All down the ballot!

How can we get a list of where each candidate stands on each issue so that we can vote properly?

You’re better off with kicking out the incumbents (who are vastly democrats in NYC).

Still doesnt have the authority

Cuomo is a paper tiger. Only the state legislature can pass or make laws. That people dont know thier rights and comply is from thier own ignorance. That said vote them out and vote Republican. New York can turn red it has before. There are millions who are fed up. Daven and fight back by saying NO and not complying with any of this nonsense.

It’s time to stop blaming anti semitism form the poor behavior on the part of the community.

It's time to call out double standards

When the government has double standards, one for the Jews and a second for others it’s time to call it out.

He helped control covid in NY, without him this city would look like the rest of the country right now. There was no anti-semitism here. If Jews just wore masks and had respect and valued human life, then he wouldn’t have had to single us out at all. Vote Democrat, save lives

I find it frustrating that our people are against wearing a mask. I’m sure the governor feels the same. Sneaking people through back doors and burning masks in the streets. Shopping in Lakewood is life risking. I will absolutely vote for a governor who worried about all our health. Fought for life saving ventilators. Pushed for more testing. If mistakes were made at the beginning it was the void of having knowledge of what this virus is. The actions of people purposely willing to harm our elderly is unforgivable

You’re a shepsele and you don’t even know it, SAD!

Halevai that "There was no antisemitism here"

You are clearly a troll.
You clearly do not know any elderly in assisted living or nursing homes, either…
Halevai you were accurate about this whole matter, but you are not.

Cuomo is human and made many mistakes. Nys has huge death rate and covid rates. If he were Republican the media would be lynching him. https://www.propublica.org/article/two-coasts-one-virus-how-new-york-suffered-nearly-10-times-the-number-of-deaths-as-california

I can’t tell if this is sarcastic…

Clearly you are being sarcastic or you are a troll! New York has had the MOST deaths in the nation! Thanks to Cuomo’s mismanagement of COVID, sending the contagious COVID patients to nursing homes to infect the elderly and infirm, the virus death rates soared. Signaling out “the Orthodox Jewish Community” spurred mass anti-Semitism. If any other group was signaled out in such a manner, the outrage would have been enormous, regardless of whether the group was right or wrong. That is NOT how to deal with purported non-compliance! Cuomo is a disaster for New York and needs his power… Read more »

Zelnore Myrie is a staunch Anti-Semite who should not get one vote from our community, he is the one who is raising property taxes on families in the neighborhood without a stop and the one who says “Jewish landlords” are the cause of NYC rent issues.

He is the one who pushing for more housing and homeless shelters in Crown Heights-

Doesn’t Judaism believe in helping the homeless? More shelters are a good thing.

So go ahead

Put them up in your house. Or buy a house next door to yours, and house them there. The rest of us realize, sensibly enough, that “Torah values” are not, as you pretend, a suicide pact.

November 2, 2020 8:33 am

Why would we vote out someone who helped save lives? Thank Gd Cuomo ignored Trump and took action to get this virus down to lower numbers, otherwise we could look like Wisconsin. Cuomo and the other democrats are the only politicians taking this virus seriously, listening to scientists and demanding masks. Vote Republican and you’re voting for a death sentence for millions of Americans.

Just Google the word “Cuomo” and “Nursing homes”.

Some actual numbers
Reply to  ...
November 2, 2020 10:13 am

Deaths listed as from COVID in New York: 33687
Per million: 1732

Deaths from COVID in Wisconsin: 2047
Per million: 352

So if New York “looked like Wisconsin,” over 30000 people would still be alive. In what universe can you actually say that Cuomo “took action to get this virus down to lower numbers,” when his state has nearly twice the deaths of the next state?

“Renowned medical expert Dr. Sanjay Gupta compared Wisconsin’s soaring rate of COVID-19 infection right now to New York’s peak infection rate in April of 509 cases per million people.” -wisn.com

I’d recommend watching something other than Fox News, they lie just as much as trump. Instead stay educated and informed.

For your information, my figures come from the Coronavirus Dashboard (https://ncov2019.live/data), which aggregates figures provided by the various health agencies, not by your bugaboo Fox News. And by the way, chanting its name, as you do, does not an argument make. So once again, the _death rate_ in Wisconin is one-fifth that of New York, and the actual number of deaths is one-sixteenth. “Soaring rate of infection” means very little, since it can mean anything from a mild case of the sniffles to hospitalization. I don’t suppose you’d care to check how many of these “soaring” cases are closer to… Read more »
