KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – With Election Day just weeks away, Andrew Jeng’s campaign continues to roll out a wave of endorsements from local elected officials and community leaders in his bid to become the first Chinese American elected to Kissimmee City Commission.
Jeng, a global business entrepreneur and former police lieutenant, is facing local restaurant owner Felix Ortiz in the Nov. 6 general election, after neither candidate obtained the required votes to win the primary election in August.

Dr. Steven Mullis, who ran against Jeng for Kissimmee City Commission, Seat 2 during the primary, has endorsed Jeng. Mullis came in fourth in the August 28th primary with 15.75% of the vote (1,038 votes), according to the Osceola Supervisor of Elections website.
In his very brief endorsement video, Mullis notes that he and Jeng “met at church in Kissimmee” and have become friends. “I wish [Andrew] luck in the November 6th election,” Mullis mentioned in closing.
Mullis not only endorsed Jeng, but showed his support by joining Jeng for his Fish Fry Meet & Greet to talk with voters.
“Though we ran as opponents in the primary, Dr. Steven Mullis and I have become friends,” said Jeng. “I thank him for his endorsement. It clearly demonstrates that not all disagreement has to be divisive. I look forward to exchanging ideas with Dr. Mullis on how to make Kissimmee better and working with him to realize those ideas.”
