Congrats to the first Muslim elected leader in North Texas

Amir Omar is the first Muslim elected leader in North Texas. Mr Omar had to dodge some major mudslinging due to his  ethnicity (Palestinian and Iranian) and his religion. An article here goes into more detail for us. Because of such a feat,  I will let it slide that he’s a conservative.  Besides, he has some wise words to share with us.

“Regardless of my audience, my message has been the same: How are we going to solve these issues?” said Omar, 37. “Religion shouldn’t be a factor in the way a city councilman should approach his job.”
