As reported by the San Diego Union Tribune 12/12/2022, Kent Lee, prolific volunteer, UCSD grad will represent city’s most heavily Asian district including University City, Mira Mesa in the newly redrawn City Council District 6.
Kent Lee, San Diego’s newest City Council member, brings the perspective of a father raising two toddlers and someone with expertise on the local arts and nonprofit communities. Lee, 37, is also a first generation Asian American representing the city’s most heavily Asian council district, a crucial role as San Diego and its council become steadily more diverse.
He also has a vantage point on the city’s housing crisis that’s becoming more common with rising interest rates and property values: Lee says it would be nearly impossible today for him to afford the Mira Mesa home he and his wife bought years ago.
Lee, a Democrat, is replacing termed-out Republican Chris Cate as the representative for central inland District 6, which includes University City, Mira Mesa, Kearny Mesa and the Convoy District.
