Alex Si-chi Wan is an American politician. He is the first Asian American member of the Atlanta City Council, elected to the position for District 6 in the November 2009 municipal election. He speaks both English and Mandarin Chinese. In 2009, Wan ran for the open city council seat in District 6 against several candidates including Bahareh Azizi, Steve Brodie, Tad Christian, Liz Coyle, and Miguel Gallegos. Wan and second place finisher Liz Coyle entered a run off. Wan was endorsed by fourth-place finisher Steve Brodie, a gay man who campaigned for the seat in 2005 against then-incumbent and also openly-gayAnne Fauver, as well as the Victory Fund, Georgia Equality, Buckhead Coalition and gay educator Charles Stadtlander. Of the six initial contestants in the race for the council seat, Wan was the only recipient of an "Excellent" grade by Committee for a Better Atlanta. Wan graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Industrial Engineering in 1988, and subsequently went onto Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania to obtain a Master of Business Administration degree in Finance, graduating in 1993.
