Hirsh Singh announces he’s a candidate again

He’s in a contested race for a condo board seat in Atlantic City

Hirsh Singh is mounting his sixth campaign for office in five years, but this time he is setting his sights on something a little lower than Governor or the United States Senate.

The 37-year-old Singh is now seeking a seat on condo board for the Ocean Club, twin high-rise building in Atlantic City.

The race for a condo board seat follows unsuccessful bids for the Republican nomination for governor in 2017, U.S. Senate and Congress in 2018, U.S. Senate in 2020, and Governor in 2021.

“To the amazing residents of the Ocean Club, I’m running for the board,” Singh said in a post on the condo’s Facebook page.  “I was born in Atlantic City and have represented South Jersey in the political environment.”

But the race won’t be easy for Singh.  He’s taking on three incumbents in a six-candidate race for three seats.

The top issue in the race is the safety of balconies, where falling concrete and structural issues caused the condo board to ban residents from using their balconies.

“I’m an engineer and I’m running to return the Ocean Club to being the flagship property of Atlantic City,” Singh told the people he homes to make his constituents.  “I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and look forward to earning your support and eventually your vote this August 21.”

Singh appears to expect a negative campaign against him.

“You will find 100’s of articles about me across the web, some are hilarious, some are true, and some are completely untrue,” he told his neighbors.

It does appear that Singh is no longer living with his parents in Linwood, although it’s not clear where his full-time residence is.  Records show that he registered to vote in Toms River on March 17, 2022.
