Statement: Kun Wang (known as Kwan to his friends and family) was born in Sing Tao, China and became a US Citizen in 2011. Understanding business at a young age, Kwan opened and managed his first restaurant at 23. Kwan is self-employed and operates a family business. Kwan lives in Des Moines is married and has a little boy.
Kwan’s story is an American story—he believes you’ll be successful if you’re willing to take the risks, do the work, and keep smiling. It is the American Dream, and despite rumors of its demise, it’s alive and well.
Kwan is running because he feels the American dream is threatened and is slipping away for so many. Not because they aren’t working hard, but because government is passing policies that put communities at risk. High property taxes, job taxes, inflated car tabs and tolls are driving folks to the point they can’t afford to live in our community.
Kwan will fight against higher taxes and he will get tough on the homelessness crisis that’s devastating so many. Kwan will not treat businesses as a public enemy but as job creators that must be nurtured to help put more people to work.
