Don't vote = don't complain!
Guest
Don't vote = don't complain!

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

Don't be a lazy Crown Heights-er

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
Guest
Please vote for the Lubavitcher

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

Please Vote.
Guest
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!
Guest

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
Guest

Dear everyone, please encourage your own family to go vote for this gentleman. We need to improve our lifestyle starting from our own safety and security.

guys be realistic
Guest

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

Number 10 and number 19
Guest
Number 10 and number 19

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

Guys, please come out and vote; and don’t forget to contribute!!!

#10...
Guest
#10...

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.

Every Vote Counts
Guest
Every Vote Counts

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
Guest
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
Guest
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
Guest
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.
