We lack honest Leadership in the office of Mayor

Recently a negative piece was sent out about me indicating that I voted NO for Police and Fire. The council votes on the entire budget and not specifically on Police and Fire. How would anyone not support their Police and Fire departments? Both departments are essential part of ensuring the quality and safety of our community.

It’s Time for Change in Leadership

Like many families, my wife Anitha and I chose to make Rochester Hills our home. This is where we raised our daughter. With God’s blessings, and through hard work and perseverance we have had the fortune of living the American Dream and doing our best to give back to the community.

A leader with the experience & the integrity to make our hometown better.

I am running for Mayor because I want Rochester Hills to continue to be a strong residential community, and to be a place where our kids and grandkids want to return to – to live, work, and raise a family.


After serving eight years as a Council Member for Rochester Hills and Treasurer and Commissioner of OPC, it is truly an honor to be a candidate for Mayor of our wonderful city – Rochester Hills. The premise of my candidacy is about community engagement, providing honest and trusted leadership with integrity.

  • Ravi, reading your words has made me even more confident that you have what it takes
    to represent Rochester Hills for the next four years. Your non-political agenda
    that is citizen and community focused will help us hold onto the community we want
    for our families. Your resume is impressive and instills confidence in your
    ability to be an excellent leader.
    Marianne Fischer Maurer
    Former Teacher and Vice Principal of Long Meadow Elementary, Rochester Community Schools
  • As a Treasurer and Commissioner of OPC, Ravi was a champion for seniors.
    He led OPC to develop a strategic plan and establish a vision and mission for the future.
    It has been an incredible pleasure to work with Ravi over all of these years
    and I sincerely believe Rochester Hills would be fortunate to have him as Mayor.
  • With fresh leadership Rochester Hills can be a place where we can together preserve,
    build and grow it. Ravi is that leader.
  • A leader we can trust. Ravi is right for Rochester Hills. He is fiscally conservative
    and consistently advocated for residents as Council Member. He will be an incredible Mayor.
  • It’s rare to find people as kind and competent as Ravi in public service and I hope you
    will join me in support of his candidacy for Mayor.
