Why I am Running
I would like to thank all of the residents of the 33rd District for placing their confidence in me to represent them in the State Legislature. First and foremost, I am a husband, father of 3 children and a small business owner.
I immigrated to this wonderful country as a teenager in search of a better life and future. With hard work, determination and many sleepless nights, I have reached my own version of the American Dream. None of this would have ever been possible without all of the great opportunities that this country has offered me.
Running for office is one way for me to do my part and give back. I want to make sure that our children and grandchildren have the same and even better opportunities that would help them reach their full potential.
Small businesses are the back bone of our economy and we have to take care of them so that they are able to grow, create jobs and expand our tax base. I have worked with Governor Hogan over the past four years to ensure that we eliminate red tape and burdensome regulations so we can save and attract new businesses.
Furthermore, I am not a single issue candidate. I have worked and continue to work on a variety of issues that affect our citizens. As the father of 3 with one child in elementary, middle and high school, it is very important to me that they all get the best quality of education our schools have to offer.
I am very proud of my work on a variety of issues from fighting to lower our health insurance premiums, prescription drug prices to the opioid epidemic and mental health is often ignored. As a member of the Minority party, we work extremely hard across the aisle to make sure both sides of the issue are being heard and we are coming out with good pieces of legislation that benefit every single one of you.
I am determined to fight for things that I believe are detrimental to the future of our state. We all agree that we need safe schools, good roads, clean air and fresh water and the best of everything but, we have different ways of attaining them. Money does not buy happiness nor fix all of our problems.
I strive to work with my colleagues to find workable common sense solutions. In this political climate, people often use emotions over facts but as elected representatives, we owe it to our constituents to look at the issues, listen to both sides, and use facts to come up with solutions. In addition to being policy makers, we are also your link to government and constituent services is extremely important to me and my to my role as your delegate..
Four years ago I made you a promise that if you give me a chance to be your Delegate, I will give the job everything I have and will always to available to you and to your families.Today I renew that promise and hope that you`ll give me another chance to represent you. It has been the greatest honor of my life to represent you and humbly ask for your support on November 6.
