A Message from Ali Saleh.
My name is Ali Saleh. I am a lifelong resident of Southeast Los Angeles County, a father, a city council member, a dedicated government reformer, and a candidate for State Senate.
I am the son of Lebanese immigrants. My family moved to southeast Los Angeles County in the early 70s to flee the human and economic devastation of civil war. So, I learned at an early age to love and respect democracy.
Seven years ago, I also learned the true meaning of democracy.
“I will work hard to bring good government reforms to the State Capitol.”
- Councilmember Ali Saleh
Our local government was riddled with corruption. The city of Bell was my hometown and I couldn’t sit back and allow our elected officials and city administrators to steal from the taxpayers. So, I co-founded an organization called BASTA or Bell Association to Stop the Abuse but also means ‘Enough is enough’ in Spanish, which is how we all felt. My fellow reformers and I were successful in recalling the corrupt council members and city administrators.
Thankfully they all went to jail for stealing from the people. While that is a great accomplishment and I am proud of those achievements, my real story in public service truly started when I was elected to the Bell City Council.
This website will tell you more about my record and how I intend to bring good government reforms to the state capitol.
