My endorsement of Ben Ku is based on his positions on the issues, two of which are Transit and Affordable Housing. Both of these are region wide issues that have been overlooked in Gwinnett county in the past, and impact the citizens across the Metro Area.

He sees the importance of improving the public transportation in Gwinnett County which will greatly improve District 2.

Ben has been one of my most active constituents and I am so happy he has stepped up to help me improve Gwinnett. Not only has he been a leader in his neighborhood, but he has shown dedication to the whole county and shares the distinction of alumni of the Gwinnett 101 program like myself, Duluth City Councilman Kirkland Carden, and Mayor of Norcross Craig Newton. He will bring a much needed voice to the local table.

I have come to know Ben through the Gwinnett 101 Citizens Academy which is a 12 week program that aims to educate and empower residents to be active in civics and government affairs in Gwinnett County. With a competitive application process and only 30 participants being selected during the fall of 2016 cohort, Ben was that guy I could always call on for any supporting details throughout the duration of the course. He is approachable, always on time, and dependable. Ben is committed to serving our community not only as a business owner but by engaging others and encouraging them to be active citizens. He is an asset to the community, as well as a motivated and resourceful leader in Gwinnett County.
