Chung is no stranger to city government as she was Finance Director for the City of Tehachapi for 20 years before retiring in January of 2022. It was Chung who began the legacy of being honored for presenting award-winning budgets. Chung was the only applicant for the position.

The Tehachapi City Council meets on the first and third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. They are currently meeting at the Police Department Community Room, 220 W. C St.
