge of the administration of San Francisco elections and hasn't been since 1995.

Yet the local press persists on placing the focus on Wong. Mayor Brown has publicly threatened to fire her on several occasions, yet miraculously she stays employed.
