SINHA for Congress : Who am I ?
My name is Viresh Sinha, and I live in Columbia, South Carolina. I immigrated to America in 1998 with a Computer Programming job. I worked in Grand Rapids, Michigan for little over a year, and then moved to Los Angeles, California where I spent several years before I finally settled down in Columbia, South Carolina.
In my 21 years of journey in United States, I have worked for Large Corporations in various roles as an IT professional, and I also started a few small businesses including the one, most dear to my heart, a preschool in St. Andrews in Columbia, South Carolina.
I have been thinking about joining Politics for quite some time, but could not overcome my own objections like color of my skin, my accent etc. But this year was the year of calling, and I took the pledge to run for US congress south Carolina district two, the office which is currently occupied by Joe Wilson.
Like they say when you fall in love , you fall from head , and start thinking with your heart. If I think with my head, I can’t win this election, but I am thinking with my heart, and I know, I cannot loose. Victory is what you define for yourself, I am very clear, I want to leave a better world for my son, I want to send the elevator down for the next generation.
So as I said, I have taken the plunge, and I need your support. Please visit my website http://www/VoteSInha.org and consider donating to my campaign so that we can bring the change we seek together.
