New Jersey is one of America’s most critical flashpoints when it comes to one of our most fundamental rights: Freedom of Expression.
Although our right to free speech is protected by the First Amendment of our Constitution, that’s hardly stopped Democrats from doing whatever they can to infringe upon our rights. Aided by billions of dollars in private funding and backed by Big Tech entities like Facebook, Twitter, and more, the attack on American values and conservative thought has been expanded to the digital realm.
Controlling the people begins with controlling what they can and can’t say, and I will not stand for any attempts from Big Tech or anyone else to trample upon our First Amendment rights.
As Governor of our beautiful state, I will:
Demand greater transparency so companies can no longer suppress speech with opaque insider policies
Require extensive disclosures, to be enforced by New Jersey election officials, to hold companies accountable if they favor one candidate over another
Impose severe fines on any tech companies that suspend candidates for office from their platforms without merit
Mandate a “default opt-out” policy that allows tech users to escape Big Tech’s oppressive content filters
Empower citizens with a “private right of action,” which will enable them to pursue damages against companies that violate opt-out policies
It’s no secret that New Jersey, and indeed our American society at large, is devolving into an increasingly Orwellian hell scape, where wrongthink is punished harshly by private interests. Protecting the people from this form of corporate tyranny and restoring the First Amendment to what our Founding Fathers intended will be one of my top priorities.

Singh for Governor
My Grandfather was an economist and started on his journey for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness when arriving in America in 1974 and lived in Ocean County, Lakewood, New Jersey. He brought my father here and taught him the path to the American Dream was through integrity and hard work. My family started at the bottom and they instilled the values of hard work and dedication. My father successfully started a small business that went on to support a number of our federal agencies including the Federal Aviation Administration, NASA, the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and others.
I was born in Atlantic City, raised in South Jersey, earned an engineering degree at New Jersey Institute of Technology and followed in my father’s footsteps running our family-owned engineering business specializing in missile defense, satellite navigation, and aviation security and safety. From protecting the skyways across our nation to helping develop the communications backbone for our war-fighters abroad, I have focused for more than a decade-long career on protecting our citizens and our homeland.
As a businessman, I created jobs, made payroll and helped ensure the success of our men and women in uniform. With each project we completed, my admiration grew for those in the military who take an oath to protect our country from all enemies foreign and domestic.
