As your next U.S. Senator, Dr. Alameel will fight for everyday Texans. In Washington, he will fight for the interests of Main Street over those of Wall Street. He will fight to protect a woman’s right to choose and to enforce equal pay for equal work. He will ensure that Texas keeps its promise to our senior citizens by protecting Social Security and Medicare. He will also work towards fair and humane comprehensive immigration reform and the passage of the DREAM Act.
David Alameel believes in the American Dream because he has lived it himself. He came to America when he was just twenty years old leaving behind his large Lebanese Christian family. David pumped gas and worked in the fields to help his family. He proudly served in the U.S. Army, then worked his way through college and received a dental degree from the University of Texas. Later he moved to Dallas and founded a network of dental clinics that grew into a multi-million dollar enterprise.
In recent years he sold that business and has become a highly successful investor and an expert in financial markets. He is a strong critic of Wall Street and says we must reform current policies “that subsidize big banks and corporations and hurt the middle class.”
Dr. Alameel and Martha, his wife of 40 years, have two grown children, Mark and Nadya, and one grandson. Dr. Alameel has served on various civic boards and organizations in the Dallas area. He is an active philanthropist, with an emphasis on educational opportunity.
