Mandy Cheng Endorses Abbie Smith For Mayor

“I’m a designer living in LA, but I’m from Indiana and have been friends with Abbie since I was 13. I’ve volunteered my skills for Abbie’s campaign because I believe with all my heart that if Kokomo is looking for a mayor that is capable, honest, effective, driven, and genuine to the core, I can attest as well as any of her other close friends that Abbie is that person.

I know that Abbie will always make the right choice, stand up for those that don’t feel they have a voice, and put in the hard work so that Kokomo is the best city it can be. I know this because these have been steadfast traits of Abbie since the day we met. Being a Chinese-American girl in a school where the only other Chinese person was my older brother, I experienced a lot of bullying and racism, especially during junior high. It was around this time that I met Abbie and her friendship was life-changing for me. She stood up to the bullying, was my voice when I didn’t have one, and did whatever she could to help me. This is all while juggling being a kid herself, a 13 year old just trying to deal with her own pressures. None of this is about the charade of politics or the prestige of a title, it’s ONLY about doing what is best and right for you and everyone. Because that’s what she cares about. It’s all she cares about.”
