When I moved to Jersey City 4 ½ years ago I was amazed at how much my new neighbors cared. Jersey City folk take being a good neighbor and a good citizen to a whole new level. They are ready to roll up their sleeves and pitch in at a moment’s notice. Giving back is at their core. This is how I was raised as the daughter of an Elizabeth, NJ, city councilman back in the 60s and early 70s and so I felt immediately at home.
One of the very first people I met once I had settled in was Mamta Singh. I was eager to meet new people and find volunteer opportunities and Mamta was already doing all of that and more. She has a gift for matching needs with hands-on assistance. Like my dad Chet she meets people where they are at and knows how to build connection, consensus, and coalition. Mamta’s many passions include health, safety, families, schools, infrastructure, green space, and fiscal responsibility. She is not afraid to ask the tough questions to get to the bottom of a problem that needs solving. And then she goes on to figure out who can get the job done. And while building those connections and bringing various parties together she is right in the mix with her own sleeves rolled up ready to do the work.
Cast your vote for Mamta Singh for Hudson County Commissioner District 4 on June 6, 2023. I have no doubt that when elected Mamta will get to work for you and your family. To find out more about Mamta go to www.mamtasinghforjc.com
