distinguished service to the Korean Seafood Association of New York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
commend the leaders of commerce and industry who contribute to the
economic health and prosperity and the quality of life, of the communi-
ties of the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
outgoing President Ho Su Kwak for his distinguished service and commit-
ment to the Korean Seafood Association of New York (KSANY); and
WHEREAS, Since its inception in January of 1977, KSANY has protected
the rights of Korean seafood retailers in the seafood business and
provided educational and financial support to local seafood businesses;
and
WHEREAS, Ho Su Kwak has been a valued and involved member of KSANY for
many years, and has served the organization in numerous capacities,
including, most recently, as 20th President of KSANY; and
WHEREAS, Under the luminous direction of Ho Su Kwak, KSANY held its
annual Scholarship Foundation Benefit Golf Tournament in 2012, and as a
result, 15 students in need were awarded scholarships to further their
education; and
WHEREAS, Along with other community organizations, on May 4, 2012,
KSANY provided a local senior center with financial assistance to help
them to keep its doors open; and
WHEREAS, On October 18, 2012, KSANY strengthened its cooperative
relationship with the Korea Overseas Fisheries Association (KOFA)
through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the purposes of exchang-
ing information and conducting collaborative studies in the field of
fisheries; and
WHEREAS, Over the years, many Korean seafood retailers at Fulton Fish
Market have been the victims of unfair treatment and deceptive practices
by some wholesalers, who mislabel names, prices and weights of fish
offered for sale; and
WHEREAS, As President, Ho Su Kwak was instrumental in ensuring that
the voices of the Korean seafood retailers were heard; and
WHEREAS, Ho Su Kwak has served KSANY and its members for the past two
years with dedication to protect the rights of Korean Americans in the
seafood business and foster positive relationships with other communi-
ties, including cultural groups, educational institutions, and govern-
mental agencies; and
WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body that when indi-
viduals of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend outgoing President Ho Su Kwak for his distinguished service to
the Korean Seafood Association of New York, and to wish him continued
success in his future endeavors; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Ho Su Kwak.
