I am a long-term resident of Mount Pleasant and have been interacting with Ram for many years. Ram stands out to me as a trustworthy, authentic, hardworking and highly experienced leader. He has the potential to create a strong positive difference around him and this is why, when I learned that he is interested in standing for the position of trustee, I decided to be his supporter.
Mount Pleasant needs a trustee who is an independent thinker and a proven leader who understands economic development. Ram Bhatia is such a leader and he has proved himself beyond doubt to many in our community. As an engineer, he served manufacturing industry for over 30 years. He acquired a great deal of experience in contracts and negotiations with large international companies such as Foxconn.
He was chair and a long time trustee of Gateway Technical College Board. He is dedicated to the growth and well being of his community including workforce development and development of manufacturing base; and hence help improve the local economy. This is the kind of leader Mount Pleasant needs on its board.
Mount Pleasant will be greatly served by having Ram Bhatia on our village board. I urge you all to vote Ram for trustee on April 3.
