Washington, March 18 TIWN) Indian-American Republican Jitendra Diganvker, who ran for Congress in 2016, announced that he was contesting for the post of Highway Commissioner in a suburb of Chicago, according to a media report.

Speaking to the American Bazaar, Diganvker, who immigrated to the US in 1999, said the Commissioner’s job would provide him with the right platform to address local issues.  Diganvker said his candidacy is important as the Maine Township is home to many minority communities “who are entirely unrepresented”.  Early voting for the local elections will begin on March 22.
