Affordable Housing

Housing costs in Aurora are continuing to rise even through this pandemic, and our working families are being squeezed more than ever. My top priority on the Aurora City Council will be to reduce this burden and allow our families to thrive. This means increasing our stock of affordable housing, investing in social housing, and ensuring that developers are doing their part to solve this crisis.

Immigration

Immigrants make our country and our city special, vibrant, and prosperous. I will fight to keep our immigrant families together, safe, and involved in our civic life. No one should have to choose between keeping their family together and reporting a crime. Our city will be safer when our immigrant neighbors know that the police and city services are there to protect them, not enforce federal immigration law. Through educational outreach and small business support, we can ensure that all residents of Aurora reap the benefits of our incredible diversity.

Police Accountability

The misconduct of the Aurora Police Department in recent years has brought deep shame upon our city. We must take action to restore integrity and trust to our police force. To achieve this, we need to pair reforms with accountability. We can expand the range of responses available to emergency calls to ensure that armed officers are dispatched only when necessary, while reducing the APD’s stockpiles of weapons of war. Meanwhile, we must also root out white supremacists and insurrectionists within the force who have no place bearing the public’s trust.

About Adam

My parents immigrated from China to the United States seeking opportunity, eventually beginning a successful small business. Through their journey began mine⁠—the discovery that diversity builds stronger and healthier communities, especially Aurora.

Throughout my life, I have always been a rank and file member of the workforce. I have worked as a dishwasher, server, cashier, letter carrier, cable technician, and now an essential worker in a grocery store. Shortly after I graduated from Wayne State College in 2007, the Great Recession hit, and jobs became very scarce. As I worked whatever job I could find, I realized the importance of everyday workers in our economy and society. We keep our economy going, even when times are tough.

When I worked as a letter carrier, I repeatedly witnessed unfair treatment of employees by management. Seeing the unfairness in my station moved me to run to be a Union Steward, a role I served in for two terms. During my service, I learned the importance of collective bargaining and keeping the workforce informed about the laws that help protect worker’s rights.
