Ty Chum

Lowell City Council, District 8, MA

Ty was born in a refugee camp and by the grace of the universe, at the age of 5 ended up in Lowell, MA. Growing up in poverty was a struggle but there were many "helping hands." Because of those "helping hands" he is able to be a husband, father, local business owner, and is enjoying life.

Now, he's at a place where he wants to be a "helping hand," because he knows the positive impact it can make when life hits you hard. Ty is running for Lowell City Council (District 8 aka Highlands). He's bringing his experience as a refugee, entrepreneur, and a willingness to help into City Hall and those who live in Lowell, MA.
