US City Gets Its First Mayor From the Sikh Community!
Indians migrating to the western nations for a better future is not a new thing. We have been seeing this for a very long time. Indians make up to a big portion of the population that migrates to other nations. Compared to other nations, Indians prefer the United States and the United Kingdom for migration.

Indians are not only working there but also holding good positions. Indian-origin Rishi Sunak became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Indian-origin Kamala Harris became the Vice-President of America.

As another example of Indians growth in the United States, an Indian origin was elected as a Mayor of the city. The person registered a unanimous win in the elections as there was no competition from others as per the reports.

As per the information, one Mikey Hothi who hails from the Sikh community was elected as the Mayor of Lodi City in California. He is the first Sikh person to become the Mayor of the city.

The tenure of the previous Mayor came to an end in November and the councilors held a key meeting to name the next Mayor. When a councilor named Mikey Hothi as the Mayor, the other councilors supported the same, and Hothi was elected as the Mayor unanimously.

For the past two years, Mikey Hothi has been serving as the Councilor. Back in November 2020, he was elected to the District 5 Lodi Municipal Council. Cut to two years he was elected as the Mayor of Lodi City in California.

Mikey Hothi's family hails from Punjab and the family migrated to America. Mikey went to the famous Tokay High School for his education. His family has a good image in the area reportedly as they played a big role in the construction of a Sikh Temple on Armstrong Road.

Mikey Hothi became the 117th person to get elected as the Mayor of the city. He is the first person from the Sikh community to be elected to the position. Hothi took to social media to share the happy news of getting elected. "Honored to be sworn in as the 117th Mayor of the City of Lodi," he said.
