I'm working to improve transportation, representation, and communication here in Gwinnett. I want to improve our community and I have brought a unique and visionary perspective to the Board of Commissioners.
In a majority-minority county that voted Democrat in 2016, surprisingly Ben is one of the first Democrats elected in over 30 years and the first asian american, open member of the LGBTQ community, and mobile App developer to serve on the previously homogenous board. Gwinnett has changed over the past 200 years and now the board is finally becoming representative of the county.
Ben is the grandson of Chinese immigrants who helped engineer the original MARTA rail. He has been on the forefront of technology with over 20 years of software development experience and created some of the first websites and apps launched worldwide.
He helped save his HOA from bankruptcy, chartered the Gwinnett 101 Alumni Advisory Board, and mentors students in the Mentor Jackets program. He cares about making Gwinnett a better place for all residents and to lead the state, country, and world by example.
