[Dearborn-Michigan, November 4, 2021]: The proud members of The American Arab & Muslim American Political Action Committee (AMPAC) would like to congratulate the winners of Tuesday’s historic general election that was held on November 2, 2021.

Citizens of Dearborn, Dearborn Heights and Hamtramck all elected an Arab-American as their mayor for the first time in history.  

AMPAC truly believes Dearborn and the surrounding cities have a bright future for years to come.  It reflects the American rich diversity.  AMPAC congratulates Dearborn’s Mayor-Elect Abdullah Hammoud, Hamtramck’s Mayor-Elect Dr. Amer Ghalib and Dearborn Heights’s Mayor-Elect Bill Bazzi. 

AMPAC extends its congratulations to all members’ incumbents and new members elected to City Council and the City Charter Commission in Dearborn and other cities.  AMPAC commends all the candidates who ran for public office during this election season. Running for public office takes huge commitment, hard work, and dedication. Their efforts helped shape the future of our cities.  

AMPAC would also thank its volunteers as well as other campaign volunteers who worked long days and weekends over the past few months and especially those who weathered the cold on election day Tuesday, to help get out the vote for not only their candidate, but the community as a whole.

We at AMPAC are pleased to see that the turnout at each election increase as well as a much higher turnout of the younger generation. Your vote is your voice and your voice was heard loud and clear Tuesday.
