Uduak Ntuk, a local Dad, Soccer Coach, and Engineer will be traveling to Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina the week of September 2-7 as the 2012 DNC Delegate representing California’s 47th Congressional District. A native of Long Beach, Uduak Ntuk is one of seven delegates elected at the local DNC Caucus on April 29, 2012.
“I am honored to represent my hometown of Long Beach at the 2012 Democratic National Convention,” says Ntuk. “I have been a long time supporter of President Barack Obama and I am grateful to be there to re-nominate him for a second term.”
“This election is most important of my lifetime. President Barack Obama is building an economy that is built to last. His goal of doubling US exports will directly benefit our local economy. I trust the President. From taking out Osama Bin Laden to Reforming our Health Care system to be more affordable, he’s made America a better place for everyone.” Ntuk said that “President Obama is the only candidate that represents working class families like mine and really the majority of families living in the Long Beach Area.”
A Petroleum Engineer for the City of Long Beach, Ntuk has been civically active since completing his Eagle Scout Award with Cal Height’s Troop 78. He volunteers on the Board of Directors of the Long Beach NAACP, the Industry Advisory Board for the Center for Engineering Diversity at the University of Southern California and as Vice Chair of the Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Board’s Youth Council.
Through the combination of financial aid and working part-time, Ntuk put himself through college. He earned his Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts from Long Beach City College, Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering with a Minor in Entrepreneurship from California State University, Long Beach and his Master of Science Degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Southern California.
Ntuk is the father of two daughters and coaches AYSO Soccer.
