FROM ONE ALEXANDRIA TO AN THER
"I left one Alexandria -- Alexandria, Egypt -- for opportunity, freedom, and prosperity, which I found here in Alexandria, Virginia. I believe everyone deserves a fair shot at the American Dream. In this Alexandria, where I'm raising my two precious kids, I want all children to have access to an equitable and robust public education system, where their needs are met and their unique talents and abilities are recognized and nurtured. That's why I'm running."
WHO'S WITH US?
Abdel has the passion and work ethic needed to be an effective school board member. I have worked with Abdel on school issues, city issues and state issues. I know he is dedicated to making change wherever he sees injustice or inequities. As one of our next School Board Members he will fight for all our students and families.
Councilman -- Alexandria City Council
If I could create an ideal candidate for District C to succeed me on the Board, I could not envision a better candidate than Abdel. I have had the pleasure over several years to get to know Abdel. I've seen him lead groups through challenging conversations with empathy, intelligence, and an infectious enthusiasm for the work.
