UPDATE: San Jose Inside has selected reader questions and sent them to Vice Mayor Madison Nguyen’s office. Thanks to all who participated.
Nguyen’s answers will be posted in a Q&A format. If an answer seems incomplete or unsatisfactory, SJI will do its best to follow up.
Born in Vietnam, Nguyen came to the US in the early 1980s and is a city councilmember for District 7. She was elected to the council in September 2005. Before joining the council, Nguyen was elected to the Franklin-McKinley Board of Education in 2002, becoming the first Vietnamese-American woman elected to that public office in California.
Nguyen notably survived a recall election in early 2009, which stemmed from a dispute over what to name an area of businesses in her district.
To submit a question, post below.
