A Persian-American Runs for Governor for the
First Time in History
We are delighted to announce that on July 28, 2003, Badi Badiozamani,
Ph.D. filed papers to run as a candidate for Governor in the Recall
Election in the State of California. This the first time in history
that a Persian-American is running for such a high office.
Badiozamani is running as an independent. His agenda includes saving
California from bankruptcy through implementation of sound economic
policies, bringing honesty and transparency to the government,
and tackling the ever-increasing traffic problem.
We believe he
has a chance to win because at this special election, any candidate
who simply gets the highest number of votes will take the office.
Moreover, preliminary polls show that a great number of Californians
who are dissatisfied with the present government desire to see
a fresh face, someone who is honest, someone who is not a politician.
Badi Badiozamani has a Master’s degree in
Public Administration and a Ph.D. degree in Political Science.
He has lived in California
for over 22 years. He has served on California Governor’s
Joint Venture Advisory Board, city of San Diego’s International
Affairs Board where he was Vice Chairman and the head of Cultural & Economic
Exchange Committee. He presently serves on San Diego’s Small
Business Advisory Board.
He is a member of National Writers Union,
PEN USA, and American Translators Association. His book, Iran & America:
Rekindling a Love Lost, will be published in the fall. He has written
numerous articles in Persian and English and has been interviewed
by international media such as Voice of America, BBC and Radio
Badi, who believes his campaign will have many positive
effects for the Persian community in the United States is seeking
guidance and assistance in all aspects of campaign such as public
relations, media relations, making banners and signs, voter registration,
grass root efforts and precinct walking and fund raising.
