Here are a few photos from our campaign kick-off event. Truly appreciate everyone who came out and supported my race for Delegate. Grateful to live, work, and now run for office in the 40th District. Thank you for all of your love and support!

Delegates Like to Eat, Too

Sanjay Thomas, North American Division

Sanjay is an insurance agent from Maryland representing the North American Division. When asked what he enjoys doing in his spare time, his answer is definitely out of the ordinary.

I’m trying to run for public office,” he says. “That’s kind of my hobby right now because I haven’t officially declared, but I’m just working the fundraising circuits and meeting people in the communities.” Sanjay will run for office in the Maryland House of Delegates out of the fortieth legislative district of West Baltimore. “That election is in 2018, and I’ll probably declare at the beginning of 2017,” he adds.

In his local church—Takoma Park in Takoma Park, Maryland—Sanjay serves as an elder, Sabbath school teacher, and youth mentor.

Now, in terms of culinary skills and food preferences, Sanjay confesses that he’s not so blessed in the kitchen. “The extent of my cooking is probably a bowl of cereal,” he laughs.

Having arrived in San Antonio just a few days prior to this writing, he says his days have already been so packed that he hasn’t been eating too much. His days have consisted of a good breakfast in his hotel, then a light lunch (of what so far has been a few tofu wraps from the café in the Grand Hyatt) en route to meetings. Sanjay, however, has enjoyed an exceptional pizza in San Antonio. “I went to what is supposed to be one of the best pizza places in he city,” he says, “Dough Pizzeria Napoletana, and it’s a bit of a drive out of the city, but it’s legit—as in certified by the Italian government. I went with the margherita pizza with imported mozzarella. I figured since I came all this way, I should go with the imported.”
