Baltimore, Maryland – Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder travelled to Baltimore on Sunday to attend a fundraiser hosted by Dr. & Mrs. Thomas Azman and the entire Azman family in support of Issac “Yitzy’ Schleifer who is running for Baltimore City Council in the 5th District, which includes the orthodox Jewish communities of Baltimore.
Goldfeder encouraged the crowd of over 100 to utilize this unique opportunity to support the energetic and uniquely qualified Schleifer in his bid for the seat. The Assemblyman also touched on his own experiences as a frum elected official in a multicultural urban district.
“The single greatest lesson I’ve learned from my four years in office is that if you do your job with passion and energy, people will take note,” said Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder. “This has always driven me in my work to help families back home in Queens and today I see this same excitement and sense of duty in Yitzy Schleifer. Yitzy will be tremendous advocate for families in the 5th District and a true source of pride for the larger frum community around the country.”
