First elected to the Cambridge City Council in 2009, Leland has been a leader in making Cambridge more progressive, using technology to modernize government, and driving the innovation economy.
The son of immigrants, Leland developed a deep appreciation for American values and the importance of community participation. He's running for office because while Massachusetts is moving in the right direction, Leland believes we can do more to use innovative ideas to create jobs, increase government transparency, and leave the next generation with the tools they need to solve their challenges and achieve their dreams.
Leland is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and holds an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management. Before assuming his role as City Councillor, Leland worked at a Cambridge-based venture capital firm focusing on digital media, mobile, and internet infrastructure.
Leland currently lives in Cambridge with his wife and 5-month-old baby daughter.
