December 7, 2012, Washington, D.C. - Robert "Bobby" Abtahi, former Dallas Plan Commissioner and former City of Dallas Community Prosecutor, recently announced his bid for a seat on the Dallas City Council. If successful, he will become the first Iranian American to serve on the council.
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Abtahi earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Texas and his JD from SMU Dedman School of Law. After graduating from law school, Abtahi went to work for the city of Dallas as a community prosecutor.
At City Hall, Abtahi worked to help rebuild deteriorating neighborhoods and was behind a popular program that used the National Guard to tear down drug houses. The program, which is a money saving initiative that the city continues to use, was recognized by the White House in January 2012 when it presented Abtahi with the MLK Drum Major Award for Community Service. After working for the city, Abtahi started his own private practice but continued to serve Dallas as a member of the city's plan commission.
Abtahi is one of four candidates running to represent District 14 on the Dallas City Council.

PAAIA and its connected PAC, the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC), recently had the opportunity to sit down with Abtahi to discuss his campaign for the Dallas City Council.
PAAIA/IAPAC: Why are you running for the Dallas City Council?
Abtahi: Being born and raised in Dallas, I have always been interested in making this city a better place.
...
Abtahi: The biggest challenge we will face is simply getting our message out to the voters.
...
Abtahi: We plan on having a very strong grassroots campaign. I plan on knocking on doors everyday until the May 2013 election. Direct mail, paid canvass crews, phone banks, and paid advertising will also be integral in getting my message out.
PAAIA/IAPAC: What are the fundraising goals of your committee?
Abtahi: Running a sophisticated campaign in the 21st century has become very expensive with costs for Websites, polling, opposition research, paid advertisement, canvass programs, data management and operations. Political insiders are speculating a successful run for District 14 could exceed $250,000. The first fundraising deadline is January 1, 2013 and this will be strong indicator of which campaign is the most serious about mounting a successful run.
PAAIA/IAPAC: What particular skills or experiences will you bring to the Dallas City Council?
Abtahi: I am most proud of my work of building coalitions both through my time as a community prosecutor and as a city planning commissioner.
...
Abtahi: In a city as large as Dallas there are a multitude of voices that must be heard.
...
Abtahi: North Texas is home to a large number of Iranian Americans.
...
Abtahi: Raising money.
