A former director at JPMorgan Chase and serial entrepreneur, Chang has touted his experience in both the public and private sector to try to sway voters. The 57-year-old former member of the city Campaign Finance Board highlights his work in designing Casebook, the web-based software for child welfare agencies, and his role in redeveloping Queens West in Long Island City as proof of his ability to address New York’s complex problems.

Chang’s top campaign priorities are universal childcare, investing in affordable housing and supporting small businesses. He highlights his personal experience with child care on 9/11 as a pivotal moment for him and says he intends to build on the current universal pre-K model to provide child care from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for all children who need it.

Chang hopes to take advantage of the new ranked choice voting system by cross-endorsing with fellow Brooklynite and mayoral candidate Joycelyn Taylor.



THE CITY sent three multiple-choice surveys to every Democratic and Republican mayoral candidate on the ballot for the June 22 primary, starting in February. See how Art Chang answered below.
