VIDEO: Andrew Jeng Bucks Campaign Tradition in Kissimmee City Commission Race

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Andrew Jeng introduced something new and different to the race for Kissimmee City Commission, Seat 2 during this year’s Independence Day Celebration at Kissimmee Waterfront Park: an eye-catching campaign vest with his name emblazoned in the front and his campaign on the back, according to a news release by Jeng’s campaign Friday morning.

The Andrew Jeng campaign recently released an Independence Day video of the event in which he and his team of volunteers sported the vests while connecting with the Kissimmee community.

The video features Jeng greeting people of diverse backgrounds, with everything from handshakes to fist bumps to even holding a child in his arms. Jeng vibrantly spoke with dozens of prospective constituents at the event, winning the support of many.

“It’s great to have someone here wanting to bring change and make a difference in the City of Kissimmee…and I support him,” said one gentleman from the Hispanic community in the video, the release stated.

Contrary to the usual campaign t-shirt or polo, Jeng’s campaign vest is a tribute to his home nation of Taiwan, where a campaign sash or vest is the prescribed uniform for any individual running for public office. Jeng has worn his campaign sash to recent campaign events, and it too sports the iconic American red, white and blue color scheme.

“While honoring my homeland, I also wanted to honor the nation that made my American Dream possible, hence the red, white and blue.” said Jeng. “My campaign is certainly not the norm, and that’s what makes America so great.”

The cultural homage serves as a visual reminder of Jeng’s historical campaign to become the first Chinese American elected to public office in the state of Florida.

Jeng along with Reginald Hardee, Steven Muillis and Felix Ortiz are running for the open seat on Kissimmee City Commission. He’s still leading the pack in fundraising with $25,775, to Ortiz $4,810.00, Muillis $390.00 and Hardee $340.00.

In addition, Jeng announced endorsements from key political figures at the federal, state and local level, including US Congressman Darren Soto, State Representative John Cortes, Osceola County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor Deborah Livingston and Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings.

The primary election is set for August 28.
