My name is Mohan and I am an immigrant’s success story. I arrived in US as an immigrant in 1989, raised my family in Staten Island, and built a successful career for myself early on based on the values of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance. I have Master’s degree in economics and a degree in mathematics and statistics and an associate degree in computer science. I joined New York State’s civil service and have been employed by New York State for the last 28 years currently serving in an Information Technology (IT) Department.
My academic qualifications and leadership abilities earned me quick ascendance in my career with New York State and recognition by my coworkers. I became a Labor Union Leader, holding leadership roles as Council President for about 2000 statewide union members and currently serving as Executive Board Member, Chair of Workers’ Compensation Statewide Committee and a member of Statewide IT Committee.
Some highlights of my achievement as labor union leader were introducing Telecommuting in the
Workplace and having my joint motion passed at the PEF Convention to mandate equal time off for NY State female employees, which is now waiting passage in the NYS Legislature. Currently Mohan is focused on Workers Comp benefits, opposing Constitutional convention, erosion of NY State Civil Service and stopping privatization of State government jobs.
I also spent the next two decades serving the Staten Island community in various roles as a Community Board 1 member, on the Police Precinct Community Council after successfully completing Police Civilian Academy and as a member of Community Emergency Response Team. I also help a variety of Charities and other Interfaith and grass root activities to improve the quality of life in Staten Island including coordinating Youth Cricket coaching for youngsters in Staten Island. At the place I work, as a SEFA (State Employees Federated Appeal) Coordinator, our SEFA team raise money each year in the range of $ 70000 to $ 140000 for many Charities and natural calamities, besides acting as a First Responder and Blood Captain in my office.
I am also Second Vice President of the South Shore Democratic Club, Acting Vice President/Executive Board Member of SIDA and a member of the Democratic Organization of Richmond County.
Today, I want to serve as your voice on Capitol Hill: a voice that echoes your concerns; a voice that matters; a voice that cares.
I strongly believe in the famous quote of President John F Kennedy, “Ask not, what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
I’m committed to making your voice heard on Capitol Hill. Like you, I want to play an active role in making my community, state and country a safer, better place to raise my children, run my business, render service to the community and forge a future filled with unlimited promise and realized potential.
If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make all the difference– for a positive future for our families, our communities, and our country.
God Bless America.
