One such volunteer is Jun Hwang, who described the mayor’s absence as “a bit of a curveball,” but said he’s glad the mayor is getting help.

“We understand the mayor is in a facility, working away, but the grassroot movement hasn’t stopped,” he said.

Jun Hwang doesn’t understand that the official campaign is not “grass roots” it’s “the grass” grass roots is the unofficial self-organized support that retains no official support … sad really
