Kissimmee City Commission Runoff Candidate Andrew Jeng Issues Statement on Hurricane Maria Anniversary

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Andrew Jeng, who secured a historic runoff spot for Kissimmee City Commission, Seat 2 in the August 28th primary election, issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria ravaging Puerto Rico:


Today, I want to take a moment to acknowledge the one-year anniversary since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico.

We stand with you here in Kissimmee and it has been our honor to help you reunite with family and begin to rebuild your life in the face of what we believe was an inadequate government response to this disaster.

As we reflect on this anniversary, let us come together through honest dialogue, creative ideas, and compassionate and strategic action to ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself.

We’ll work together to continue to help you get the necessary assistance to start anew here or to one day return home. Either way, we’re with you all the way.

In solidarity,

Andrew Jeng
Candidate for Kissimmee City Commission, Seat 2
