About Neng Wang

Neng Wang's story

From Taiwan to NYC.
From CPC to City Council.

My name is Neng Wang. I came to New York City in 1984 to attend St. John’s University for my MA degree in Asian Studies. In 1995, I graduated with my MSW degree from Hunter College.

After graduating from St. John’s in January 1986, I was hired by the Chinese‐American Planning Council, also known as CPC, as Senior Program Coordinator for their Queens Branch. Three years later in 1989, I was promoted to Director of CPC’s Queens Nan Shan Senior Center where I served until my retirement in January 2019. During those 33 years, I gave my all in serving Flushing’s elderly population, many of whom lived in isolated and poor conditions. I took upon myself to fight for those that were mostly invisible, and learned along the way to become an effective advocate for some of the most vulnerable within our community. During my tenure, the number of meals served at Nan Shan Senior Center increased fivefold, securing adequate nutrition for hundreds of seniors a day. Seeing even more need, I started one of the first free English programs in a senior center, empowering the elderly to express themselves. I also introduced many initiatives, including Tai Chi classes, to promote physical and mental health amongst the elderly population.

I also learned that our community needs the involvement and support of local businesses. Indeed, in my drive to fundraise for more seniors to be served at the Nan Shan center, I came to know and respect many business leaders in the Flushing community and how public‐private partnerships in particular are a lifeblood for jobs and economic growth.

I have witnessed the growth of Flushing through the years. I know its potential. But COVID‐19 has really hurt our community. I want to do something for Flushing, to help our community regain its glory. I am running for City Council to represent Flushing’s District 20 because I believe in restoring the quality of life that our community deserves.

To support this quality of life, our businesses need help to reopen quickly and safely. If elected, I will work to lower the burden on our businesses having a hard time paying rent by providing tax relief; my office will prioritize helping businesses to resolve tickets and violations that have become all too burdensome; small businesses also need better and quicker access to low‐interest loans; and I will work relentlessly to restore respect for law and order, as well as public safety for all.

That’s why I have decided to run for the Flushing City Council position. This position is not a one‐man job. It will require a lot of teamwork and support. As someone who knows Flushing as well as his own children, who holds this great community near to his heart, I am the right person for the job. This job needs a lot of ears and a lot of eyes. So together, let’s make Flushing a better place.

About Kasen Law Firm PLLC

HHL.jpg
HHL-Advisors-Group_photo.png
Over 40 years ago, the founding member, Lawrence M. Kasen, began practicing law to help individual Native Americans and tribes ply their way through the ever-complex field of Indian law and natural resources law to combat state and local governments and private enterprises seeking to infringe on tribal and individual Native American’s rights. He then went to work for boutique law firms to thwart large companies from stepping on the rights of individuals. Almost thirty years ago, Mr. Kasen formed his own law firm in Miami, Florida, eventually relocating to Charleston, South Carolina, which now boasts a second office in Flushing, New York, to defend and protect the rights and interests of its diverse U.S.-based and international clients. With the assistance of his law partner, Fang Liu, and many other associate attorneys, and a large supporting staff, The Kasen Law Firm, PLLC is proud to offer legal services in the practice areas of immigration law, criminal law, civil litigation, real estate law and landlord-tenant law.
