Andy Wong President (title) at PowerPAC.org, President (title) at AJWI. Wong has been running political campaigns since the mid-1980s. Spanning four decades he has run campaigns for propositions as well as local, state, and federal electoral races. The largest was an 18 state effort to elect Barack Obama in 2007/8 cycle. Since then he has helped flip the most red to blue Congressional races for one state (CA) and continues to run PowerPAC+'s support of candidates of color around the country. In 2018 PowerPAC+ is active in everything from District Attorney races in CA, voter engagement work in various states, and two gubernatorial races in MD and GA.
Andy owns a software company (AJW Inc.) that serves government and non-profit case management and Integrated Data System (IDS) needs. His company has been highlighted in case study books, the National League of Cities and by Harvard's Kennedy School publications. In 2017 he also launched a digital production and distribution company (KitchenTable) with former MSNBC producer Richard Stockwell. 
Andy Wong, co-founder of PowerPAC+ and Vote Hope, has been running political campaigns since the mid-1980s. His career began by winning a series of student government elections at San Francisco State University, UC Berkeley, UCLA and Stanford. Over the next decade he went on to run city and county campaigns in the San Francisco Bay Area, electing people of color and gay community activists to Community College Board, BART Board, School Board and the Board of Supervisors. His background in applied mathematics and computer data systems has enabled him to support numerous campaign infrastructures, including for Prop 54, targeting voters for effective campaigning by using a myriad of techniques for empowering niche constituencies.
Andy also began AJWI, a software company focused on the government and non-profit sectors, in 1998 in San Francisco. This 10-year old company has served over 50 counties in California, state agencies, foundations such as Hewlett, Haas Jr. and Packard, and supported projects in health, economic development, education, early childhood development and criminal justice. Providing software in an Application Service Provider model has helped move government and foundations into the 21st century creating new avenues for cross-agency collaboration and leveraging existing resources for better and more effective strategies. AJWI’s work is also helping standardize work in these fields that have previously demanded customized systems opening the door for greater improvements in government productivity.
