Susan Zhuang has worked diligently to serve the diverse communities of Southern Brooklyn for over a decade. She advocates for pressing issues such as public safety, equitable education, housing, and senior services.

Susan was born in Baipu, China, and later came to the United States in 2008 as an international student in pursuit of the American Dream. Susan earned her bachelor’s degree in finance from the State University of New York at Oswego and later an MBA from the University of Southern Indiana.

After moving to New York City, she volunteered at the Office of New York State Assemblyman William Colton, where she used her background in finance to help senior citizens and small businesses file tax returns. Driven by her passion for public service, Susan joined Assemblyman Colton’s Office as Chief of Staff in 2014. Since then, Susan has worked tirelessly on issues facing the under-represented families of Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Dyker Heights, and Sunset Park.

In addition to her public service experiences, Susan has organized numerous community protests, meetings, and hearings. Susan is an active member of the Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Association and has dedicated herself to voter education, youth leadership, and civic engagement.
