Frum Flatbush Woman Running for NY State Senate


mindy-meyerFor the first time, a frum woman is running for office in the New York State Senate.

22-year-old Mindy Meyer, a law student from Flatbush, Brooklyn, is running on the Republican platform against Democratic State Sen. Kevin Parker.

A lifelong Flatbush resident, Mindy is actually the first young woman in the history of New York to run for New York State Senate. Mindy is the candidate for both the Republican and Conservative party lines and intends to utilize her religious values and moral compass as her guide.

“I can tell you one thing. I have no experience in corruption,” said Mindy. “This is how politics has to change. There is always corruption, but I have the intention to follow my values and ensure that none of what happens in my district is corrupt.

“I am looking forward to accomplishing for the 21st District that which the incumbent has not done for over ten years. I am excited by the prospect of employing new programs in our district to make a real difference in the lives of the people who matter most, the individuals of our community,” said Mindy, formerly a judicial intern for Hon. Judge Rivera in the Kings County Supreme Court.

Mindy’s campaign runs across the board from supporting school choice, stopping stop and frisk, advocating for victims of domestic violence, and implementing programs to help with employment and education.

Mindy says she is eager to jump start her campaign and utilize the resources that will enable her to combat the most pressing issues facing our community.

“By identifying existing programs and assessing our community needs,” says Mindy, “we will shape our own plan for a better future.”

Mindy received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Touro College. She is currently working for a real-estate attorney in Flatbush and attending the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in Central Islip, New York, in the evening.
“We endorsed her,” said Jerry Kassar, chairman of Brooklyn’s Conservative party. “We filed her petitions on the conservative party line and we anticipate her being a strong candidate. We were very excited after we met with her and I say she will be formidable and a strong contender. She has a maturity and an ability well beyond her years.”

  1. Will Matzav act mature & show us a picture of Ms Meyer, just like you show a picture of every other candidate, or will you act pull a Sara Palin & discriminate against Frum women?!

  2. 1) Is she married?
    2) Will she stand with David Storobin & vote down toeivah Marriage?
    3) Is she related to Yanky Meyer of Misaskim?

  3. Why is Tznius Police asking for a picture of her on this website? There is no reason for Matzav to be showing pictures of women on this website.
