Dual Employment of Knowledge and Action: District Councilor - Mr. Howard Cheung Kwok-cheong (2008)
Mr. Howard Cheung Kwok-cheong graduated from the Department of Religion and Philosophy of Hong Kong Baptist University in 2008. He is currently a district councillor for the Nam Fung constituency in Eastern District. Before being elected as a district councillor, he was an assistant to the former Nam Fung district councillor Ms. Leung Suk-ching. Unfortunately, Ms. Leung was absent from several consecutive district council meetings during her tenure due to a severe stroke in 2012. Therefore, Howard was appointed at a time of crisis and stood in a by-election in 2014 as an assistant to Ms. Leung. After winning the by-election, he took over Ms. Leung’s remaining term and was later re-elected.
