My name is Minh Ngo and I am running for the Milpitas School Board. I am a Vietnamese/Chinese-American Bay Area native of 37 years, with the last 10 years residing in the tri-city Milpitas area. I am a son to refugees from a war torn country. My parents came to this country with nothing in their pockets and spoke no English. They worked hard to carve out a living and raise a family. My father is a retired night custodian after 28 years of service at an elementary school. My mother is a retired seamstress of 28 years. Hard work and sacrifice has always been in my family's genes.
I am a parent of 3 young children in the school district, we plan to be involved with the education community long term. I am a Director of Financial Investments and Governance in one of the world's largest financial institutions going on for 14 years. I am an active community leader involved with our Parent Teacher Organization, School Site Council, Community Board Advisory Council, Habitat for Humanity, former basketball coach, member of the Asian Leadership Network, Bank of America community volunteer, and Milpitas Rotary Club member.
My five priorities are building cultural awareness, support early childhood education, support STEAM education, empowering our homeless youth, and ensuring responsible spending.
But the most important thing here is that it takes courage and leadership to hear each of your concerns and questions, and to bring the solutions that addresses the needs of today while giving our children a better future. Life is a series of pop quizzes, and in these moments one’s true character is shown. These qualities can’t be taught, they come from the inside. Through the past several months, you have witnessed the work I have poured into our schools supporting our children, teachers, and support staff. I will bring leadership, integrity, and commitment to our school district.
However I can’t do this on my own, I need your support and I need your vote. Sign up to display a lawn sign, donate to the campaign, or be a volunteer. Together we will ensure the future is secured for our children.
