My name is Shabnam Ahmed. I ran as a Democrat for the Maryland House of Delegates this past June. I fell short of winning the primary election by just 43 votes.
I want to share the truth with you, the truth of what happened that day:
In 2020, our district’s boundaries may be redrawn to kick me out of our 23A community. Such has been the fate of competitors that have come so close in the past. If that happens, it would be impossible for me to serve our community that I care so much about, and that I’ve called home my entire life. Therefore, at the behest of many community members, I am running as a write-in candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates this November.
This spring, I ran a 100% grassroots primary campaign, where I door knocked over 5,000 homes in our community (maybe even yours) because I wanted to be a public servant that truly served the public. It’s not too late to make that happen. My name will NOT be on the ballot. Please consider writing me in on November 6, 2018!
