Aftab Pureval for Congress Reception in DC
May 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
Aftab Pureval has won the Democratic primary to be the Democratic Candidate for Ohio’s 1st US Congressional District (Cincinnati)! Having met him, we know he is extremely impressive and positioned to flip this district. His seat is one of the 23 seats that we must flip to win the US House of Representatives and he is part of the Democratic Congressional Committee’s (DCCC) Red to Blue Program – the target list of the most likely contenders to flip the Republican seats.
We hope you will join him at 7:00pm, on May 14th, to support and meet him at the home of Daniel & Sunita Leeds in Georgetown, Washington (address given upon registration).
Aftab is the County Clerk of Courts. After a tough race, he became the first Democrat to hold that position in more than 100 years. As Clerk of Courts, he instituted paid family leave and a comprehensive sexual harassment policy. Aftab is a former federal prosecutor and has represented battered women in domestic violence clinics.
Aftab is half Indian-American and half Tibetan-American. He has been endorsed by numerous AAPI organizations.
There are strong signs of a Democratic wave in the US House of Representatives. Aftab is a terrific candidate and he’s running in a seat we can win.
Suggested contribution levels are: Champion: $2700, Host: $1000, Friend: $500, Supporter: $250. This is an important race; please give generously.
Registration procedure to be posted today, Friday, May 11.
