Aftab Pureval was born and raised in Southwest Ohio and is the son of first-generation Americans who came to the United States to give themselves and their family more opportunity. Aftab serves as the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts and is the first Democrat to hold this office in more than 100 years. After attending law school, he volunteered in a domestic violence clinic to protect battered women before becoming a special assistant federal prosecutor working with the FBI to prosecute crimes against children. Aftab had a successful business career as well, working as the global brand attorney for Olay.
Aftab is committed to reforming the rigged system in Washington that’s leaving too many Ohioans behind. By rejecting corporate PAC money in his campaign, Aftab is proving that he’s running to fight for the interests of families in the district — not corporate special interests.
