10 to Watch in 2016: Khystian King, Worcester City Council

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

 

Khystian King won in a squeaker. In a year in which the City of Worcester moved a little to the right politically, he was the upset winner with a progressive agenda.

King is a union guy and has a big focus on getting people to work at a “living wage.” He will be an activist member of the Worcester City Council.

The colleges and universities may learn that he believes that they can take a greater financial role in Worcester. As GoLocalWorcester reported, “King called on Worcester's colleges and universities to lend a helping hand to the city's children and youth. King, a social worker and community leader, hopes that the city's institutions of higher education utilize their resources to help improve after-school programs and activities in Worcester.

Self-described as “a first generation American,” Khrystian graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in Sociology and Psychology, and earned a Masters Degree in Social Work from Simmons College and a Public Management & Leadership Certificate from the Sawyer Business School at Suffolk University.

King defied the odds in winning and looks to be an influential member of the Council starting day one.
