As the first and only Korean-American elected official in New York, Ron has broken boundaries and bridged communities. His ability to cross over and communicate with different communities encompassing all generations is something that Flushing, as one of the most diverse areas in the state, desperately needs. With his flair for thinking outside of the box and his incredible sports acumen, whether it's time to think through policy ideas and resolve issues or to play two on two, Ron is a favorite amongst his colleagues. Ron's goal is to bring the uniqueness of Queens to Albany with him to make better policy that serves everyone in the state. The importance of language access, protecting "main street" small businesses from unreachable mandates, providing comprehensive services for older adults, and the value of providing a passion driven education for our youth has been at the forefront of his policy work.
