After immigrating to Texas as a teenager, Salman Bhojani worked 3 minimum wage jobs to help support his family–climbing the ladder from convenience store cashier to successful business owner, attorney, and Euless City Councilman.
Salman understands that when we give opportunities to every Texan, our state is stronger and our future is more secure. As State Representative, Salman will continue to fight for our community because everyone deserves the opportunity to live the American dream.
Born in Pakistan to a large family, Salman’s parents immigrated to the Lone Star State when he was 17 years old. After becoming a naturalized citizen, Salman earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas and became a small business owner—purchasing convenience stores across the DFW Metroplex.
He went on to earn a law degree from Southern Methodist University and a Comparative Law Diploma from Oxford University and eventually founded his own law firm, Bhojani Law PLLC.
After finding a home in Euless with his young family, Salman continued to focus on his law practice and businesses. In 2018, Salman made national headlines when he was elected to the Euless City Council, becoming the first Muslim American to hold elected office in Euless. He went on to become the Mayor Pro Tem.
In March, Salman was elected Democratic Nominee for House District 92 with over 57% of the vote. When Salman wins in November, he will be the first Muslim and first South Asian ever elected to the Texas legislature. He will also be the first person of color ever elected to represent House District 92.
