(Boston Orange 周菊子報導) 麻州首名華裔州議員之一,從2011年連任迄今的黃子安(Donald Wong),322日晚在他家族經營,麻州最大中餐館之一的九龍餐廳,宣佈競選第四度連任。
            根據維基百科,身為第三代華裔美人的黃子安,生於1952115日,2005年起踏上政途,歷任索格斯(Saugus)鎮議員,鎮議會主席,然後於2011年更上層樓,從地方政府進入州政府,為包括林市(Lynn),林菲爾德(Lynnfield),衛克菲爾德(Wakefield),以及索格斯(Saugus)的第九益士石(Essex)選區民眾服務。

            自幼愛好武術的黃子安,也是麻州南派武館的創辦人之一,迄今仍與夥伴在波士頓華埠經營武館,也在郊區傳授武學,氣功。
            進入州議會以來,黃子安提出過不下九項法案,是本屆議會的參眾兩會財務聯席委員會,交通聯席委員會,以及眾議會的人事行政委員會委員。
            2012年時,他在無人角逐下,同額當選連任,2014年時,他以高達60.5%的得票率,打敗民主黨籍對手。今年,他是唯一的共和黨籍參選人,將與民主黨的初選獲勝者在十一月大選時對決。
