With an innovative track record for getting things done, Dan represents a new generation of leadership ready to fight for progressive values.

A descendant of Korean and Lebanese immigrants, Dan Koh is committed to preserving the American Dream that made his own story possible. After immigrating to Lawrence, Dan’s family worked in the mills, served in the military, and became dedicated members of their community. Over fifty years ago, Dan’s grandfather founded Arrigg Eye & Ear Associates in Lawrence. Dan’s mother and uncles continue to operate that practice today, and they have served thousands in the Merrimack Valley.

Dan grew up in Andover with his parents, his brother Steven, and his sister Katie. Most recently, Dan served as Chief of Staff to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, where he managed 18,000 employees and a $3 billion budget during one of the most prosperous four-year stretches in Boston’s history. Previously, Dan served as Chief of Staff at the Huffington Post. He also served as an advisor to Boston Mayor Tom Menino and as an intern for Senator Ted Kennedy.

With an innovative track record for getting things done, Dan represents a new generation of leadership ready to fight for progressive values. In Congress, Dan can be counted on to stand up to Trump’s disastrous policies and advance a bold, forward-looking agenda. Dan will work to expand access to quality, affordable healthcare and fight for an economy where everyone can earn a living wage and has the opportunity to get ahead. Dan will bring his high-energy attitude to D.C. to work on behalf of the people of the Third District.

Dan holds a B.A. from Harvard College and an M.B.A from Harvard Business School, where he met his wife Amy. Dan and Amy are both avid runners: they have run 27 marathons together — and Dan just tries to keep up!
