(Crystal A. Proxmire, Sept. 25, 2017)
Novi, MI – Bin Qamruzzaman is one of three candidates running for Novi Mayor in the Nov. 7, 2017 election. Also on the ballot are Jason G. W. Dorsch and incumbent Mayor Bob Gatt.
Qamruzzaman is a former Marine who now works in engineering for Ford Motor Company, doing work with electric cars.
“When I was in the Marines, The first thing that they did is teach me how to be a leader. … I had mentors and stuff like that that guided me along the way,” Qamruzzaman said. “Throughout my life I’ve always been pushed into leadership position, whether in the engineering profession, college, or in the Marines. So I have a lot of managerial experience as well as working with stress, especially when you’re under fire in combat and stuff like that…. Having a science background gives you more of a logical mind, where you try to think of how action items are going to get you results, and what results are you going to get from those action items. What I want to bring in when I take the office is, Instead of just talking points, I want to break it down to what we have to do to get the task at hand it done.”
