Salman Bhojani

Representative | Euless, TX

Born in Pakistan to a large family, Representative Salman Bhojani immigrated to Texas as a teenager. He worked three minimum wage jobs to help support his family–climbing the ladder from convenience store cashier to successful business owner, attorney, Euless City Councilman, and Mayor Pro Tem. In 2022, he made history when he became the first Muslim and first South Asian elected to the Texas Legislature. Rep. Bhojani serves on the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence and the House Committee on Pensions, Investments, and Financial Services. He also serves as the Chairman of the Criminal Procedure Subcommittee on the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence.

In his first term, Rep. Bhojani worked hard to deliver real progress for his community and all of Texas. He passed 10 bills out of the House, and 2 bills into law and worked with his colleagues to craft and pass transformative legislation—allocating $5 billion to retired educators pensions for a cost of living.
