July 10, 2014 ~ San Marino City Council decides to let contract with City Farm expire
By Zen Vuong, Pasadena Star News
On July 9th, I stood before the San Marino City Council in favor of their farmers market. The Pasadena Star News said about me,"Emily Wu Truong's voice vibrated with emotion as she spoke in favor of keeping the farmers market."  
I stated out loud... "I would hate to have San Marino's reputation to be known as the city who are against outsiders coming into our city. To me, there are no such thing as outsiders to me. Everyone is a part of my community, & no one is excluded. Everyone is my human brother & sister. The world is my country. So I think it's important for the City of San Marino to figure out what type of community it wants to be seen as. Thank you."
