Pinoy elected to the city council in New England

-

The Philippine Consulate General in New York announced Friday that a Filipino had won a city council seat in New England.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, Constantino “Coco” Alinsug, 50, a former youth leader, became the first Filipino to be elected to the City Council in Lynn, Massachusetts. On Monday, January 3, Alinsug was sworn in.

In November 2021, he won the elections. Ward 3 is 15 minutes north of Boston, and Alinsug represents it.

Consul General Elmer Cato complimented Alinsug on his new position and expressed confidence in his abilities.

“Your feat is worthy of commendation as you are one of a few Filipinos who have been successful in their political aspirations here in the United States,” Cato said in a letter sent to Alinsug on Wednesday.

Alinsug was a founding member of the Philippine National Youth Commission and worked for former President Fidel Ramos and his nephew Ranjit Shahani. According to the DFA, he arrived in the United States two decades ago.
