It's interesting that these people are the so called " orthodox leaders " who can " deliver votes". The people in Lakewood with brains who can think for themselves voted for Christie for his first term even though the lakewood vaad said to vote for Corzine. Even though corzine was for gay marriage, the vaad was willing to compromose their morals becaue Corzine was best for more government subsidies and handouts. That's not leadership. While I do think that we should have leaders, I don't think we have a very good process in place for determining who should be or is our leader. It certainly isn't the Lakewood vaad or the self appointed heads of Mosdos. I think people should start thinking for themselves. They may find getting in touch with what they really beleive and their own inner truth interesting.

Thinking for youself is interesting but that leaves Lakewood with no leverage to be able to help our town. A few ideas that were thrown around are a new Vaad with members from different areas that are nominated directly from the Tzibbur. A Mayor/town Council. This will give the population the right to choose who we want as Mayor. TERM LIMITS!!! So that influence pedling is done away with. How do we move forward with these instead of always throwing out new ideas. Focus, focus, focus on how to make these happen. Otherwise, come next January and we have no power over who becomes the new Mayor. Oh, and the Vaad knows this and they are laying low, waiting for their opportunity to jump back into the mix!!

edorsements are a joke, I dont need any group telling me how to vote, cant people think on their own ?Thats a sad statement as to a persons own ability to sort out the facts and make a eductaed decission who they should or should not vote for having a group tell them this is who you should vote for !

Christe really needs to stay away from those dirty cockroaches.

We will see when They endorse bob singer if anyone will listen to them at all. HH is running against that lowlife phony political waste of time. And the vvad will endorse singer and lose big again in our community so why is Christie bothering with these fools. He might as well get an endorsement from avi Solomon would have more sway.
