Something is wrong here,
April 17, 2018 8:05 am

we probably need elections for a new vaad. If hash v’shalom we have elected officials fostering disunity, disharmony, and the opposite of peace in the neighborhood it’s no wonder there was a brutal attack on a Jew Friday night in front of 770 and the possibility of a riot on Empire Blvd. e’rev Yom Tov! Sometimes rotten somewhere, but the vaad just continues to stick their heads in th sand. Not good!!

For the sake of Crown Heights, PLEASE GET MORE INVOLVED! You won’t remember me but we worked together 20+ years ago to get better policing, more funding & a change in CHJCC leadership. I guess like me, you got burned out, but CH needs you – honest, forthright, and sincere.

Let it go

She denied the statement. That’s it. Let it go.

For the record . We all get notices from our State Senator Jesse Hamilton and Assemblywoman Richardson to attend various Community events hosted by each to help our Community and receive valuable information at these events . Have you ever noticed what day of the week they occur ALWAYS ON SHABBOS . They DO NOT care about us only when it comes to votes and to take pictures . They will give you stupid , non plausible answers as they have told me on more than one occasion as to why they have to make the events on Shabbos .… Read more »

Yaakov B did not say that she ‘for sure’ didn’t say those words. He says that based on his conversations with people who were there he doesn’t ‘think’ that she said those words. Past that Richardson didn’t win her race with our votes, if we all remember correctly she won biggly without us even though she owes us nothing she still tries to be a good team player but she’s clearly catering to the lowest income minority members of greater c.h. she herself actually lives in an apartment so she relates to apartment renters unfortunately due to a mixture of… Read more »

Sugar is Sweet!

Barry Sugar speaks the truth and is not afraid! We need people like him running our community!

Like John Bolton said regarding the UN
April 16, 2018 11:02 am

“If the UN secretariat building lost 10 stories it wouldn’t make a bit of a difference” same exact can be said for the JCC of CH …..

To all the comments complaining about this
April 16, 2018 9:52 am

You vote? No?
You’re to blame for her being our politician.

Politicians are motivated by expediency
April 16, 2018 9:26 am

Let her have her plausible sensibility. As they used to say, Don’t shoot the Kaiser, the next one could be worse. Now she knows she owes us one.

Diana has no mandate
April 16, 2018 9:14 am

In the last election she ran unopposed. She was arrested that day for hitting her son but she won anyway. It’s time to run a quality candidate from our community who will care about ALL the residents of crown heights

BS”D Yes new elections

To all C.H. non-voters: YOUR fault we have her!
April 16, 2018 8:41 am

“I’m to busy/lazy to vote”.
“It won’t make a difference anyway”.

Now thank yourself for trash like her “representing” us.

Wow!
April 16, 2018 8:15 am

Amazing article. On beryl speaks the truth. Our so called leaders are too afraid.

Note who the Lubavitcher is in this photo
April 16, 2018 8:05 am

Just like always, it’s certainly not just an average Crown Heights Chabadnik: it’s one of the usual politicos. And in the original COLLive article about this situation, who were the Lubavitchers there? Mr. Cohen and Mr. Lipkind, if I am not mistaken. As ALWAYS, Rep. Richardson, and most of the others, only extend token gestures toward us since we don’t represent a big enough voting bloc for them to bother with anyone other than the self-appointed (and usually paid!) “liaisons.” If these reps. and senators would actually and sincerely reach out to the Jewish community here, not just once in… Read more »

“Community leaders”
April 16, 2018 7:59 am

These self proclaimed “spokespeople”, “Liaisons” & “activists” speak for no one but themselves, its known that yvette Clark was from the only representatives to vote for the Iran deal(!). Unfortunately the situation now reflects clearly that they dont have to vote the minds of those they represent, because history has shown time and time again that there will be no repercussions to what the elected officials do or say. Drain the swamp, get rid of any unelected activists who are for the most lart in it for some photops (or worse), and elect intelligent people who will hold our politicians… Read more »

It's long overdue
April 16, 2018 4:59 am

Time for elections for Vaad Hakaol!
anyone second that?

TRUST BARRY
April 16, 2018 4:26 am

Barry says the EMES! He is NOT afraid. UNLIKE our community leaders. Unfortunately I learned the hard way but Barry was there to help our family in the hardest of times and NOT the community “leaders” who are politicians and NOTHING more!

Just get everyone of age registered to vote and outvote her. The more votes the more the politicians will watch what they say or do. Simple

Well said
April 16, 2018 2:46 am

The problem is that some people will do anything to get their picture printed,
Even dance with the devil.

this is a great article...
April 16, 2018 1:21 am

…that will have no effect. unfortunately, nobody cares and politics as usual will just continue.

A guy who says it real
April 16, 2018 12:16 am

Agree with Sugar! He sees clearly!
My vote goes to Beryl!!!
