华裔历史性突破!美国首位民选的华人州总检察长

William Tong,汤伟麟,又书写了历史! 11月6日中期选举中成功当选为康州总检察长(Attorney General, AG),他是美首位民选华裔AG! 

从2006年起成为康州第一位华裔议员,到随后担任州议会立法委员会主席,到参加参议员和斯坦福市长的竞选,他一直在坚持不懈的为打破华人参政的天花板而努力。2018年初,William参加康州Attorney General(AG 总检察长)的竞选。经过长达半年的与五个党内对手的竞争,辩论和向选民宣扬自己的主张,在与自己竞选团队(包括上百人的华人同胞志愿者和募捐者)的一起努力下,于5月18号获得康州民主党63%的党代表选票赢得党背书,进而在8月14日成功胜出,获得民主党提名的康州AG候选人。

从8月份开始到今天,面对在2016年最先支持总统的强大共和党候选人的挑战,William通过三次占绝对优势的辩论,强烈社会责任感的理念和强有力的基层选举支持,一举获得大选的最后胜利。这个胜利,对于William Tong的政治生涯是一小步,对于华裔整体政治地位的提高是一大步!

William出生于康州West Hartford,是第二代华人子弟,家有兄妹五人。他的父母早年在Hartford地区经营中餐馆,同几乎所有中国父母一样,他们拼命工作就是为了让五个孩子能够接受最好的教育。William小学和初中在康州私校就读,高中毕业于全美排名第一的Phillips Academy Andover, 本科就读于藤校布朗大学, 2000年获芝加哥大学法学博士。

William从小就在父母的餐馆帮忙,在社会的底层打拼,见证了贫苦百姓尤其是华人在美生活的不易,因此对弱势群体有着强烈的同情心和同理心。同时作为一名社会精英的律师和议员,William 也有着很深的社会责任感和民族使命感。William从政的历史和他的竞选立场证明了当人们受高房贷之苦,房产即将被银行没收、当有人不小心触犯轻罪,面临再次融入社会的困境、当移民面临遣返、当我们的社区备受枪支管理松散的威胁的时候,他会为我们积极奔走,他是我们华人在困难时最可以依赖的力量。

除了积极亲身参加康州的反细分运动,William很早就提醒华裔社区,推动一个立法不仅仅靠一人一党,而是需要多方合作。华人要切忌好心做坏事。在反种族歧视方面,William一直走在康州政坛的最前列。在FBI 局长发出“所有华人都不可信赖”和“华人都是间谍”等极端言论时,William第一时间站出来公开予以谴责,并且致信康州国会参议员,表达对FBI局长的抗议。

在近来全国范围内,无论是民主党还是共和党当政,对华人的歧视性言论愈演愈烈的现况下,William对我们的支持更显弥足珍贵,我们需要更多像他这样的政治力量来为我们抗争,做华人的防火墙。

康州总检察长的职位设立于1897年,是州里最高的民事诉讼长官,维系民生,责任重大。近年华裔社区关心政治热情提高,本着”If you don’t have a seat at the table, you are probably on the menu“的精神,积极参加参政议政和选举。今天William Tong的成功又一次突破美国华裔参政历史,在政府最高行政法律领域为华裔争得了一席之地,A Seat At The Table。William Tong的获选反映了康州选民的人心所向,是华人的骄傲!
