As a fervent representative for local voices, my primary duty is to represent and promote the residents’ aspirations. I am unyielding in my commitment to listen, regardless of location, and my decisions are always governed by integrity.

Born and raised in Singapore, I proudly served in the Singapore Armed Forces. I migrated to the Pacific Northwest in 1985 to further my studies, and warmly adopted American citizenship. Since 2007, my wife Deborah and I have called Auburn our home.


In 2019, I was elected to Auburn City Council, and I have been fulfilling the duties of Deputy Mayor since 2022. My leadership in the community service since 2017 provides me with a comprehensive understanding of crucial issues. I consider public safety, affordable housing, business development, and homelessness as key concerns. I will always lead with integrity and do what is right for our city, which every resident is proud of.

Over the past twenty years, I’ve been a reliable face in television and radio news—keeping people informed and connected.

I’m running for Auburn City Council to make our community a better place to live and work by addressing issues we’re all facing.

As your councilmember, ensuring the safety of our community will be my top priority. I’ll vote for ordinances and funding that protects residents, reduces crime and holds criminals accountable. I’ll support initiatives to help those experiencing homelessness and substance abuse disorder, and be an advocate for emergency services and law enforcement. I’ll work to strengthen our local economy by supporting workers and employers, and allocate resources to improve city services, housing affordability and recreation. I’m not a career politician. I want to help restore trust in local government by showing up, serving with integrity, and staying accountable to residents.
