"I haven't really digested what happened last night," Hammoud says. "But I'm just humbled by the opportunity to give back to my hometown. It's everything. This is the greatest privilege of my life to date, the opportunity to really give back to the community that gave me and my family everything, my parents who immigrated here searching for financial and social freedoms. As a product of this community, went to public schools here and college here and is now growing a family here, I just look forward to doing what we can, to roll up our sleeves and help improve the lives of our residents."
