‘I've known Shukoor for 14 years and have never met such a versatile, hard working and passionate individual. I have interacted with lots of public officials and businessmen, but Shukoor stands out among all of them, selfless with a passion to serve. I've seen his drive and willingness to help anyone who comes in contact with him. Shukoor's skill, expertise, motivation and drive are badly needed today.’, adds Feroz Padder, MD, FACC Padder Health Services, LLC, Laurel.
Shukoor runs his own IT consulting company and knows the daily challenges faced by small businesses. Meeting a payroll and providing healthcare for employees are just two areas where he intends to apply his business experience in serving the residents of District 23A. His involvement as a Board Member of the Bowie Business Innovation Center is one example of how he brings an innovative approach towards creating jobs and supporting small business.
Among the key areas he will focus on during this campaign: pursuing a jobs-creation agenda, supporting public education, encouraging innovative approaches to address transportation issues, and promoting government transparency initiatives. He firmly believes in positioning District 23A as a premiere location for growing existing businesses and attracting new ones.
‘It will be refreshing to see a delegate from our district (23A) in Annapolis who is not deeply aligned with special interests and political bosses. Shukoor is by nature a problem solver and looks at challenges as an opportunity. I urge you to Google "Shukoor Ahmed" and learn about his candidacy and vote for him.’ requests James McLaughlin, Bowie.
Shukoor obtained his Masters in Public Policy from American University. He and his wife Nabeela, a pharmacist. Their two daughters attend Eleanor Roosevelt & Bowie High Schools.

Democrat Candidate for Maryland House of Delegates, District 23A
Shukoor is an example of the American dream being alive and well. He came to this country as an immigrant from India a little over 18 years ago, with just $500 in his pocket. Since then he has been able to start a family with his wonderful wife, get a graduate degree, and build his own company from the ground up.
Before coming here, Shukoor’s parents instilled the value of getting an education, which is why upon arrival, he completed his Bachelors in Information Systems (he later went on to complete his Masters in Public Policy from American University). He then worked in the travel industry where he learned the basics of customer-service. This is also where he was able to hone his listening skills, believe him, the only thing worse than getting your flight cancelled is dealing with the person who just had his flight cancelled.
