NORWALK – A coalition of Indian Americans endorsed Mayor Richard Moccia’ re-election bid Wednesday night at a campaign event at the Aladin Indian Bistro on Westport Avenue.

“Fiscally, he has done extremely well in terms of the management of Norwalk,” said Dr. Thomas Abraham, who hosted the event. “I think if he continues to do so, Norwalk will do quite well.”

State House Republican Leader Larry Cafero and Senate Republican Leader John McKinney were at the event to lend their support.

“I am proud to join a strong coalition of Indian Americans in support of Dick Moccia,” McKinney said. “As business owners and community leaders, they understand that Mayor Moccia is a fiscally responsible leader who is creating jobs and growing jobs in Norwalk.”

“These men and women are business owners that understand and appreciate the value of education, hard work, family and fiscal responsibility,” Cafero said.

Moccia’s fiscal policy was cited as among the main factors uniting the Indian American group behind the mayor. Biru Sharma called him “a true embodiment of the Reagan Republican.”

“He is trying to bring employment, technology and job creation to Norwalk instead of dividing the city and that is what you need to do as mayor,” Sharma said. “What is important to Indian Americans is the same for everybody.”

    Figures there’d be no comments in an article devoted to support for Moccia. Why do I keep reading this blob? Oops, I guess I meant blog.

    Be careful Norwalk, Indian Americans are going to get everything they want, and taxpayers will pay for it !!!! Half the Indian Americans don’t even live in Norwalk and were going to pay the bill.

    Moccia finally got a thumbs up from someone.

    Oh i’m sorry its only the unions that get everything they want with endorsements.lol

    Gotta wonder what he did to get this endorsement. This is a group of well educated professionals. How many actually promised a vote ? He shoulda retired and avoided the embarrassment of a big loss. Hasn’t he already qualified for a City pension with full medical coverage ?

    Sorry Oldtimer, it’s only Harry Rilling who is only running for the pension. Unlike Harry, Mayor Moccia actually cares about this city.

    Its an interesting contrast here – City unions seeking politiical support for higher salaries whose members live mostly outside the City endorsing the Democrat Police Chief versus resident professionals and businessmen who actually live in the City and pay taxes to support the highest paid municipal labor force of any City in CT.

  7. Don’t Panic

    It’s a nice photo op of business owners who have not been sued by the Moccia administration.
