CANDIDACY OF ATTY. LEANDRO "LINDY" LACHICA FOR HUDSON COUNTY DISTRICT 1 COMMISSIONER IN NJ WILL REKINDLE POLITICAL INTEREST OF FIL AMS
JERSEY CITY - We will go local this week.
We believe that the candidacy of Filipino American Atty. LEANDRO "Lindy" LACHICA of Bayonne, NJ for Hudson County District 1 Commissioner will rekindle the seemingly waned interest of Jersey City Filipino Americans in local politics.
This is our belief even if Atty. Lachica's District 1 comprises only of Bayonne and parts of Greenville section of Jersey City, including Country Village and Society Hill and the following streets west of J.F. Kennedy Blvd.
including cross streets:
a) Custer Ave
b) Gates Ave
c) Seaview Ave
d) Neptune Ave
e) Winfield Ave
f) Bartholdi Ave
g) Pearsall Ave
h) Lembeck Ave
Voters of those communities and streets, in addition to Bayonne, are eligible to vote for Atty. LACHICA.
According to his campaign leaflet, the Fil Am candidate is a "well-known lawyer and former diplomat from the Philippines, previously worked as a Consul and top legal expert at the PH Consulate General in New York." He is a trusted advocate in the District he is a candidate.
He has a successful history of dealing with work problems and fighting against human trafficking. Presently, Atty. Lindy focuses on immigration and employment problems. He helps non-profit organizations in NJ free of charge.
Atty. Lindy studied at the University of the Philippines.
Make Atty. LINDY LACHICA win on Nov. 7, like Fil Ams did during the elections of JC Mayors Bret Schundler, J. Healy, and incumbent Steven Fulop . Same is true with former City Council President Rolando Lavarro Jr. History shows that when the estimated 15,000 Filipinos in Jersey City get out and stand behind a candidate, that bet ends in victory. Let that history repeat itself in the case of Atty. Leandro "Lindy" LACHICA.
