Nash Salami

It would not surprise us to hear more from Nash Salami in the future. He’s the 19-year-old former Birmingham Seaholm High School graduate (2019) who nearly won a seat on the Birmingham Public Schools Board of Education. Oakland Confidential spoke with Nash a couple of days after he lost his race by only 41 votes on Tuesday, November 3. The Bloomfield Township resident exudes a sense of maturity far beyond his age, whether on his decision not to file for a recount, or his assessment that COVID-19 personal contact limitations, as well the factor his age may have played with some voters, despite his campaign’s phone bank efforts, lit drops and direct mail pieces to potential voters. A political science major at Oakland University, Salami anticipates (“absolutely”) another run for some office in the future. He ranks his current attempt as a “tremendous achievement” and hopes that it has “encouraged young people to be part of the process.”
