Hassan has lived in Collin County for 7 years, starting shortly after completing his undergraduate degree in engineering. While being politically aware even before voting age, the last few election cycles have catalyzed in him sense of personal responsibility for our democracy and furthered a passion for effective policy driven by science and data. He has used this passion to spread public awareness of good policy proposals, and petition elected representatives to support them. Hassan hopes to grow these efforts and use them to make a positive impact on our community.
