Sang Yi was first elected to serve on the Fairfax City Council on May 1, 2018 with a commitment to prioritize the residents of the City of Fairfax. Sang is a husband, father, military officer, and government professional.
On the Council, Sang is a strong advocate for the most efficient use of our taxpayer dollars, and is a leading voice for the preservation of the City’s character and family-friendly environment. He understands that as a Councilman, he represents the residents to City Hall, and not the other way around.
During his tenure in office, he has also championed reduced regulatory burdens for nonprofit organizations serving our residents, supported our veterans community, promoted STEM education in our schools, and successfully augmented a mental health and suicide prevention program for our students at Fairfax High School.
A long-time community leader, Sang previously served as the City’s appointed member of the Fairfax Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP) Policy Board. Sang also served as the 2nd Vice Commander of American Legion Post 177 in the City of Fairfax, and as President of his homeowners’ association.
Sang has a deep gratitude and respect for the American Dream, which motivated him to dedicate his life to public service in pursuit of growing opportunities for others. An experienced government professional, Sang currently serves as a senior congressional aide focused on oversight of our U.S. government at the highest levels to reduce waste, fraud, and abuse.
Sang began his career in the executive branch at a Defense Department intelligence agency. He also serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve.
Sang is a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (B.S. Logistics & Intermodal Transportation), the U.S. Naval War College (M.A. National Security & Strategic Studies), and the George Washington University Law School (J.D.).
As immigrants from Seoul, South Korea, Sang and his parents moved to the Washington metropolitan area in the 1980s. Sang and his wife, Sarah, moved to the City of Fairfax to find a home where they could raise their children, enjoy a sense of community, and still be within a reasonable distance to work. They are blessed to be the parents of two young children, both of whom were born as City residents.
