Bloomfield, MI – Dr. Anil Kumar is the Democratic candidate for United States Congress for the 11th District.  He is running against Incumbent Dave Trott.  Independent (and former Republican Congressperson) Kerry Bentivolio.

The 11th District includes Auburn Hills, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Clawson, Commerce Twp, Farmington, Highland Township, Lake Angelus, Lyon Twp, Milford Twp, Northville, daytrip_jacq-n-dianeRochester Hills, South Lyon, Troy, Walled Lake, Waterford, West Bloomfield, White Lake Township and Wixom.

When asked why people should vote for him, Dr. Kumar said “People should vote for me because, one, I am not an established politician and the persons that ere in office, including Congress, their favorability is less than 20%.  And look at the last two or four years, especially for healthcare, especially for our seniors, especially for our patients who have deductibles of $10,000, $12,000. They have done nothing to change their lives. I want to come out of my very lucrative practice where I’m serving people, to do something [through] which I can make a change…The other reason they should vote for me is I have ideas that will work.”

In his interview with oc115, Dr. Kumar talked about his work as a urologist, his previous experience running for office, supporting immigration, and the need for the United States to do better with educating young people.
