Some Democratic Party leaders in New Jersey extended their support to Indian-American candidate Mahesh Bhagia in his run for Edison Township Mayor.

At the March 18, 2021 meeting held at Pines Manor, leading party members endorsed the Edison Democratic Team, reported.

State Senator Patrick Diegnan and Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak, as well as Edison Councilman Joe Coyle, were at the meeting.

Bhagia received the largest number of votes last month at a meeting of the Edison Demoratic Organization, over other candidates in the running.

“I’ve known Mahesh for the past five years,” Diegnan is quoted saying in the news report, adding that the Democratic team of Mahesh Bhagia, and his running mates Tom McCann, Shannon Peng, and Sparshil Patel, was an “easy, easy thing for us to support.”

“We are part of something that’s so great that’s happening here” quotes Karabinchak saying at the event, adding,
“One of the people who is going to take that leadership and move us forward is Mahesh Bhagia, who will be the next Mayor of Edison.”

Bhagia thanked those present for their support.

“I am excited to run alongside Senator Diegnan, Assemblyman Karabinchak, and Assemblyman Stanley and together we will make sure Edison gets its fair share of resources from the State,” Bhagia is quoted saying.

“Edison, the 5th largest town in New Jersey, is home to residents from a multitude of backgrounds. It is an example of New Jersey’s diversity at its best. It is therefore particularly important that the next Mayor and Councilmembers for the township are competent, compassionate, and qualified to represent all of the township’s 100,000 residents. The team of Bhagia, McCann, Peng, and Patel will do just that,” community leader Peter Kothari, said in a statement sent to Desi Talk/News India Times.
