FAPA Announcement

◎ Peter Chen

 

Dear Board:

Thank you for your support and critique over the last two years. Your activism is what makes FAPA successful.

I appreciate the inquiries from several of you regarding my decision not to seek re-election of a second term. I consider it an honor and privilege and to serve the past two years and am grateful for the support from you. My decision was based on several factors, some personal and some professional. The overriding factor, as some of you know, is the serious medical issues that members of my immediate family face which continue to deteriorate and require my time with them as a priority. Due to the privacy of the matter, I do not wish to disclose the details in public email but am happy to share with you in private.

I informed several Board members as early as this summer of my situation and intent. I encouraged a number of Board members to run. The announcement for election was also made to the Board as required by the by-laws. I am grateful Dr. Mike Kuo is willing to carry forward with the responsibility of the presidency. The decision not to run was made by me and my family.

Mike has been a warrior in Taiwanese democracy and independence movement his whole life time. His work and dedication not only in FAPA but the Taiwanese American community is self-evident. He is selfless and honorable. I support him and ask for you to do the same so that he can have the full mandate to deal with the issues and challenges FAPA face.

Sincerely,

Peter C. Chen, Esq.

FAPA的宗旨

Dear FAPA Family:

FAPA has a long and strong history of speaking in support of Taiwan's democracy and self-determination. We are not an affiliate or sponsor of any political parties. A strong trait of FAPA is our ability to work with different groups and individuals, on the basis of promoting Taiwanese independence and democracy. We share together the love for Taiwan and the rights of people of Taiwan to determine Taiwan's future. This is FAPA.

One of the memorable moments in FAPA history was Taiwan President Chen’s appearance and speech at the FAPA banquet in Taiwan. Over time, we’ve also played an important role in highlighting the need for judicial independence and due process and medical parole. This is FAPA.

I have read the various contentions in recent emails; we are looking into the allegations and will investigate and take prompt action as necessary and appropriate. Where individuals undertake acts contrary to the FAPA missions and the expected standard, we will act fully. Where false allegations seek to undermine FAPA’s integrity, we will defend and rebut fully. FAPA's integrity to do the right thing is always of the utmost importance. Any disputes or contentions need to and will be resolved through the proper and fair process.

Please trust FAPA will continue its missions, regardless of the political administration in Taiwan. This is FAPA.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Peter Chen
