Shukoor Ahmed Announces Candidacy for State Delegate (23A)
Candidate will focus on quality of life issues and promote a small-business friendly agenda

BOWIE, MD – Small-business owner Shukoor Ahmed today announced his candidacy for the District 23A seat in the Maryland House of Delegates.

On deciding to launch his campaign, Shukoor said, “In these trying times, the citizens of District 23A need a strong advocate with proven leadership abilities. I am confident that my background as an entrepreneur and technologist will enable me to be an effective voice of District 23A in Annapolis.”

Shukoor has been active in public and community service for almost two decades and has volunteered with such diverse causes as Lutheran Social Services, Winter Haven Homeless Shelter, State Democracy Foundation and the Ayesha & Ali Padder Foundation. He has also been engaged in various political campaigns including Obama for America (2008), Ike Leggett for County Executive (2006) and Bill Bradley for President (2000). He has also served as the Vice President of the Governor Oden Bowie Democratic Club.

Shukoor runs his own IT consulting company and knows the daily challenges faced by small businesses. Meeting a payroll and providing healthcare for employees are just two areas where he intends to apply his business experience in serving the residents of District 23A. His involvement as a Board Member of the Bowie Business Innovation Center is one example of how he brings an innovative approach towards creating jobs and supporting small business.

Among the key areas he will focus on during this campaign: pursuing a jobs-creation agenda, supporting public education, encouraging innovative approaches to address transportation issues, and promoting government transparency initiatives. He firmly believes in positioning District 23A as a premiere location for growing existing businesses and attracting new ones.

Shukoor obtained his Masters in Public Policy from American University. He and his wife Nabeela, a pharmacist, set up roots in Bowie upon getting married in 1988. Their two daughters attend Eleanor Roosevelt & Bowie High Schools.
