My name is Amin Karim and I am running for McHenry County Treasurer. I’m NOT a professional politician and I don’t know how to make windy speeches. I’m a straight shooter – an honest, hardworking ordinary citizen who plays by the book.
No Politics, No Big Talk, just Honest Public Service!
I am a 1st generation immigrant who came in this country as an undergrad student in 1980, and I’m thoroughly familiar with and have first-hand knowledge of the struggle of both the students and the parents in meeting their financial obligations and the hardship they endure. Now in my 60s, and some 40 years later, I am still dealing with the same challenges but now for my children. I have 3 of my own, pursuing university degrees, while one is out of university qualifying as an attorney. I have three grandchildren, and I have been living in Crystal Lake for the past 20 years.
Why I’m running for office?
I am running for office because I am tired of hearing and watching bad news on TV every day! I am tired of hearing how our nation is divided more than ever: neighbors don’t talk to neighbors because of distrust, people confined at home because of fear, parents feeling unsafe sending children to school, or leaving them in the library, and most people living in isolation – and that is why I am running. I’m running for office because I want to share my voice and I want to be heard. I want to contribute and not complain, and I want to encourage others to do so as well. It is important that we all participate in our election process and work together and be united as a nation. I believe in "Solidarity".
As a first-generation immigrant and a minority candidate, I want my voice to be heard and echoed for the people who cannot speak and suffer in silence. As Malala Yousafzai says, “I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard”. We are but just a melting pot and we represent people of all Color, Race, Faith, and Gender, and we represent ourselves as a one nation – we are but indivisible! Our country is more divided than ever, and we need to put our differences aside and re-build our community and our nation. “I believe in Solidarity, and Solidarity is our Power!
I believe, we need to take care of our family, our community, our State, and our Country first before to take the role of Big Brother. We need to be united and be Active, and we need to Voice our opinions at all levels in order to progress. We cannot stay divided and self-inflict ourselves. Only through “Solidarity” we will rebuild our strength and lead the World as a nation and set examples for our children. We need to Act Local but Think Global.
“This race is all about US” - our Tax money, Economic Growth, Labor’s Rights, Women Rights, Community Safety, Children Education and their Future, Green and Renewable Energy, and we can do it only through aligns. “Solidarity is our Power!"
Me, running for office is NOT just about me, it is about you and me, our family, our community, our Nation, and our future generation. We need to be united and work together more than ever. We need to step-up and share our voice, demand our rights, and we need to do it now! We cannot let others make choice for US!
The County Treasurer Office has not witnessed much change in the last 20 years - and I am about to make that change! I’m result oriented and I believe in process. I blame the System and not the People. "Solidarity” is our Power and with your support I can do it!
On November 8th, Vote your Conscience, Vote your Values!
“Thank You”! “Thank You” for your kind and warm support. God bless you all! – Ameen.
