A Muslim doctor of Egyptian descent could become the United States’ first Muslim governor.  Abdul El-Sayed, age 32, is running for governor of Michigan for the upcoming 2018 election.

The Rhodes scholar was appointed the executive director of the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion in 2015 but chose to resign in February to gear up for the election bid for the state’s highest office. He officially announced his campaign with claims that the time to act is now and that Michigan’s shared future is what unites its people.

He states –

We are not sitting on the sidelines. We must act. We cannot wait until our children are poisoned or their schools are shut down.”

If elected, he would face the major water and economic crises in Detroit and Flint, the two poorest cities in the country.

El-Sayed is not a fan of President Trump, and claims the citizens  of his state are having “buyer’s remorse.”  In a separate interview, he claimed that Trump’s decisions “are at odds with deeply held American values, and distractions from real issues.” He states some people think they can make the country great again by telling people who “look like me” that they do not belong here and they should sit on the sidelines.

The would-be governor said his focus —

“…is, has always been, and always will be people, their opportunities, their passions, their perspectives. The things that we can do for them, together”

My work has always been about building and leading the kinds of institutions that create opportunity for real people by breaking down barriers they face. That work has never been more important than it is today. The politics of fear and hatred threaten to divide us.”

El-Sayed holds a doctorate in public health with a reputation for environmental justice. His decision to run was influenced by concerns over state leadership following the lead-tainted water crisis in Flint, as well as the so-called anti-Muslim policies being implemented in Washington, D.C., under President Trump and his administration.

God Bless.
