Bothell, WA – August 1, 2011 – First-time political candidate, Darshan Rauniyar, running for Congress in Washington’s 1st Congressional District, announced today that his campaign raised over $30,000 in the month of July.

 

“We have received donations from $5 to $1,000, and from 18 to 84-year-olds”, said Rauniyar. “I am proud and humbled that over 200 people are excited about my candidacy and have donated to my campaign, and many more have begun to give their time and energy. We are building a grassroots campaign, and this month has seen us lay the foundation for a successful congressional race.”

 

“It has been extremely gratifying to see my message about restoring the American Dream resonate with supporters” said Rauniyar. “People understand the need to reflect American values and principles in our policies. They want new and strong leadership to get our economy back on track, our people back to work, and to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities I’ve had to realize the American Dream. We must rebuild our manufacturing base, and find a dedicated funding stream for education to put America on a path towards recovery.”

“As the only non-politician, and a first-time candidate, I am happy with our start”, said Rauniyar. “Much of this first month was spent learning and setting the foundation for our campaign. Now, I expect to be able to focus more of my energy on fundraising and continue to talk with voters about their issues. I will run a grassroots, from the ground up campaign.”
Rauniyar was raised in Kathmandu, Nepal. He came to America in 1988 in order to study Electronics Engineering at the Oregon Institute of Technology. He later received his Masters in Business Administration from Portland State University. He has held various senior-level positions in technology companies, and later went on to be a successful entrepreneur and businessman. He has been active in the politics for over a decade, and has campaigned for many local, state and federal candidates. He is an elected Democratic Precinct Committee Officer, and has served on the Executive Committees of both the 1st Legislative District Democrats and the Snohomish County Democrats. He is a member of the Snohomish County Human Rights Commission and the Snohomish County Parks Advisory Board. He has served as a Board member for numerous non-profit organizations.
