About
James

James was born and raised in Singapore where he served in the Singapore Armed Forces. Moving to Washington State in 1985 to continue his education, he received an AAS in Computer Network Technology from Renton Technical College and a BA in Organizational Management from Whitworth University.

James became a citizen of the United States in 1993 and worked at Honeywell and Korry Electronics. He continue to work in Aerospace at The Lighthouse for the Blind.

James choses to live in Auburn because he believes it's an amazing city with a ton of potential for economic opportunity for residents and businesses. He became initially involved in the city as a member of the Parks and Recreation Board and as a volunteer at various community events.

James is Deputy Mayor and has served on the council for four years. He is proud to be part of the most diverse city council in the city's history and so many accomplishments have been achieved together - including the resolution brought forward by James to affirm the city's support to access abortion last year after Roe Vs Wade was overturned.
