United States Representative; District 31

This information is provided by the candidate

Justin Kim is a second-generation American and a native of the Inland Empire. As a Congressional staffer, he saw first-hand the numerous missed opportunities to help the unemployed and underemployed, strengthen the economic recovery, and address the housing and foreclosure crisis. He wants to represent California's 31st district in the United States Congress to refocus its priorities away from ideological deadlock to real economic reform.

Justin worked to ensure an accountable and ethical government that promotes and protects the public trust. He served as committee counsel to Senator Claire McCaskill on the impeachment trial of a federal judge accused of corruption. He then served as counsel to Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, who is investigating the housing and foreclosure crisis and leading efforts to address systemic abuses in the mortgage servicing industry.

Justin was born and raised in Loma Linda and Redlands. He attended Pacific Union College and later graduated from Yale Law School. He is an active member of the California State Bar. After law school, he returned to the Inland Empire to work as a law clerk for the Honorable Virginia A. Phillips, U.S. District Judge, in Riverside. He then went to work for the Department of Justice where he represented the United States in civil tax cases in California and other western states.

Justin brings together an understanding of the local communities with extensive experience in public service working on the pressing issues affecting our country. Justin and Mary, his wife, live in Loma Linda.
