Queens-Politics would like to recognize Jukay Hsu, founder of the nonprofit group Coalition for Queens, for being appointed to Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s transition team.

Jukay, before his days in community activism, served as a U.S. Army officer where he earned the Combat Infantryman Badge and the Bronze Star Medal while commanding a rifle platoon and later leading economic development and governance initiatives for two Iraqi districts.

Since his time in the service, Jukay has become a voice of change and fresh ideas in NYC. We had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back as he began to advocate for a tech campus in Queens to help foster a ‘Queens Tech’ ecosystem to increase economic opportunity and, in their own words “to transform the world’s most diverse community into a leading hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.”

We would also like to recognize Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio’s other appointees listed here on the Politicker and commend him for choosing a diverse team that will surely bring the experience and leadership this city needs.
