My name is Ahmed Shiil and I’m excited to announce my candidacy for Fargo City Commission. As a business owner and community advocate, I’ve seen and worked on many challenges that have impacted our community, all intensified by our global pandemic. In these difficult times, we need leadership who can work together to serve the people, and I have a skillset that I’m ready to put to work for the city of Fargo.
I have a strong track record in helping people get to work, and connecting them to community resources. Through my nonprofit work, I was able to help initiate services that helped employ hundreds of residents. As a co-owner of a travel nursing agency, and as a Senior Community Impact Manager at a large local nonprofit, I know all about getting resources to people who need them, whether it is filling the gaps in healthcare shortage or finding the right resources for many to gain career opportunities. I’m proud of the work I’ve done, and I’m ready to get to work for the residents of Fargo.
