U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) was elected Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Meng, who represents the New York City borough of Queens, was unanimously elected by DNC members at the party’s post-Democratic National Convention meeting in Philadelphia.

“I am deeply honored to be chosen for the position of Vice Chair, and I thank my DNC colleagues for having confidence in my ability to serve in this leadership role,” said Meng. “Democrats have an ambitious and robust agenda that includes such critical items as immigration reform, gun safety legislation, helping middle class families and much more. I look forward to tackling these measures, and helping to get them enacted with the next President of the United States, Hillary Clinton.”

Meng is presently serving her second term in Congress. She is the first Asian-American Member of Congress from the State of New York, and the only Congressmember of Asian descent in the Northeast.
