The Queens software engineer behind vaccine finder TurboVax is running for an assembly seat in Queens.
Huge Ma will challenge longtime Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan for District 37.
Ma developed TurboVax.info, an online tool designed to help New Yorkers secure vaccine appointments earlier this year.
Many people NY1 spoke to found it easier to use than the official government websites.
On "Mornings on 1," Ma said technology is a big part of how Albany provides services and people need to have higher expectations.
"With my background, building tools that I believe have helped millions around the world, I am going to bring a different perspective and help our government build technology that really works for the people,” said software engineer Huge Ma, who is running for an assembly seat in Queens,” said Ma.
Ma will be running in Assembly District 37, which includes Astoria, Sunnyside, Ridgewood, Long Island City and Maspeth.
