Sterling, Virginia: Indian-American Puja Khanna kickstarted her campaign on November 19, 2022, for Dulles District Supervisor. The event was held at Mela Indian restaurant, where elected representatives and officials in Virginia praised Khanna’s achievements and promised their support to her candidacy.

Khanna told News India Times, “I am running to bring change to Dulles District. It is time for the district to have representation that reflects the values and demographics of its residents. The district needs a new and forward-leaning vision to move forward.”

She noted her win would make history as she is the first Indian-American woman to run for the Office in Loudoun County.

“It’s a challenge being an immigrant seeking the American Dream without the inherent privileges afforded to some who were born with it,” said Khanna, an immigrant, and a mom of three children, who foresees encountering challenges during the campaign.

Indian-American Virginia State Delegate, Suhas Subramanyam, said, “last year, when I needed people to knock on doors and help me get elected Puja was there, and she was there helping organize people when Jennifer Wexton needed help.”

Pointing out that most of his district is run by Republican supervisors, Subramanyam vowed, “So one of my goals is to make every single supervisor and school board member in my district a Democrat.”

Virginia elected representatives Senator John Bell, Senator Jennifer Boysko, Ashburn District Supervisor, Mike Turner, Loudoun County Chair of the Board of Supervisors, Phyllis Randall, Delegate Kathy Tran, Leesburg Council Vice-Chair, Fernando Martinez, and Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney, Buta Biberaj also spoke at the event, where school board members Atoosa Reaser, Harris Mahedavi along with Khanna’s family and supporters were also present.
