Sam Nejabat is a successful small businessman who is running for San Diego City Council District 1 to “give back” to the community that has been so good to him and his family. Sam grew up in San Diego, attended UC Berkeley and Dartmouth College, worked in the Obama Administration and is presently the President of SJN Properties.
Just recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom appointed Sam to the Board of Directors that oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Sam is the son of immigrants who came to the US in 1979, fleeing persecution. When Sam's parents arrived in the United States, they had less than $1,000 in their pockets, yet with hard work and determination, both attended medical school. His parents achieved the American Dream of a comfortable life for themselves and a promising future for their son.
Sam is also the founder of the LN Foundation, which has recently focused on addressing the issue of homelessness by providing aid, customized LN Foundation backpack homeless kits, and by partnering with local shelters and community centers.
Sam was a five-month summer intern to former Senator Barbara Boxer and worked in the White House during the Obama administration in 2015.
"I am deeply concerned about Homelessness, Affordable Housing and Climate Change. On the City Council I will fight for neighborhoods; I will work hard to protect our beaches, coast and air from pollution. I will strive to build a future that gives every San Diego family the opportunity to participate in our region's growth and prosperity."
