InfoGet To Know Sam.

Sam was raised and educated in Southwest Virginia. Growing up in a working class family, Sam attended Roanoke City, Roanoke County and Botetourt County Schools. After graduating from Lord Botetourt High School, he continued to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Roanoke College in Salem, VA.

After the atrocities of September 11, 2001, Sam believed that the best way to improve the world around him was through economic development because with quality jobs and adequate wages comes an improved quality of life, reduced violence, and a better future for our district. At 22, Sam completed a Masters Degree in International Business Administration from Hawaii Pacific University.

As a small business entrepreneur, Sam started several small businesses in women's fitness, tanning, movie rentals, and real estate. With his business background, Sam was recruited to begin a new medical sales and distribution firm in the Roanoke Valley. Sam Rasoul continued to wait for the day when he could fight for working families.

Joining Valley Character, Sam began working to improve character development in our youth around the region. Working with The Hope Fund, the Congressional candidate has helped to develop an avenue to provide a college education for poor refugees. In addition, participating with organizations such as the Williamson Road Business Association, The Kiwanis Club of Roanoke City, The Virginia Defense Force, and youth sports, he has stayed active in our community.

Sam and his wife, Layaly, now live in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, just outside of Roanoke in Botetourt County.

Getting Personal.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I am not a politician. In fact like many others, I am disgusted sometimes with the way our leaders carry themselves in Washington and for that reason I never really wanted to go into politics. I guess that is why I am here, to help change business as usual in Washington politics. I do not want to spend all of my time debating issues that are not relevant to the majority of people. Healthcare, education, and small business development are three issues we can all agree upon in the Sixth District of Virginia.

I am blessed to be married to a lovely, supporting wife, who agrees with the same personal family values that I do. I believe in rewarding those who have worked hard and helping others to help themselves.
