This afternoon @francisforraleigh announced that he will enter a runoff to become the mayor of Raleigh, and today I was proud to stand with him. Throughout the campaign I had the privilege of working alongside Charles, which has allowed me to see who he truly is. In person, Charles Francis is the same, strong gentleman that we as citizens have come to know. Charles is committed to the success of our strong city. He isn't only a great candidate for Raleigh — he is the best candidate for Raleigh. Like me, Mr. Francis is determined to put the people of Raleigh first. My campaign made the citizens of Raleigh a priority and I will continue to do so by supporting Charles for mayor. Join me in supporting Charles Francis, because in order #RaiseRaleigh, we must raise the office of the mayor.

What I love about Raleigh is that there are many different people working to make our community a wonderful city to live in. The diversity of cultures beliefs, and the wisdom of many generations help to make Raleigh a better place. We need to come together to make Raleigh more inclusive, safe, and healthy. When the individuals who make up our community thrive, Raleigh thrives. #VoteBaloch
Where my basketball obsession began: Method Road Community Center I went to elementary and middle school right around the corner from Method at Al-Iman School. That's where my passion for playing basketball was founded through my coach Spring April Showers (who is still supporting me by poll greeting). How cool! It was at the Islamic Association of Raleigh I worked with various interfaith groups, founded youth leadership programs, coached basketball teams, and taught 4th grade to further my want to serve the community. The greatest part is all of these awesome places are located right in the heart of NC State University where I completed my undergrad. My heart still belongs to the Wolfpack regardless of the amount of times it's been broken by our Cardiac pack. This historic community is the reason I have a passion for wanting to do better for the city of Raleigh. Raleigh - you have 4 and a half more hours to vote! #GOTV and take 3 friends with you!

Where it all began: Wildwood Forest Elementary School I grew up right here in this neighborhood and this is where I cast my first vote. I am the proud daughter of Pakistani immigrants and the oldest of 6 kids (providing me with natural leadership experience). I've spent many afternoons walking my siblings to and from school and playing basketball in the park. Growing up in such a close knit community really help me understand the importance of building each other up! Get out and vote today! Look up your polling location #ZBJourneyToThePolls
