joe-lazar[Video below.] A spokeswoman for Comptroller John Liu today chastised City Council hopeful Joe Lazar for distributing literature that seems to imply he has been endorsed man he’s trying to replace, Simcha Felder, in tomorrow’s 44th CD special election. The mailer quotes Felder saying: “I want to thank Joe Lazar for all the help he has given our community.” There’s no indication as to when or where the former councilman made that statement.Felder referred a call seeking comment to Liu spokeswoman Sharon Lee, who said:

“(Felder) has not and will not be involved in the race. Any photos or literature insinuating the deputy comptroller’s support were unauthorized.”

Felder departed his seat on the Council to join Liu’s staff as deputy comptroller for budget and accounting, leaving shortly after he was sworn for a third term.

Lazar’s chief competition in the 44th CD is David Greenfield, who, like Felder, used to work for Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

  1. The metzius is:

    When a person is oseik betzorchai tzibbur b’emunah he has siyata dishmaya. As soon as the person throws away the mitzva and starts doing things for kavod and power the siyata dishmaya is over.

    Therefore, if people are appreciative for the tuition vouchers then have that person help the community with siyata dishmaya. Working as a councilman is not where you will see any bracha.

    Vote your conscience, but vote wisely.

  2. Firstly, just because a Rebbe or Rav shook his hand, it doesn’t mean that he endorsed him.

    Secondly, note that some local Rebbes/Rabbonim are missing from the video.

    Finally, I don’t understand how the two voices at the end can each claim that they belong to multiple Hassidic groups. Midevar sheker tirchok….

  3. It has been verified that printed Signs are posted today in Yeshivos Chaim Berlin, Torah Vadaas, Torah Temima, Ateres Torah, Chofetz Chayim, Mir and Lederman

    signed by the “VAAD HAYESHIVOS OF FLATBUSH” urging everyone to vote

    “LMAAN KEVOD HARABONIM” (vehmaivin yovin) and “LETOELES HAYESHIVOS” & “THEIR PARENTS”

    FOR DOVID GREENFIELD FOR CITY COUNCIL
