Ty Chum

Lowell City Council, MA

Ty Chum is running for Lowell City Council to give back to the community that supported him and his family through homelessness, hunger and other struggles they faced after moving to Lowell in 1990 as refugees from Cambodia.

His quote to the Lowell community “You guys helped me out when I was down, when I was kicked on the floor, when I was really down on myself and now I’m OK,” he said. “I can do things now and I want to give back.”

He is looking forward to bridging his skills as an entrepreneur and Community Organizer on violence prevention to better his hometown as a city council.
