Dr. Stanley Onye

ABOUT ME

I am a Democrat, who has the right background, professional competence, ability to drive the process, proven track record, academic qualifications, knowledge of how and where to access funds for various projects.

My vision is to help build a vibrant, smart 25th district corridor that optimizes the opportunities of abundant skills and technology for the continued growth of the state, county, and district economic and social environment.

As you know, I am running for the seat because I believe sincerely that the current occupants of the position, have not done enough for the constituents, the District, and the county to deserve your vote.

Enough is enough, for we can do better. We need someone who will listen to everybody, not just a few. In me, you will get someone who will listen and solve your problems regardless of your community.

I am an everyday person who welcomes the challenge of leadership, well equipped to make tough choices and do the hard work that is required of a delegate.

I have done several jobs from being a professor teaching at various universities to being a director, working with DC Government in various capacities and a community leader helping to champion various community-related causes.

"Let's make 25th District, through my transformational leadership style, an environmentally sound, business-friendly, family-oriented, happy community, laden with good schools, and where seniors are accorded respect."
