Andy Nguyen
County Commissioner, Precinct No. 2

Born in the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam), Andy Nguyen faced a childhood of poverty, hunger and oppression after the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975. When he was just 14 years old, his family risked everything to escape Communist persecution and flee to America in 1981.

Despite the challenge of learning a new language and culture, Andy worked hard and thrived, finishing high school with his peers. While working as a restaurant dishwasher and waiter, he attended college, joined the Kentucky National Guard, completed training in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), and was commissioned as a Field Artillery Officer in the United States Army Reserve.

Andy graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Business Management. He completed the Army Officer Basic Course in Oklahoma, and moved to Texas in 1992. He began work in the telecommunications field and soon started his own multi-million dollar telecom company.
