BACK2THEFRESH (AP) Camden NJ Native Luis Gaitan is running for city council (4th ward). The Villanova & Rowan University graduate has a master’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

One day while serving in the United States Navy, he thought, “What am I doing thousands of miles away solving problems abroad, when I can be at home solving problems 1 mile away.”

From that point on, he decided to return to his native town to serve. The Nicaraguan American is a runner just like I am, who founded a non-for-profit organization called, “I Run This City” that consist of over 40 students.

He is also currently the active President of Concerned Citizens Of North Camden (CCNC).

Make sure you keep your eye on him America.
