#Sikh mayor charms #Hoboken, elected unopposed

Ravinder Singh Bhalla made history again when he was reelected unopposed as the Hoboken mayor this time around.When he first ran for the post in 2017, his campaign encountered racial undertones, including a doctored campaign fliers attacking him with the message “Don’t let TERRORISM take over our town!”That seems to have fizzled far away. Four years later, the fourth densest city in the country has elected him unopposed for a new four-year term. The 47-year-old lawyer was sworn in yesterday (2 Jan 2021).
