Dear Hoboken Democratic Committeeperson:
Congratulations on your recent election as a Committeeperson of the Hoboken Democratic Committee (HDC). Many of us had spirited races, and every candidate for the HDC should be congratulated on their commitment to serving our community.
Now that the election is over, it is time for us to work together for the benefit of Hoboken and the Democratic Party. To this end, I am writing to respectfully request your support for my nomination for the position of Chairman of the HDC. As I enter my third year of service as a Committeeman, I have learned that we, as Committeepersons, are the eyes and ears of our local neighborhood. Our specialized knowledge of our local districts provides us the potential to work with local government officials to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. If elected Chair of the party, I will actively work with all of you to learn more about the concerns of your district, so we can address those concerns head on this year.
As Chair, I would also seek to expand the base of our party, by reaching out to those who are unaffiliated and even Republican, and seeking to increase the number of registered and active Democratic residents in Hoboken. There are many issues on every level of local government that impact all of us, irrespective of party affiliation. The Democratic Party of Hoboken will advance its own mission if we can demonstrate that we are improving the lives of all residents in Hoboken.
I thank you for your consideration and look forward to working with you in the future.
Ravi S. Bhalla
Assemblyman Ruben Ramos Chair, Hoboken Democratic Committee
Honorable Dawn Zimmer Mayor, City of Hoboken
