About Saqib Ali

I was born on January 21, 1975 in Chicago to a South Asian immigrant family that had arrived in America a few years earlier.

I have lived in Montgomery County since 1991 when I moved here to attend college. I received Bachelors & Masters degrees in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, College Park.

My wife Susan and I have been married since 1999. As newly-weds we lived in Montgomery Village. Now we live in beautiful and quiet community in West Gaithersburg. We were blessed with the arrival of baby Sofia in May, 2006. My parents, also long-time Montgomery County residents, live nearby. I'm employed as a Software Engineer.

I have been deeply involved in Montgomery County politics and civic life for years:

  I am the Co-Chairperson of the Longdraft Road Coalition (www.longdraft.com).
  I am the first elected President of the District 39 Democratic Club.
  I was the Legislative District 39 Co-ordinator for the Howard Dean presidential campaign in 2003 & early 2004.
  I worked full-time for Congressman Chris Van Hollen's General Re-election campaign in 2004.
  I was Co-Chair of the Montgomery County Democratic Spring Ball in 2004 which raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Montgomery County Democratic Party.

I am a passionate community advocate and urge all my friends and neighbors to be actively involved in the affairs of their communities, schools, county, state and federal governments. In my spare time I enjoy playing basketball and bicycling.
