District 28 - Fredericksubrg

“Delegate Samirah and I have done a lot of work over the past 2 years. We have been standing up for workers, working on a Green New Deal, and making sure that our campaigns are financed by people, not Big Corporations. You all have to send Ibraheem and myself back to the House so we can finish the job. As the youngest members of the General Assembly, we are planning on sticking around for a long time and we are just getting started.” 

Del. Paul Krizek

District 44 - Alexandria

 “Virginia benefits greatly from those who stand in solidarity with Labor and our workers. That’s what I told Delegate Samirah when he came into the House of Delegates and as a Labor leader in the House, I can tell you Ibraheem doesn’t just talk the talk, but walks the walk on these policies. We are at an incredibly important moment for our workers with the PRO Act working its way through Capitol Hill and Virginia working to repeal our so-called ‘Right to Work Laws.’ I need you to send myself and Ibraheem Samirah back to the House so that we can finish the job on these bills.” 

Del. Shelly Simonds

District 94 - Newport News

A healthy democracy is so incredibly important to Virginia. I know that one more than most. I have been so pleased with the work that we have done in the majority and one person who has been there every step of the way since I was sworn in has been Delegate Samirah. His work on Affordable Housing, Inclusionary Zoning, and Campaign Finance Reform has been so incredibly important and we need him to come back to Richmond to continue the fight. Please send Delegate Samirah and I back to the House so that we can keep at it!” 

Del. Suhas Subramanyam

District 87 - Ashburn

“The best way to improve our Commonwealth is to make sure that we have regional cooperation and I cannot think of anyone better to be representing the neighboring district than Delegate Samirah. Ibraheem and I both represent diverse parts of Loudoun, and we reflect that in our values down in the House. I am asking you to send Ibraheem and myself back to the House of Delegates this year so that we can continue to deliver effectively for all Virginians.”

Supervisor Juli Briskman

Algonkian District

“I know what it’s like to stand up to Trump and that is a bond that I share with Delegate Samirah. We both risked a lot when standing up and speaking out against hatred and bigotry. It wasn’t about grabbing headlines. It was about speaking truth to power. That’s what Loudoun County deserves in a Delegate. Someone who is not afraid to do the right thing in the face of adversity. Someone who will listen to the local leaders and speak openly about the problems they are facing. That is why I am endorsing Ibraheem for re-election”

Supervisor Koran Saines

Loudoun BOS Vice Chair
Sterling District

“All politics is local and when we have progressive people at the table, we get results by the pressure they put on. Ibraheem continues to deliver for the people of Loudoun County and the people of Virginia. From Healthcare to Public Transportation, Delegate Samirah works with us at the local level to make sure the solutions that are being brought up will work for everyone in our community. I look forward to helping re-elect Delegate Samirah because we need to have our dedicated Progressives down in Richmond.”

Melanie Meren

Fairfax County School Board
Huntermill District

“Folks, we need to return Delegate Samirah to Virginia’s General Assembly. He is working on issues that matter to everyday people like us like affordable housing here in Northern Virginia and quality, affordable healthcare for all. He is responsive to his constituents and as an elected official myself, he is the member I rely on most for our joint constituents when it comes to public education and what’s best for families, especially this past year. I am thrilled to support Delegate Ibraheem Samirah on his next bid for re-election to the General Assembly.”

Cesar del Aguila

Herndon Vice Mayor

“As the Vice Mayor of Herndon, I know what the future holds for the town, while not staying in the past. We have a diverse and accepting community here that serves a population of so many races, faiths, and backgrounds. That is why I support Ibraheem because he knows what the town of Herndon needs: quality, affordable housing that will allow for our residents to thrive in our community. He focuses on how he can help the most burdened among us, especially those who do not have a seat at the table. I look forward to his continued service to the town of Herndon in the General Assembly.”

Naila Alam

Herndon Town Council Member

“Herndon needs a Delegate who will listen to the local leaders and the problems that our residents are facing. Delegate Samirah has been readily available to help those who are desperately in need of our help during the pandemic: from issues with Medicaid coverage to unemployment benefits. He is a dedicated public servant with compassion and empathy for his constituents. Even though it is not always in the public eye, he continues to work tirelessly to serve through his constituent services to Herndon. I am so pleased to be supporting him in his re-election.”

Pradip Dhakal

Herndon Town Council Member

“We are so proud of Delegate Samirah. He has represented us very well. Ibraheem is full of energy, enthusiasm and can do attitude. His advocacy for good healthcare, affordable housing and clean energy is why we are always supportive. He constantly reaches out to us asking how we can represent us well and also seeking feedback on his bills. We will be there supporting him, endorsing him, campaigning for him, and rooting for him.  We look forward to the great work he is doing.”

Jasbinder Singh

Herndon Town Council Member

“Delegate Samirah brings a young, vibrant breath of fresh air to our town’s representation. His energy and his passion are what the town of Herndon deserves to have in their Delegate. He continues to fight and stand up for what is right, even when it is not the most popular opinion. Ibraheem has a long way to go in his career and I continue to support his service and his reelection to the House of Delegates.”

Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding

Epidemiologist

“If this pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we need more healthcare providers in office. As a public health advocate and a former candidate myself, I know that the only way to tackle healthcare policy is to turn to the ones who deal with it everyday. Delegate Samirah’s medical expertise and his plans to work towards a single-payer healthcare system in an effective way prove that he is the right person to continue this work in Virginia. I am so enthusiastic about supporting him in this campaign.”
