During the 2008 Presidential election I was working as one of satellite campaign manager for Obama and the Democratic Party in Greater Kansas City area. My business suite was one of the Campaign Office for Obama in South Kansas City, Grandview and Raytown areas. My voluntary political involvement and recently the active involvement in the Missouri Democratic Party Asian American Caucus have brought us an unparalleled leadership in the great state Missouri.
Since the incorporation of “MDPAAC” I have been attending all most every single events here in the Jackson county as well as all over statewide Missouri. While, I was asked what is your goal, my answer was “I want such an organization which will stimulate an active interest in Asian Americans relating to Political and Governmental affairs to facilitate Asian American participation in the Missouri Democrat Party so that it will help to promote the ideas and principles of the Democratic Party, and to encourage and seek Asian American candidates for public office and explain positions of other political candidates to Asian American voters. Not only bringing the leaderships but the Caucus shall also work with the Asian American Communities to bring their issues to the state and national political attention. We are the Asian- American Communities living in United States of America and exercising our Rights in the Main Stream Political Process. I would love to give back to the community and serve the people in our society.”
I was born and raised in the Rajapur Village , under Rupsha Upazila in the City of Khulna  the divisional headquarters of Khulna District in Bangladesh. Bangladesh  is a south-east-Asian country adjacent to India, Nepal and Burma. After graduating high school I had attend ed the Bangladesh National University and earned my first Bachelor of Science Honors degree in Biolog in 1996. While attending National University of Bangladesh, I became one of the very prestigious student leaders in the Southern Division of Bangladesh. I was one of the three vice chairs of Bangladesh National Student Forum of Bangladesh “Jatio Party” which was the concurrent governmental in power political party of Bangladesh. My student leadership quality and closely involvement of political activities is the key motivation now days that what I think.
My student Politics and such high scale political involvement inspired me to earning his 2nd Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Government from the National University in 1997. From 1996-1999 I was hired as a High school Science teacher and taught in a Divisional Police School in Bangladesh where my home town is in Khulna Bangladesh. In 1997-1998 I went to a Law school but was not able to finish it up due to the teaching job and the political activities. In 1999 I went back to school to finishing up his Masters of Science Degree in Biology. I was attending his (M. Sc) graduate course in Dhaka College, College of Arts of science of Bangladesh National University. In March 2000, MD Alam relocated to USA and in June of 2000 he joined in the United States Army. I had completed my Basic Training and AIT from Ft. Knox, KY and Ft. Lee VA respectively and was stationed in Germany. During my six (6) years on active duty, I was awarded the following medals and Ribbons: Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, Army National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Army Overseas Ribbon and many letters of Recommendations as well as many different awards.
I was very active within the ACS (Army Community Services), FRG (Family Readiness Groups) and Army Community Ethnic Enrichment Programs. I was one of the highly motivated and dedicated NCO and was awarded an Honorable Discharge with the status of VA PTSDE. In 2005 I finished his 1st Graduate Degree in Military science. In 2007 I earned my 2nd Graduate degree in MIS (Computer Information System). I am currently working on my Ph. D leading M.A in Mathematics Education and secondary Mathematics Teaching Certification at UMKC. My long term goal is to bring hope to our children a better Mathematical Achievement and have a movement in Mathematics and education in-term of Curriculum designing. I believe in “Trans-formative Intellectuality, Force for Change, Hope over Fear and Education For a Lifetime of Learning”. I beleive Vote for Change and make it all blue together.
I came from a family where education is the key motivation and vital factor of succession of life. my dad was a University graduate with the degree of Veterinary Science and worked for the Bangladesh Government for 23 years. While at his job only at the age of 55 in 2002 my dad passed away. My both mother and father came from farmer’s family. My elder brother Shere is also residing in Kansas City and the Organizing Secretary of the MDPAAC. Shere is also working in his M.A in Mathematics at UMKC. My Mom and mother-in-law also residing in Kansas City, MO. my younger brother is established and residing in Madrid, Spain who has a graduate degree in Library and Information Science, and he is also involved in Politics in Spain. MD’s elder sister is working for a telecommunication company in Bangladesh and she has a Masters of Arts degree in English.
I am using my multi-cultural and dynamic strategy to rebuild Missouri Democratic Party under the unique umbrella collaboration of Asian American Caucus. I think the next presidential election will be very challenging for Democratic Party, if really Louisiana Governor runs as the republican presidential candidate. Before that happen, Democratic Party has to rebuild from the grass-root level and need to be prepared to have strong battle in the election. MD thinks as Bobby is the 2nd generation of Indian immigrant, he would have lot more acceptance towards the mass immigrants from the Indian continent. That is why we have to work hard and create our grass-root level organizational chapters. I believe the Democratic Party should start working towards all educational institutes to have Young Democrats involvements. If we are not careful, and do not start working right now we will have a hard ship in the long run in near future. So, I am asking all Democrats to come in one point of view that we may have long term victory in the National Level and please join with us.

Priject # 1
Currently as I am working on Tony Singh Bill I like to share this Tony Singh Bill as my first and top most Projects. Tony Singh  was a 35 years old man got Robbed, Gunned Downed and Murdered in a 7-Eleven store while working in his very last shift. On March 17' 2010 Tony Singh was killed in the convienent store even after giving the money only $72.00 the Robber killed him with bloddy non-scence reasons. Tony was working in the 7-Eleven store as his part time job and he was going to start his next new full time job in the next day, but the last shift job took his Amnerican Dreams and his life and left tow young children behiend. Who is responsible to raise thses two kids Sonny (11) and Simran (9)? who will provide the support and family values to thses innocent kids?
Friends, Families and co-workers all are very shocked and hurts with this incident of Tony's death. As a friend of Tony Singh after his death we are trying to establishing his (Tony) Legacy in the state of Missouri as well as push forward to the United States of America. After Tony's death we found that the business corporation and the employer did fail to provide safety and security of Tony's life and as well as many more. Now as a community we are pushing for a new law to the Missouri General Assembly to make Tony Singh Bill as a State law which will help and guide the Retail business employees to making sfer working environment.
Here is the details of The Tony Singh Bill:

Project # 2
"Creating a Safe Community"
A safe community is very important and we all have to work hard to Creating a Safe Community. As I am residing in Kansas City I want to talk about Kansas City as one of the biggest 18th cities in the United States of America. Kansas City has the histroy of about 250 + some years  and it is one of the top cities in the Mid-west and heart land of the United States of America. In the past 10 yeras Kansas City started losing citizens from the urban core of the city and among the top few reasons crime and gangs are significantly high and the viloences are going higher and higher. As far as Government rules and regualtions goes, are fine but our media in Kansas city and the Politicians and Leaderships are not paying attention to the higher crime rate and or may be not publicly announcing our gang, crime and violence problems. However, robbery, shooting, killing and drugs are a everyday matter. If we don't take any action now it will come down and will bite us.
Since the killing and murdering a everyday matter in Kansas City, our elected officials are not worried about it and I really dont know why is that? As a concerned citizen I beleive it is our core responsibilities to be standing against these problems which causing our neighborhood and community at large more dangerous and vulnerable. After I have lost friend of mine named Tony Singh , it came to my attention that we do have a lot of crime and gangs problems. As a matter of fact after talking the Law Enforcement aggencies and Police Department I have found that yes we do have problems however we dont have enough resources, we do not have enough police forces that we need as a big city. The 2008 economic recesaion  certainly we are hurting our economy and we can not effort lossing our police forces on the other hand the gangs, drugs, gun shooting, killing, murdering, robbery and all the violences are just increasing in a higher rates. My question who is responsible for this problems?
As I beleive Neighborhood safety first and Creating a safe community is a must duty for us as a community that's why we the citizens of South Kansas City have pledge our support and are ready to clean up the above mentioned issues and problems. Along with the citizens I personally endorsed this project Creating a Safe Community and I am working day out day in to make a community based engaged effort to Creating a Safe Community starting here in Kansas City and then move all the way up to state wide.
