HISTORY-MAKING EULESS COUNCIL MEMBER SALMAN BHOJANI ANNOUNCES STATE SENATE RUN
EULESS, Texas (May 27, 2021) - Outgoing Euless City Council Member Salman Bhojani announces his intention to run for Texas State Senate in 2022. In a campaign that made national headlines in 2018, Bhojani became the first minority and first Muslim American Council Member in Euless history. Bhojani is seeking the Democratic nomination and would face Republican Senate District 9 incumbent Kelly Hancock.
"This country and this state have opened up so many possibilities in my life. I have worked very hard and lived a unique version of the American dream," said Bhojani. "I entered politics because service is my passion. I have always believed that this country should be a place where hard work and diligence allow every person to succeed. It happened for me, and I want a government and policy that make success possible for anyone willing to work hard and follow a vision."
Born in Pakistan, when Bhojani came to the United States, he initially supported his family by working at gas stations for minimum wage. He saved what he could because he had a long-term plan. After a few years, Bhojani had become a naturalized citizen, earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Texas at Dallas, and owned his own convenience stores. He went on to earn a law degree from Southern Methodist University and a Comparative Law Diploma from Oxford University. Bhojani worked at the Dallas office of the international law firm Haynes and Boone, LLP, before founding his own firm.
“The more I can do to inspire others to overcome challenges and achieve their dreams, the better, I think,” says Salman. “We need leadership in Austin that isn’t afraid of the present and the future, that doesn’t run from the rich diversity that is increasingly defining our state. When we give opportunities to every Texan, our state is stronger and our future is more secure.”
