    Asian American Architects and Engineers (AAAE) wishes to express our deepest sorrow and sadness about the passing of Mayor Edwin Lee. Mayor Lee has been a great long-time supporter and friend of AAAE and a longtime advocate for equal opportunities for minority and women owned firms. He has also inspired many Asian Americans for civil service and elected offices.

    Mayor Lee just spoke at our annual gala dinner last month about his vision and approaches to address affordable housing and needs for transportation infrastructure in the City and the region.

    We will miss him!

    Our deepest condolences to the Lee family.
