Two Chinese In City Hall

From Ming Pao (Daily News)

January 11, 2002
(summary of coverage, which is spread out over some five articles)

Mayor Bloomberg nominated two Chinese for City Hall. They are Benjamin Chu for the NYC Health and Hospital Corporation and Betty B. Wu for Commissioner of Department of Employment.

Mr. Benjamin Chu, now 49, was born in NYC Chinatown; his parents came from Canton, China in the 301s. He has two children. Back in 1993, he was the senior vice president at NYC Health and Hospital Corporation. Mayor Bloomberg said in the press conference that he is happy to have him on board. Mr. Chu has experience in both the public and the private sector.

Ms. Betty B. Wu came to the United States from Taiwan when she was 11. Now 38, and single, she was born in Taipei City. She went to school in Seattle, studied accounting, business and marketing. After graduating, she worked in Japan for five years and Hong Kong for three years. She can speak English, Mandarin, Japanese and also Cantonese. Before this nomination, she was working for Bloomberg.

Ms. Wu says that, since February is Chinese New Year, she is hoping that Mayor Bloomberg can pay a visit to Chinatown.
