Jewish Press Endorses Joe Lazar for City Council


lazarThe Jewish Press endorsed Joe Lazar for City Council today, hailing Lazar as “the highly respected budget director of a major New York City agency and a recognized expert in the field of public budgeting.”

In its¬†endorsement of Lazar, The Jewish Press declared, “Lazar stands head and shoulders above the other candidates.”
Praising Lazar’s formidable record of accomplishment and rich experience in government, The Jewish Press continued, “Comparing the background and training of the candidates, Joe Lazar shines. None of the other candidates even approaches his experience in this regard… He was a pioneer in providing affordable housing in Boro Park; he contributed significantly to the growth and preservation of yeshivas; and, he played an integral role in creating programs to help Holocaust victims and children at risk. This experience in the workings of government will also be an enormous resource for constituents of the 44th district when they turn to their councilman to intercede on their behalf with city and state elected officials and administrative agencies. In sum, with Mr. Lazar, voters in the 44th district would have as their representative on the council someone who will be relied on by his colleagues as an expert in fiscal matters and treated as a serious player owing to his experience in government and his demonstrated penchant for teamwork.”

“I am thrilled that The Jewish Press, one of the most respected newspapers in our community, has endorsed my candidacy,” said Joe Lazar. “The Jewish Press is a publication that really speaks to the cares and concerns of the 44th Council District and the fact that the paper is advising their readers to vote for Joe Lazar shows how we have successfully run a campaign that really addresses the issues that matter most to the people of Borough Park, Midwood, Flatbush and Bensonhurst.”
