EXCLUSIVE: Why Max Skolnik Should Be Elected To D.C. Council

Growing up in a small, working class community, his parents labored in a glass factory to provide for their four children.

At just 12 years old, Taj began working after his dad lost his job; he would mow lawns around town to help his parents make ends meet. As he got older, he picked up other jobs and worked his way through high school.

Taj worked his way through Harvard by cleaning dormitory bathrooms and sweeping staircases, among other odd jobs. Taj graduated with Honors after making the Dean’s List every semester and went on to receive his law degree from Harvard Law School.

Today, Taj is an attorney at the international law firm of Fish & Richardson and has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Texas Super Lawyers magazine.

The story of Taj’s life of progress is the story he envisions for Texas’s 30th Congressional District and our country.
