Otto Lee emigrated from Hong Kong with his family when he was 15. He earned a bachelor's in chemical and nuclear engineering from the University of California-Berkeley and a law degree from the University of California-Hastings.
Upon graduating from college, Lee was commissioned an ensign in the U.S. Navy, serving as a supply officer. As a commander in the Navy Reserve, he served in Korea and was stationed in Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was awarded the Bronze Star.
Lee is a patent attorney and founder and managing partner of the Intellectual Property Law Group.
He was chair of the Sunnyvale Planning Commission and was elected to the Sunnyvale City Council in 2003, later serving as mayor.
He and his wife, Sally, have three children.
The cornerstone of Otto Lee's 2012 candidacy for California's 22nd Congressional District seat is working to improve conditions for military veterans. He wants to expand mental health benefits and access to educational opportunities, and speed up claims processing.
Lee is also in favor of promoting job growth through backing California's high-speed rail project and alternative energy sources. He says he will fight for comprehensive immigration reform, and a more equitable water distribution policy.
