A STATE SENATOR FOR ALL OF US
MD Rahman immigrated to the United States with little more than the American Dream in his back pocket. Twenty-five years later, he owns several businesses, creates hundreds of jobs each year, and has employed over 5,000 people.
Success did not come easy. His first job was working as a waiter. So was his second. And his third. But he worked hard, saved what he could, and from that humble start, eventually created a small import/export company. Today he is the CEO of several businesses in healthcare, construction, and real estate investment.
Even before he became a citizen, MD began to give back to the country that had taken him in. His charitable work found its focus during the pandemic: MD secured and distributed masks and PPE for our community, 1000s of boxes of food for families, and his COVID vaccination clinics through the Bangladesh Community Center saved lives.
MD lives in Manchester with his wife Yelena and their 3 children.
MD's passion is giving back to the community. In addition to his charity work and COVID clinics, he serves on the Governor’s Hate Crime Advisory Council, the Manchester Charter Revision Commission, and the Property Maintenance Board of Appeals.
He is Co-Chair of the Asian American and Pacific Island (AAPI) Democratic Caucus and founder of the Bangladesh Bhaban Community Center in Manchester, CT.
MD is the Vice Chair of the Central CT Education Foundation, former member of the 2020 CT Census Advisory Board, former President of the Centennial Lions Club, and currently serves on the Board of the Central CT Chamber of Commerce.
