Ammar Campa-Najjar has spent his life in public service, and he’s running for California’s 50th District on the promise that he will not accept any corporate donations to better focus on the people he hopes to serve. Ammar was the Deputy Regional Field Director for President Obama’s re-election campaign and served as part of the White House team that selected letters from Americans for the President to read daily.
As a representative for California’s 50th District, Ammar hopes to focus on economic growth, immigration reform, universal healthcare, and sustainable environmental policy to Washington.
Ammar, the son of an immigrant, once worked as a church janitor and graduated from San Diego State University. His passion and hard work earned him a spot overseeing Southern California’s grassroots campaign efforts. He’s also worked as a labor department official, leading the Office of Public Affairs for Employment and Training Administration where he worked to double and diversify apprenticeship programs. Currently, Ammar owns his own business that assists non-profits in competing and earning contracts.Ammar's Website
