November 12, 2012 – The Asian American Bar Association of New York (“AABANY”)
congratulates Grace Meng on her historic election as New York’s first Asian American Congresswoman.

Grace Meng made history Election Day Tuesday, defeating her Republican challenger Daniel Halloran and long voting lines to win the 6th Congressional District (Central Queens) election and become the first Asian-American to represent New York in Congress. Grace is also the first woman to represent Central Queens in the U.S. Congress since Geraldine Ferraro was elected in 1978. Grace was previously elected to the New York State Assembly to represent Assembly District 22 in November, 2008. Grace was honored by AABANY during its 20th Anniversary Annual Dinner in 2009 and has been a frequent supporter of AABANY events. AABANY President Jean Lee said “AABANY is proud to see the very first Asian American woman elected to Congress from NYS and one of the first two APA women to be elected to Congress on the east side of the Mississippi.”
