Thank You All

I will begin by saying thank you to my family, friends, staff, volunteers and of course the voters. We were pitted in a year when it was not lucky to be a Democrat, but I stood by this party because of my principles. I see this loss as a stepping stone to something greater, if not for me, but for someone to come.

I congratulate Lyle Larson for winning the seat as my new state representative and that of everyone in district 122. The people have spoken, and as a supporter of democracy, I accept their decision. I may not have been born in the U.S., but there are reasons why I stay here. Our ability to choose our leaders makes us free, and also holds our leaders accountable to us.

I may not have won today, but I'm still proud that I ran for this seat. It was an experience I will never forget. Perhaps with the guidance of God, I will be led to a better calling. I am still here, and I don't plan to go away. To all the people who helpled me, and to all the friends I made along the way, thank you and God bless you.

BexarMet is Draining You Dry

For those of you who are stuck in a Bexar Metropolitan Water District here in Bexar County, please watch out for my new mailer hitting your mailbox this week. I've met too many people who can't stop complaining about the bad service and high water prices of BexarMet. When I'm elected, I will fight for legislation that will give you the right to choose SAWS over BexarMet. Below is a sample of what you will receive.

Back on the Radio

I've been given the opportunity to once again debate my opponent Lyle Larson on live radio. On Thursday, Oct. 21 tune in to 550 AM at 10:00 in the morning and listen to me explain why I'm the best candidate to represent district 122. This is the best way for you and your family to get to know me more. This is important for everyone who lives in district 122. If you want to know what district you live in, and all the other leaders who represent where you live, put your street address at this Web site.

Block Walking with Friends

William Peche and Dr. Masarrat Ali
My friend William Peche and I went block walking together to meet our constituents. William is running for Justice of the Peace, precinct 3. I'm taking lessons from him as we go door to door since he is so natural with everyone. Block walking is not easy, but it's a great way to introduce yourself to your  voters. It's a lot easier when you walk with a friend and fellow Democrat.

Don't be mistaken. This year is just as important for Democrats to go out and vote as any other year. If you are a Democrat, or just believe in good leadership, try to donate some time to your favorite candidate of choice. I'm obliged to ask you to donate some time to my campaign as well. Click here to volunteer. If you can't, at least get your friends and neighbors and get out to vote. Early voting starts next week.

I Support Solar Energy

As a supporter of green energy, I've taken the initiative to build solar paneling at my laboratory Alpha Diagnostics. Solar energy is the way of the future. I expect one day our very city will be powered by the sun. If you are a supporter of clean energy solutions, your elected officials can help promote better ways to preserve the environment. I promise to support green energy initiatives for the state of Texas when elected as the representative for district 122.

Dr. Ali is in the House

John Courage and Dr. Ali
My friends and supporters have been kind enough to have parties in their homes for me to meet their neighbors and friends. John and Zada Courage and also Shela Aman have been friends of mine for a long time and believe in my cause. The Courages have a wonderful group of neighbors who came to their home just outside of Hill Country Village. My friend Mrs. Aman and her husband are neighbors of mine in Roger's Ranch. No matter what side of the district I visit, I'm welcomed by such warm folks.

As many of you know, this is my first time running for office. But if there is one thing I've enjoyed the most is meeting with so many different people and making so many friends along the way. They make me want to run as their representative because I can see they need someone who is genuinely concerned about them. My agenda and policies are designed for and by them. I know they are tired of being mis-represented in Austin and are looking forward to a transition.

I hope to earn each person's trust, one handshake at a time. To the Courages and the Amans, thank you for your loyal support. I will not forget you.
