He is responsible for creating the Small Business Bill of Rights given to elected officials since 1991.  He was Chairman of the Mayor’s First Small Business Advisory Board, appointed by Mayors Dinkins and Giuliani. Over two decades he consulted on many of city’s small business regulations.  He is the major reason Korean families invested in NYC to achieve their American Dream.  Six days a week for over 30 years, Mr. Kim dealt with the problems facing small business owners.. In three decades he negotiated over 50,000 new and renewal commercial leases for his members. In thirty years he went to court to represent his members against warrants and eviction notices in over 4,000 cases. Before the Small Business Services agency and Giuliani’s big store Republican Trickle Down economic policies, the city’s economic policy for small businesses was most influenced by Mr. Kim as Chairman of the Mayor’s Small Business Advisory Committee. He refused to take a salary for his Chairmanship and later refused to take any government funding, grants, or establish a BID in Flushing Queens.
