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.”
