1 Vote Makes Indian Win Council Elections In US!
We have to accept the fact that the land of opportunities, the United States has almost become a second home for Indians. The nation enjoys a good Indian population and they are holding good positions there. Indian-origin Kamala Harris is serving as the Vice-President.

Now an Indian –American has won as the council member in Sunnyvale. This is the first time an Indian-origin person was elected as a council member from the newly formed district. The specialty of the win is that he won the election with just one vote. This shows how tough the election went.

The Sunnyvale City Council recently approved the bill to change the boundaries and added new districts so that it becomes easy to take care of things there. The new map was approved unanimously by Sunnyvale's City Council.

District 3 is one such district that was formed as the authorities decided to change the boundaries. An election was held to elect the council member from District 3 and Indian-origin Murali Srinivasan won the election with a mere one vote.

Two years after the district was formed it went to the polls and the Indian-origin person emerged victorious. Justin Wang Murali's opponent also gave a tough fight and secured 2,812 votes, one less than him. We have to say that both gave their best in the polls.

An engineer by profession Murali Srinivasan is on cloud nine with the election result. Saying that he felt very nervous when the votes were counted, Murali said he is feeling happy and proud now, reports said.

The Council will look at various issues in the locality including the issues and problems faced by the locals. Murali is expected to take the issues people are facing there to the notice of the Council so that the body can address them at the earliest. The oath-taking ceremony is likely to take place in a few weeks.

December is a holiday month in America as Christmas and New Year fall in the same month. People get busy participating in decoration and arrangements for the same. Murali might take oath as the council member after the celebration mood gets over. Murali belongs to Bengaluru and migrated to America for a better future.
