Currently, he is in the process of starting his Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (online) at Texas Tech University in the Spring of 2022.
“Gus” is a conservative Republican
and has actively been an integral part of the Lubbock County Republican Party
for a number of years now. In 2020, he got elected as the chairman for Precinct 27 (Lubbock County GOP)
and a National Delegate (Congressional District 19)
to vote as a National Delegate for President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence in the Republican National Convention 2020.
According to Gulrez, America’s values of Faith, Family, Freedom, Limited-Government, Pro-Life, and Capitalistic-Free Enterprise model inspired him and his family to move to the United States. In 2020, he played an instrumental role in registering thousands of Republican voters in the State of Texas. He is an associate member of the Lubbock Area Republican Women and a member of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly - Lubbock chapter. He is also actively involved with Lubbock’s Project Destiny and Conservative Action Network.
Being a believer and a pro-life advocate, it was the current city leadership’s pro-abortion and anti-life approach that inspired Gulrez to step-up and decide to run for Mayor. Gulrez wants to be a voice for the voiceless - the unborn babies.
Along with the pro-life movement, Gulrez has also been involved with several nonprofit community initiatives for several years. He has been a team captain with the American Heart Association raising funds for this noble cause. He has been an active fundraiser, along with ASHHC, for the South Plains Food Bank. His fundraising campaign also includes helping Ronald McDonald Charities of Lubbock, Boys & Girls Scouts of America - Lubbock, Lubbock Monterey - AMBUCS, and so on. For his outstanding contribution to the community, Gulrez received the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional of the Year (Twenty Under-40) award in 2016. During this phase, Gulrez was the Regional Director - Career Services & Externships at Vista College (Lubbock & Amarillo campuses). Under his leadership at this college, he was able to secure in-field job placements for approximately 2,500 Vista College graduates.
Gulrez is a former professional athlete. During his teens in India, he played first-class professional cricket for almost a decade. In the US, he represented the Dallas County Cricket Club in the North Texas Cricket Processional League for a few seasons as well. His other sporting passion is Golf. He has competed in 3 US-Open golf local qualifiers so far, one Texas State Open qualifier, and in the city championships. He continues to utilize golf in numerous tournaments all year around that help raise funds for community causes.
Gulrez has been married once. Unfortunately, that relationship ended in a divorce. In the near future, he hopes to find the right woman with whom he plans to settle down with. He comes from a family of successful physicians. His father retired as a renowned physician with the state health services and his uncle is a prominent physician with the local Covenant Health System. Unfortunately, his mother passed away (at the age of 58 yrs) in 2018 due to a spinal cord disease called Ossified Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (OPLL). His mother’s demise, and his grandparents' demise over the past few years, has had a deep impact on his life and that has inspired him to help others. This has been the key reason that he wants to build a hospital in East Lubbock. Gulrez's other family members live in Lubbock (TX); Chandigarh (India); and his remaining extended family is spread out across the globe.
Gulrez has numerous years of work experience in healthcare administration and higher education administration. During the COVID peak in 2020, he was the Administrator at the famous medical practice, Lubbock Family Medicine, where he was actively involved in taking care of thousands of patients. During this time, he was involved in helping our community by extending Tele-medicine and drive-thru clinics to patients throughout the region. He humbly states that during this time he never took a day off and was never late to work so he could take care of his clinic and patients when they needed him the most. Through his current business of home health & hospice care, he continues to provide quality care to patients within West Texas. In his earlier years, Gulrez has been a successful intern in healthcare administration and human resource management at Lubbock's prestigious UMC Health System.
Gulrez is a proud and patriotic American. He believes this to be one of the greatest gifts that God has granted him. He stands for the right values and wants to provide the great city of Lubbock the conservative, God-driven leadership that it needs. According to him, “When God gives you a Vision, He gives you the Provision as well.” His platform for this race includes the following:
- Pro- Life
- Pro- Law Enforcement & First-Responders (higher pay for first-responders including Lubbock Police)
- Less Government
- Less Taxes
- Hospital in East Lubbock
- Pro-Business & Development
- Pro-Farmers & Ranchers
Last, but not the least, Gulrez wants to take out Planned Parenthood from Lubbock within the first year of his administration.
