“Ducson is intelligent and compassionate. He will be able to digest complex issues in representing 2nd ward citizens’ concerns.
Ducson is driven to address the housing crisis that is increasingly pricing out longtime residents and contributing to unsustainable sprawl. Like me, he walks to work every day and cares about pedestrian and bicyclist safety, while appreciating the need to improve all infrastructure.
He has the community’s needs at the heart of his priorities and truly wants to serve this city. Please join me in supporting him.”
Mayor of Ithaca
“I am pleased to endorse Ducson Nguyen for Common Council. He is very interested in housing issues, he has a smart, balanced approach to economic development, and he has a wonderful appreciation for Ithaca’s neighborhoods. I think he will make an excellent voice for the 2nd Ward on Common Council.”
“Contrary to popular belief, I’ve always believed that our representatives at the local level have it harder than our Senators and members of Congress. At the local level, your neighbors are your voters. Your decisions change the look and feel of the city, affect public safety and determine whether the community thrives or stagnates. With so much on the line, it’s crucial that we elect representatives who love this city. Ducson Nguyen loves Ithaca. I’m happy to endorse Ducson Nguyen because I believe he’ll work hard to do what’s right for the people of Ithaca.”
Tompkins County Legislator
“I have gotten to know Duc through his avid volunteer work in our community. He has also expressed a keen interest in city government and has reached out many times for insight and background on a particular issue, even though he holds no official city position. He is an engaged community member that cares a lot about Ithaca and I heartily endorse his candidacy for the 2nd Ward council seat.”
“I can’t imagine more generous and kind-hearted neighbors than Ducson Nguyen and his wife Amber. When I fell twice over the winter and was laid up for two months with bum knees, they were lifesavers, helping far beyond the call of neighborliness. A software engineer, Duc is not only smart in matters technical and practical, he is also a man of warmth, caring, and unswerving personal integrity. If elected, I know Duc will consistently seek out those solutions and opportunities that help the most people and best balance Ithaca’s many contending needs. That’s the kind of man he is.”
Ithaca 2nd Ward Citizen
“We first met while volunteering for one of Tompkins Connect’s biannual Adopt-A-Highway road cleanups. Since then we have volunteered together for many other events and organizations. Eventually, Duc joined the board of Tompkins Connect to help organize member rolls and collect demographic information to better serve the group.
Duc is a smart, honest and reliable person, whose strength is ingesting information to make data-driven decisions. He loves the city and is committed to helping the residents of the 2nd ward.”
