We Vote For He

He Gin Lee, Queens Architect, wants your vote.

He Gin Lee, Queens Architect, wants your vote.

It’s a bit of a tradition for newspapers to issue endorsements in political races, and so when we got wind that an architect was running for mayor, well, who else could we support? It being primary day, if you haven’t voted yet, we recommend you consider casting your ballot for He Gin Lee. According to the bio on his campaign site, He “was named the ‘Architect of the Year’ by New York City” in 2003 and 2004 and “is not your typical politician who sees this mayoral position as a role and opportunity to win fame or satisfy personal ambitions.” A profile in July in City Hall notes that the Korean-American architect has built numerous churches in Queens, many of which can be found on He’s firm’s website. And while our incumbent mayor has much for the design and construction of the city (for better or worse), He told City Hall that is his main reason for running: “I’d like to make a beautiful city. That is my goal.” And were he to win, he’d join some 850 fellow architect-pols nationwide.

    We hired Mr. He Gin Lee to have certificate of occupancy changed from 1 family dwelling to a 2 family dwelling. Our check was cashed promptly however fifteen months (15) aka 1 year and 3 months later his firm has still not delivered what they promised to do. Perhaps focusing on his clients rather than politics would be a good first step. Then he would not have to delegate work to incompetent staff.
