Dear Crown Heights residents,
As you know this election season has been a busy one. After much consultation and internal discussions, we believe that the candidates we are endorsing below are the right leaders our community needs right now. Many of you will say that this is the same old, and nothing is going to change.
Well, we believe that things will, because many of the candidates we have endorsed are running in very tight races, and they are leaning very strongly on the Jewish community to help them win which in return will allow us to get their attention when requesting services and assistance to our community.
Many of us have to run around the borough to find the appropriate agencies and programs that provide the services we all may need; from purchasing health insurance, applying for a business loan, registering for affordable housing, section eight, WIC, navigating city and state government and so much more.
Well, those times are now over; one of the candidates who is running for state senate has promised to open a satellite office that handles the above mentioned services right here in our very own community. This way we will not need to go elsewhere, it will all be located in one place. To our knowledge no other politician has ever offered or promised such a thing to our community.
As we all know Brooklyn as a whole and Crown Heights in particular is rapidly changing, and unless we unify and make sure our voices are heard through our votes, then we will be pushed aside by other communities and groups who now call Crown Heights home.
Our community needs now more than ever a strong and vocal leader who can navigate the large bureaucracy of government, and help pass legislation that will help our community with the rising costs of living and tuition. Our choice for such a leader is Rubain Dorancy!
These are the candidates who we endorse and encourage you to vote for are on Tuesday September 9th:
Andrew Cuomo for Governor
Kathy Hochul for Lt. Governor
Rubain Dorancy for State Senator
Moses Moore for State Committee Male Representative (District Leader)
Shirley Patterson for State Committee Female Representative (District Leader)
Diana Szochet for Civil Court Judge
We implore every eligible and registered voter of the Crown Heights Jewish community to come and vote; help make our voices heard!
Wishing you all a k’siva v’chasima tova,
Avi Lesches, Shlomie Hecht and Sruly Clapman
