Gurinder Singh Khalsa says his experience in business and the ability to bring a new voice to the table “will be an asset for Fishers.”
SikhsPAC founder and Fishers, Indiana,-based community activist Gurinder Singh Khalsa today announced his plan to run for City Council of Fishers. He officially filed his nomination on February 6.
Khalsa, a resident of Fishers for over a decade, is a prominent business leader, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, who has worked with public leaders and organizations across the state and nation.
“I have met many trailblazers who have made a difference in the lives of others through their work in public service,” Khalsa said on his decision to run for the council. “My experience in business operations and the ability to bring a new voice to the table as we strive for forward-thinking visions and goals for the community will be an asset for Fishers.”
He added, “An interest in public policy based on my past experiences along with the desire to give back to my community are among the prevailing factors as to my decision to run for office. The community of Fishers has been a wonderful place to live, work, and raise our family. I want to be a part of giving back through public service.”
Khalsa said he is particularly concerned about his community and about the local welfare of Fishers. “I desire to invest my time in Fishers – working towards collaborating with others as we address the fast-paced growth of our community and inspiring others to get involved with the community, as well,” he said.
Khalsa, along with his wife, Gagan, have raised their two children, Vishu and Ajay, in Fishers since 2009. Khalsa is the president and CEO of SikhsMEDIA. He is also a member of several boards and commissions within the city and state. He has been very active on the local level and said he aims to bring in the same dedication in his new role, too.
