My name is Helal Sheikh
    I am an American- Bangladeshi not  a Bangladeshi-American.
    Putting American first as the HOMELAND of my FAMILY.
    My wife who is a medical doctor and my 3 children are the beneficiaries of the wonderful opportunities
    this country offers
    I  realize that in order for OUR DEMOCRACY to SUCCEED-
    it requires both an INFORMED and ACTIVE POPULATION.
    Since my arrival at the age of 17, I have maintained a DEEP RESPECT for others and made an effort to
    SUPPORT Social Justice for ALL.  We are our children's first teachers and it has been a privilege for me
    to work as a public school teacher for 15 years teaching high school children as my own. My children,
    both my own and my students, have been a continuing example for
    how to be a QUALITY PERSON and a QUALITY CITIZEN. 
    We Adhere to the CREDO--'Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You'
    As I hopefully move into the next chapter of MY LIFE, I continue to EVOLVE
    Therefore beyond Pta, Civic & Community Board MEETINGS, I am announcing my EFFORT to
    represent my FAMILY, FRIENDS, and NEIGHBORS at the next level of COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. 
    I will be running in the SEPTEMBER  12,  2017 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY ELECTION. 
    The TRUE EMPOWERMENT of a COMMUNITY requires some to step FORWARD--
    and  be RESPONSIBLE for addressing community's NEEDS
    Someone to take responsibility of your TAX MONEY so that it is spent well for your Community. 
    In MY CIVIC EXPERIENCE, I have learnt the importance for having CITIZEN LEGISLATORS not
    permanent politicians
    Politics often determines who gets what and when
    The political process, whether you like it or not, touches upon everything
    We determine the outcome from potholes to parenthood and public prosperity. 
    An increasing number of our POLITICIANS seem to put party before people
    Labeling us, dividing us, using us for their own purpose. 
    As a citizen/legislator, I will not be a Politician rather I will be your ELECTED OFFICIAL
    Your REPRESENTATIVE and therefore your VOICE. 
    My DUTIES shall go beyond REPRESENTATION and bringing RESOURCES to our community
    I will be your HOPE for FAIRNESS and OPPORTUNITY. 
    My NATURE is to find what we have in COMMON, not what divides us. 
    I adhere to the tenets that we REPRESENT all community members not just our VOTERS. 
    I am not an ideological purist
    Politics is the ART of COMPROMISE 
    Politics is about finding the place where we can all work together
    It is a compromise and an art of finding what is possible 
    Not demanding but rather finding the win-win solution
    Politics for me is not a Zero-Sum game. 
    I do not have all the ANSWERS therefore we will JOIN hands and communities in seeking and sharing
    Together we will use our multicultural and diverse STRENGTHS towards a CONSTANT effort in the
    creation of a more PERFECT UNION
    Please make an effort to join with me and let's move forward together
    Let our growing familiarity breed KNOWLEDGE, RESPECT and LOVE. 
    Let us break boundaries while extending the hand of FRIENDSHIP in common concerns
    Please judge me by my ACTIONS not promises
    Let us REPLENISH, REVITALIZE and RENEW our shared community institutions. 
    My family and I are blessed by the benefits provided by this country. 
    We are all AMERICA, it's PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE
    Do this for all of us, our present and future
    Ask not what your community can do for you but
    What you can do for your community. 
    Let me do something for the community
    Thank You
