Michael F. "Mike" Eng (Chinese: ; pinyin: Wǔ Guóqìng; born September 14, 1946)[1] is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party. He previously served in the California State Assembly and the Monterey Park City Council, and was mayor of Monterey Park from 2004 to 2005.

Mike Eng has served as a Mayor and City Councilman, State Assemblyman, and Community College Board Vice President. He has also served as Vice Chair of the State Board of Acupuncture; and President of the Monterey Park Library Board of Trustees. While in the Assembly he chaired the Committee on Transportation; the Committee on Business and Professions, and the Committee on Banking and Finance. Mike Eng is a candidate for the California State Senate in 2018.[1]

Mike founded a downtown immigration law firm and has also been a teacher at UCLA, Los Angeles Trade Tech College and University of the West and currently is an instructor at California State University, Los Angeles.[1]

Mike was the main author of California’s Homeowner Bill of Rights which was cited by the Huffington Post as one of the top six most significant progressive victories of 2012 in the U.S. in dealing with home foreclosures; he authored California’s Human Right to Water which was recognized by the United Nations as an “inspiring example” for world governments because it aided disadvantaged communities; he passed the first California law to disaggregate or separate out ethnic demographic data in order to identify and serve the specific needs of the many Asian and Pacific Islander communities and pioneered the first comprehensive survey of America’s largest community college system that shockingly revealed one in five students is homeless and almost two thirds routinely experience hunger and paved the way for beginning solutions.[1]
