    Yaakov great post. You raise a great point about loyalty being respect by politicians more then supporting the winning side. Crown Heights doesn’t have 10 thousand votes what we can have is respect. Lets not also lose that.

    our community has to support politicians that our loyal to us. Nothing outperforms 10 years of solid-track-record.

    Thank you Yaakov for taking a stand on this; you are making a kiddush hashem. Besides that, we know that you have been involved with politics for much longer than the three others led by AL who purport to know whats right for our community. BH you see the big picture and are not swayed by false and empty promises, especially those which we have seen in the last 12 hours. Bottom line, aside from loyalty to the one we have worked with for 25 years, Jesse has a great track record, having been involved since he was President of… Read more »

    Dorancy linked to Yvette Clarke and Camba Homeless Shelters

    It is no secret that the powerful US House of Representative Yvette Clarke is propping up Rubain Dorancy in this election. However Yvette Clark’s mother Una Clarke is affiliated with CAMBA who just built two buildings for the homeless and affordable housing (209 units) on Albany & Winthrop. And there is a third building for the homeless and affordable housing for 279 units going up on 560 Winthrop, which is right next door to the two buildings just completed. These three buildings are in addition to another homeless shelter 681 Clarkson, around the corner run by the Salvation Army. There… Read more »

    Yaacov  - vote for the winner

    Yaacov - vote for the winner

    Yaacov, you are usually on the money (and almost had de Blasio wrapped up…) but in politics there isn’t any friendship (pirkei avos).
    Making the case to vote for a candidate, because ” it’s not about who wins or loses…. I can assure you that everyone respects loyalty” Its both naive and impractical.
    There was a wise man in our community Shmuel Aizek Popack, who would give ‘aiztes’, I once asked him, who to vote for, with out missing a beat he said “vote for the winner”.
    In politics there are only winners and losers – always vote for a winner. Always.

    To 7 you are making a big mistake!

    The one thing that has worth in politics is loyalty. I give you this and you vote for me.

    If people see that you are loyal they give you things so you will be on their side. If they see that you only go with the winner, you become worthless to them and therefor give you nothing.

    Very cute. But your mistaken. Even if the candidate Yaakov endorses loses, he’ll still be respected by the winner as everyone will recognize his willingness to do the unpopular.
