Chetan Hebbur Runs For Office

Press Release
04/06/2017

Chetan Hebbur, a 21-year-old New York University student, is running for the New York City Council District 2, the New York Post reported.  He hopes to succeed Rosie Mendez, who is term-limited.

Hebbur, who hopes to get the Democratic nomination, is a student of Mathematics and Economics at New York University and plans to rely on NYC students to clinch the nomination to represent the East Village, Lower East Side, and Murray Hill.

“The city needs younger voices who represent change,” Hebbur told the Post. “You only need a tiny slice of the pie and there are 50,000 students at NYU.”

Hebbur, who grew up in the suburbs of Dallas, moved to New York in 2013 to attend the university.  He also works as a Marketing Consultant for Toews cop.

If he wins the election, Hebbur will become the youngest person to be elected to the New York City council at the age of 22. He would also tie Joel Rivera, former Bronax Councilman, for the title of youngest city lawmaker.

“I plan to do things differently and create change,” the Post quoted Hebbur as saying.

“I want to get my peers on the same page and actively make a difference in our community,” he said.

According to reports, Hebbur wants to transform NYU students’ anger at President Trump into a local movement and believes in a “grass-roots approach” to his campaign.

“My message is something that can resonate with people of all ages and even party affiliations,” he added.

The primary for New York City Council is on September 12 and the general election slated for November 7.
