Local Democrats are crowding for a chance at joining the U.S state senate to fill the seat state Senator Jennifer T. Wexton with a special election to be held likely in January, 2019.
Already, three Democrats have announced an intention to run named Delegate Jennifer B. Boysko, Community activist Charlotte McConnell, and Consultant Sharafat Hussain.
Sharafat Hussain is the first Bangladeshi American democratic candidate for Virginia State Senate Seat. He is representing the 33rd district after residing for more than a decade in Loudon County. He is the former Loudoun County Democratic Committee fundraising chairman, a member of the Loudoun Democrats’ executive committee, and Vice Chairman of the Leesburg District Democrats.
Sharafat Hussain also worked as a former business development consultant and the chairman and publisher of Weekly Bangladeshi, a weekly paper published in New York and London with articles in English and Bengali.
Sharafat Hussain is pretty much confident about himself and portrayed himself as Wexton’s successor. He described himself as “the only candidate who can win” the race. “I have received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from the community and from the Loudoun County Democrat Party. My campaign will knock every door to earn a blue vote and to create an unstoppable blue wave,” he said.
He also said, “Currently I working with many wonderful people who are providing me with their knowledge and guidance which is helping me to put together a strong campaign team.”
Hussain wants to take Jennifer T. Wexton’s legacy one step ahead. He wants to take this to the next level, especially for the Equal Right Amendment Laws. His goal is to win the trust and faith of the community by running an effective and escalating campaign.
