The city gives $25,000 for every single public School student. We pay taxes we should get money for our schools!

Gives jobs to the DOE not private teachers

It’s called self investment
Unfortunately we are not there, and don’t live in a wealthy hood at least to enjoy the infrastructure…
We don’t have anything for our kids – not playground not a swimming pool – zero

Sliwa is the only choice!

Sliwa stood with us during the riots!!
Adams will be another Dinkins! He stood with Farakan y”s, he idolized Dinkins, he will allow us Jews to be targeted and won’t do anything about it!

Vote for Sliwa!

How can our community be so blind and dumb! Just because some “leaders” in the community are friendly with Adams, dont fall for it!
Its nice to have a kids museum, but if it won’t be safe to get there, or the front of it will become a drug hangout, what good will it do us!

Amazing not one mention of the trash and filthy streets.

We need to start cleaning and making crown heights clean again. The city stopped cleaning the streets. Thank you to sam stern for taking the initiative to clean up the rebbes schuna!

“Support for the NYPD, and ***clean streets*** are major concerns for Yudi Eber of Eber’s Liquor Store on Kingston Avenue.”

What a joke

Any mayor of NYC isn’t doing diddly squat for our community. New York City is now controlled by special interests, unions, and the people who rely on the government for everything and bring in the most votes. Which is why this city is perpetually in the dumps and has to function as a Ponzi-scheme like entity. NYC takes the most from the people who work the hardest and spits them out. Which is why they move to Florida The mayor is a useless figurehead, not an effective policy maker.

What your vote does

The only effect of your vote is the block by block vote map that appears after election day. So an adams vote tells the media that you want leftist policies and a sliwa vote means “no way”. Ps don’t forget to vote “NO” to the horrible proposals on the back of the ballot. Ychi Hamelek! / Shmaya balberg

This is so, so wrong. We went all out to get Adams in the chair and the left and the media absolutely hate us for it. They hate us for it and absolutely nobody is saying heh district 35 loves them some leftist policy. Adams can do a lot of good if he’s inclined (only G-d really knows), working blacks want pretty much everything we’ve insisted on in these interviews. In theory silwa could be better but you might as well pencil Donald J for mayor then. (further I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Adams is in fact… Read more »

Curtis Sliwa is most certainly the only logical choice for Crown Heights and the rest of the city. But who says Crown Heights and our community “leaders” are logical.

Adams is Deblasio plus Dinkins 2.0

But worse!
It will be a mad house! Sky high crime, anti semetism, Al Sharpton and Farakon, all the dirt bags!

Adams claiming that Curtis Sliwa is a racist is preposterous. Pulling the race card like that is what you will get if same ol’ voting prevails. We need Sliwa, who puts the best interest of NY’ers first, for decades. He’s married to a Jewish woman btw.

I would like to have Light 💡!!!
October 6, 2021 10:44 am

October 6, 2021 10:49 am

All politicians are corrupt to the core !!!

October 6, 2021 10:51 am

Keep voting for Democrats it’s only gonna get worse. U will more and more people leaving crooklyn !!!

Money for schools
October 6, 2021 11:26 am

If you do the math he’ll see that school assistance is the biggest issue. All other issues total a few million dollars combined if they all pass. However, if we assume there are 3,000 students in our schools and we got $25k for each student – the same amount given for public students – that would total $75 million. No other program comes close. It is by far the most important issue as tuition is also the biggest expense for many frum families.

We can be all Rich!!!

We can demand NYC to sponsor private schools ( u know the most richest school is $50K per student and lower property taxes) if we will have free & equal education for our kids we will free our money to buy proper houses /homes/appointments or just we can have more food in the table ….

But who will sponsor this Bill, Who?

Here's what sliwa would do to yeshivas

And in terms of parochial schools, part of my life. I went to a parochial school. Catholic schools, they taught evolution. And in fact, it was state mandated. Now, Roman Catholic theology doesn’t believe in evolution, but we were exposed to that. Most of the Jewish shuls and synagogues, their religious schools, they have secular education. To those who refuse any secular education whatsoever, then they have to suffer the effects of that. And that means none of the state funding that they are entitled to if they would just do a balanced program. Mostly rigid, religious, I understand that,… Read more »

Vaccine mandates
October 6, 2021 5:24 pm

Why does no one mention vaccine mandates?
Or mandates in general it will control all buisness in general.

All the people that voted for adams is anti vaccine mandate.
The blacks the jews and the moderate democrats.

Adams is a Farakhan Sharpton lackey.
A Dinkens 2.0
