Patel, who is a Democrat and was appointed in August to fill Major’s seat, garnered the most votes with 4,151 over Republican challenger Amarasena Anura Rupasinghe, who gained 1,600 votes, and Independent challenger Nutan Kalamdani, who received 336 votes, in the election Nov. 8.

Patel said during the campaign that his specialty is engineering and infrastructure.

“We have made great strides in paving our roads and rebuilding our sewers and I would like to continue that progress and take a special interest in how we go about doing that to see if my experience can lead to savings in taxpayer dollars,” he said.

Patel said he has noticed the great infrastructure improvements made to the school district with fields, tracks, tennis courts, playgrounds and paving projects and he would like to see this continue.

“I would like to see more jobs created and see our education system continue to improve,” he said. “Mayor [John] McCormac has made great strides and I want to be a part of his team to keep the progress moving forward.”
