What i cannot stand is the Assembly Richardson’s not being able to say i am sorry for what she said, and STOP HER LYING. She did made the statement according to other people who were there. She asked her crony Chairman Barrington aka chairman Mao to turn the microphone on. This was deliberate, and she knows that she did made the statement. What caught her, was she did not know that Mr. Fidler was there. So she then try to make numerous calls, asking for people to make statement to her character. It is time for her to go and… Read more »

What is the truth she does feel that gentrification is caused by Jews or economics to put this .upon one particular group just bad

Lets say for arguments sake she did say what is being alleged. I am not understanding how it is helpful to keep picking this apart and go on and on. Frankly as a result of several ethnic groups of people from inside and outside this neighborhood,, the houses here and other neighborhoods close by are totally out of reach for everyone except those on the top 10%. That being said, she did say in a statement that she did not say what was alleged and having met her on several occasions I can testify that she is a genuine and… Read more »

Are they saying Lew Fidler lied? Why would he do that especially when he works for Eric Adams??!!

Answering to the "Jewish Community" is insufficient
April 15, 2018 2:24 pm

A remark like this, while mentioning Jews, is offensive to more than just the Jewish community.

This representative, or any public official alleged to have talked like this, is answerable to the public in general.

Her district include many righteous gentiles as well, who do not want this kind of “representation.”

Therefore, her response should NOT only be to the Jewish community.

As long as we – as a community – literally give away our political power by not voting we have no right to complain about who represents us. Hundreds of people here (including girls & bochurim who could vote on absentee ballots) are not even registered. Other Jewish communities have voter registration drives & offer transportation to the polling places & it pays off in real influence & wins in elections. Why can’t we get with the program ??

I cannot take her word that she simply did not say those comments. I think someone needs to speak with several of the attendees at the meeting and verify who made the statement. If in fact she did say these comments then she needs to be brought to the Jewish community town hall meeting and explain why she did say it. The Jewish community cannot afford to have their representatives harbor such feelings about its own community, and even worse, the Jewish community cannot be seen allowing such comments go unchecked.

Always the same

Yes let’s trust the POLOTICIANS and their lackeys e.g. Cohen and behrmam and not the guy who was actually there at the event. And as #7 said we can always trust Jews to mess over other Jews

Jewish Defenders

Why does it seem that every time these politicians make remarks and do things that are explicitly anti semitic. The usual Jewish defenders pop up and guard them. Hmmm. Kudos btw for the Jewish Press this week calling for her resignation.

She regularly excludes frrum Jews from her events....
April 14, 2018 9:18 pm

…by scheduling them for Shabbos! I live in her district, and it has happened on numerous occasions that she has scheduled various events for her constituents, including an annual summer family recreational event, on Shabbos. There was another recent event also scheduled by her on Shabbos, that surely her office could have scheduled at a time that could have included her frum constituents. To be fair, SOME (but not all!) other governmental representatives have done this kind of insensitive scheduling as well, from time to time. But not as frequently as Ms. Richardson does. OR they choose to give the… Read more »

As a good politician she is saying: I didn’t say that I said that,I said that I didn’t say that I didn’t say it!

The fact that they are denying tells me that in all likelyhood she did say it

A week late
April 14, 2018 8:07 pm

So it seems everyone agrees the comments were made. So who actually said it?

Umm...

No words to describe how much I don’t trust any of the above…
