Ravi Bhalla was elected as Hoboken’s new mayor Nov. 7, beating out five other candidates.

However, winning the election was not easy, especially days before the election, when he was a target of racism.

Flyers circulated with a picture of Bhalla, captioning “Don’t let TERRORISM take over our Town!”

Despite being a target, Bhalla overcame the odds and won the election.

The mayor-elect spoke to PIX11 News to discuss his plans for the city, including the continuation of the comprehensive flood protection program to help the flood-prone city and how tax plans in Washington D.C. can impact the state’s plans to raise taxes.
