Gov. Kathy Hochul tried to gain support among New York’s frum kehillos today, releasing a new letter in which she promised to support and help the Jewish community, asking for their vote in the gubernatorial election next Tuesday, November 8.
“I recognize that education is an important value in the Jewish community, and I want to assure everyone that Jewish schools will always be treated with fairness and respect,” Hochul wrote.
“As lieutenant governor, I visited many Jewish summer camps in the Catskill mountains, and I got to see, firsthand the wonderful children coming through our yeshiva system across our great state. As governor, my understanding of, and appreciation for the Jewish community has grown even stronger.
“I ask you for your support in this upcoming election and look forward to continuing to serve as your governor.”
