In the past, Dr. Kumar has worked extensively with students and hopes to facilitate better community services in Bathwick with them. In his spare time, Dr. Kumar enjoys spending time with his son, a national chess player who attends a local Bathwick secondary school.

Now elected, Dr. Kumar ensures for a better future by thinking globally and acting locally.
