Justin is a first-generation Taiwanese American, a proud product of the Medford Public Schools, and the former chair of the Harvard Public Opinion Project. From serving as the Student Representative to the School Committee, to negotiating school improvements on the Site Council, to advocating for mental health investments at the national level, Justin always worked to uplift marginalized voices and make Medford work for everyone.
As a member of Site Council at Medford High School, Justin collaborated with community stakeholders to pass two school improvement plans addressing the vaping epidemic, needed infrastructure repairs, and a review of school policies that laid the groundwork for more transparent policies.
Justin is running for Medford City Council to energize Medford with a bold, progressive vision and a commitment to justice. He will prioritize 1) building an affordable Medford by protecting tenant rights and expanding affordable housing, 2) strengthening schools by reversing cuts to education funding and eliminating regressive student fees, 3) protecting our environment and investing in the local economy by passing a Medford Green New Deal, and 4) fostering an inclusive Medford where people are heard by the city government regardless of their backgrounds.
