    It takes a few rounds to get in but if every Jew came out to vote he might have a chance

    Whoever doesn’t vote on election day, has no right to complain later about anything to do with politics or about our elected officials.

    Hopefully all the lazy Crown Heights-ers who don’t usually vote will go vote this time so we have a chance of a Lubavitcher representing us for a change.

    Please vote for the Lubavitcher

    Everyone please vote for a Lubavitcher to be the State Senator.

    Please Vote.

    Even if he does lose, it still makes a difference how much the MARGIN was.
    If he gets 3% no Lubavitcher will run again for the next 20 years!!

    If he gets 40%, someone will run again next time.

    don't need him!

    Another side is those who do vote are responsible for the ones they put in office.

    An example is the current president. Those voters who voted for him are responsible.

    Mendy Raitport, is a passionate bright individual with a lot of love and compassion for people. He would make an excellent candidate. His warmth sensitivity towards all those that know him will drive him to have a successful campaign full of high moral fiber. I fully support Mendy Raitport and I truly believe everyone if they were smart would do the same.

    Just because he is from our community it doesn’t means we need to vow for him.
    The bottom line what is he going to do for the community?
    Is he going to be bringing in more funding ,and programs?
    Is he going to take over 100k for his salary and do nothing ?
    Important to know and understand what he is going to do .
    We need action not people sitting doing nothing

    EVERYONE VOTE FOR HIM

    If you’re serious about getting him elected start an absentee ballot drive, no one is going to the polls in an off election year with no serious contendor for gov. If you get everyone in ch to vote by absentee ballot perhaps the margin will be smaller

    BS”D # 10, you label him a phony but fail to mention even one reason why. Let us hear (if you can) As the Mishnah says- one who accuses another is merely putting their own pusellness on the one they accuse

    The tsinat chinam you have is atrocious. If you have nothing positive to say about a fellow jew take a muzzle and put it on your mouth. You are so uneducated and your ignorance blossoms. Please go get some education and come back and write an intellectual answer with proper grammar thank you.

    I vote for u

    I don’t know what chance he has of winning (as neither do you), but I can guarantee that if Mendy, or any other Lubavitcher, followed your advice we would have a zero percent chance of winning. Perhaps he could win, perhaps he can’t. At the very least it begins the process to show the local elected officials not to ignore the Jewish community…

    Your defeatist attitude certainly won’t get us anywhere…

    to some of you, my response
    #10, you are a sadly negative person. This man is a kind, bright, on the mark guy, and we need whats called an oxymoron…..an HONEST politician.
    #11: its not about one of our own, as much as it is to have SOMEONE HONEST AND DECENT. I give him alot of credit for the effort, and who knows, he might just get in. May he bring clarity to us all. and #30, I agree.

    Vote for Mendy and get all your friends and relatives to do the same. I sure will. It does not matter if he will not win this time. If we can muster a nice vote count you can bet the other politicians will notice. #10 and #19 are just plain losers who have no foresight of what this can mean to us.
    Good Luck Mendy.

    its a fact

    Yes he is jewish . It doesn’t mean we need to vote for him because he is Jewish. hamasei hu iker . we need to see tachlis what he plans to do for our community

    Swing Vote

    The problem voting for a Jewish candidate, unless he miraculously wins, is that we lose our leverage as a swing voter block. This makes us more irrelevant to whoever actually has a chance for winning to office.

    you pessimistic people

    you pessimistic people

    If I though as pessimistic as some of you I’d want to shoot myself some of you need deep therapy. But that is off topic I am happy a from Jew like Mendy is running it makes me optimistic and proud to be a jew.
