Phoenix, AZ íV Kimberly Yee has been elected one of 50 delegates representing Arizona at the Republican National Convention on September 1-4, 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota. She is a member of the Yee Fung Toy Family Association and is a native of Arizona.

"It is such an honor to be a part of this wonderful democratic process."  Yee says, "To be given the opportunity to cast a critical vote to elect our next President of the United States is something I had only read about in political science books during college."

All delegates, including Yee, will have a seat on the convention floor and will cast their vote to nominate the Republican Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates for the 2008 Presidential election.

Yee serves as the Republican Chairman of Arizona Legislative District 10. She has a career in public policy and government, and has served the executive branch administrations of Arizona State Treasurer Dean Martin, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former California Governor Pete Wilson.

Yee will post daily blogs about convention activities as Arizona FOX 10's Republican delegate correspondent and the FOX News Channel network at www.myfoxphoenix.com and www.foxnews.com.
