I am deeply humbled to be elected as your Board of Education Member and I am very grateful for each and every one of you who either donated to my campaign, promoted my campaign with yard signs, car magnets, and Chen t-shirts, or shared my platform with your friends and neighbors. As the election results show, it was a very close race. We won one of the two at large Board of Education seats with 26% percent of the vote. Thank you to the 51,541 voters from across the County who placed their confidence and trust in me. The results demonstrate that the citizens of our County want an independent voice on their school board, the citizens of our County want a board member who can focus on academics and the real issues, while making decisions in the best interest of all of our students, and the citizens of our County want a board member who can bridge all our diverse communities for the common cause: High Quality Public Education.
Our journey started on January 19, 2022. I am thrilled to have had such a hard working, creative, diverse campaign team, which operated the most energetic and effective grassroots campaign. Our position of being an independent voice echoed with so many people in our community and we succeeded! Thank you to all of the volunteers and supporters – you are the heroes of my campaign! Thank you to my wife and three children who provided me with the strongest family support, great ideas, and joy throughout the campaign!
In just a few weeks, I will be rolling up my sleeves to work on improving our schools for all students within the Howard County Public School System. I invite you to the official Howard County Board of Education Swearing-In Ceremony, taking place on Monday, December 5th at the Board of Education Building (10910 Clarksville Pike Ellicott City, MD 21042).
Better Education for All – this will be my core focus as I serve the community on your Board of Education! Thank you!
