Eddie Chiu from Chinatown has been making headlines. � Mr Chiu is in charge of the Lin Association which is a 108 year old standing institution. � As a retired business owner, he has been making it his mission to get the Chinatown community up and voting! �
By encouraging members in the community to vote, he has been getting more attention from politicians. � All the politicians that he had supported this year have won. � Daniel Squadron, Sheldon Silver, and Grace Meng. � Two of three of these politicians are new elects and have defeated their incumbents. �
I'm glad to see people active and passionate about our community. � Chinatown is such a special place but often our issues are overlooked because we are not considered an important voting block. � Politicians help those who can help to get them elected. � I hope in the future more people in our community start to realize the power of voting.
