My name is Ammar, the people’s candidate. I was born in East County, the son of a Christian working-class mother who raised me with help from family and neighbors. From my first job as a church janitor to serving in the White House; I’ve devoted my life to service.
I’m running to give back to my mother’s generation, and to all those seeking to live and retire with dignity. As a business owner, I know the burdens we face. As a Labor Department official, I served working families. Being your congressman isn’t about my personal politics — it’s about your personal health, safety, and economic dignity.
While career politicians put their own interest ahead of ours and use special interest contributions and tax dollars to finance lavish lifestyles, I’ll never forget where I come from.I’ll fight for real ethics and campaign finance reform – and I won’t take a dime of corporate PAC money.
We all have a role to play in restoring America’s core values: responsibility from all; opportunity for all. That’s why in Washington, I worked with Republicans and Democrats to advance critical programs, including apprenticeship jobs that pay double the average American’s income.
So while extremists in Washington vote to take healthcare away from us, undermine Social Security and Medicare, and attack women’s rights, I’ll stand up for our families and work with members of both parties for common sense solutions.
I’m ready to be your independent voice in Washington, if you’ll be my voice this election.
