Brooklyn, NY - The leadership of Williamsburg ’s Jewish community extends its congratulations to Senator-Elect Daniel Squadron on his victory in yesterday’s Democratic primary, and we hope and expect to work closely with him.

Williamsburg has always showed its gratitude to the elected officials who have served us so well and for so long. Senator Connor deserves our respect and accordingly won by a margin of two to one in the predominantly Jewish election districts in Williamsburg.

Senator-Elect Squadron, as our new state senator, will be able to count on our full support going forward as he moves to implement our shared vision for more affordable housing, improved social services, enhanced workforce development, better police protection and all the other issues critical to continued growth and success in our community.

We look forward to working with Senator-Elect Squadron for the betterment of our community, our district, our borough and our city.

here you go, i knew that this will come one day!.

"We look forward to working with Senator-Elect Squadron for the betterment of our community, our district, our borough and our city"

Mr. neiderman will grab him into UJO and start over the old stuff, i think it should be a good idea that UJ CARE should start working hand by hand with squadron to fix back the comunity funds the way it belongs

seems to me that UJCares (for nobody but themselves)lost the vote 6-1 in Hasidic E.D.s and is unlikely to be any more helpful to Squadron than the paltry few votes they brought out. Besides all they do is one time a year events and then praise themselves for the rest of the year.

Is he, in fact, a Senator-elect? He won the primary, not the general election. Even if he has no opponent in the general election, he still could (theoretically) lose to a write-in candidate.

squadron is aware of the fact that when he's up for reelection he'll receive support from UJO if he works with them. UJ Care, on the other hand, will give their support only if he has a good chance to get reelected. if he has a strong opponent UJ Care will support the other guy. that's why, in my opinion, he's not gona show to favortism to either UJO or UJ care.

UJO's statement that "Williamsburg has always showed its gratitude to the elected officials who have served us so well and for so long" is a lie. When Schumer ran against D’Amato who had seniority as a three term senator, Williamsburg nevertheless endorsed Schumer and forgot that D’Amato was one of the best fighters for us. Shame on them for their hypocrisy of "hakoras hatov". Where was "hakoras hatov" then?

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT DANIEL SQUADRON WILL NEED THE HELP FROM UJO

UJO BROUGHT IN ALMOST 2900 VOTES
VS
THE UJCARE BROUGHT ONLY 1548 VOTES

ITS THE NUMBERS THATS COUNT //STUPID//

UJO has past a difficult test with flying colors!

It showed everyone that they are people of appreciation & don't back away even when its tuff & the candidate is going to loose.

Believe me all politicians know in the bottom of thier hearts who the people they can trust is!!!

And UJO has double the amount of votes then UJcare.

No, a lot of people who support UJCare voted for Connor, me included, because of hakoras hatov. The Aaronim with all the non-Satmarer in Williamsburg are two thirds of Williamsburg. If UJO wants the support of non-Satmarer in Williamsburg, then they should stop taking the side of the Zalonim who are stepping on us, most noticeable with harassing and intimidating those carrying with the eiriv.

I'm thinking that this is a little too little a litle too late. man did they call this one bad. UJO better resign themselves to the fact that UJCARE won this battle and go back in bed w/ vito a little while until its safe to come out. This is an Congratulating

See the link to NY Observer.
http://www.observer.com/files/FinalResultsOlderVersion.xls

Here you can see in the first tab the Williamsburg numbers. Connor won Williamsburg 65-35, went for Satmar Williamsburg/UJO/Rabbi Niederman. Satmar Upstate/UJCare/Rabbi Glantz were crushed by the vast majority of willilamsburg.

Once again it shows that the Majority of Williamsburg are not stupid and will not follow the propoganda but will support the respect and responsible community leaders. In a fight between the 2 satmars, Satmar Williamsburg won. In the fight between the 2 organizations, UJO won. In the fight between Rabbis Niederman and Glantz, Rabbi Niederman won and won big time even though the Aroinis conducted an unprecedanted nasty personal campaign against him with a 20 page newspaper full of false propoganda and personal dirt on the respected Rabbi Niederman

Lesson to Isac Abraham, look at the votes before commiting significant funds to your campaign....

For those who don't know, here is the picture. UJO supports the Zalonim, and UJCare is a newly created organization by the Aaronim who felt that UJO betrayed them.

Get the facts straight:

#1. Many new young voters could not vote for Squadron because they do not live in his Senate district. The 25th does not cover Williamsburg's expanded territories on the North & South (incl. Clinton Hill, etc.). Also, many newly registered voters were not in the system yet, courtesy of the slow Board of Elections. These people will be able to vote & make a difference in a broader local election, i.e. congressman, mayor.

#2 Even if Connor had more votes in the 25th, Williamsburg is not KJ. Many non Jews voted, most likely for Connor who was supported by their friend, Vita Lopez.

Bottom Line: UJCare is stronger than u think.

YOU JUST WANT TO JUSTIFY THE CREATION OF UJCARE ON THE EXPENSE OF UJO SO YOU WANT TO DISCREDIT THE UJO

THEY NEVER BETRAYED ANYONE

#3 in the Heyward polling site where there is almost only yidden the difference was 585 for UJCare and 1231 for UJO which comes out to a 68-32 Connor. Seems to me that if there were any hispanic or other non Jewish votes in the other Williamsburg polling sites, they most have went strongly for Squadron thereby bringing down the Connor total from 68% in the heyward site to an average of 65% overall

 Sep 11, 2008 at 05:27 PM THINKER Says:

THE BOTTOMLINE IS PEOPLE DO NOT GO OUT AND VOTE

WillyMom

I dont think you deserve an answer after such a big lei without getting red (even saying check out the facts) I assume when you have the facts and you see the aroiny DailyNews """Note that contrary to my earlier report, Squadron actually lost every single ED to Connor in Williamsburg, although they came within one vote of each other - 1 for Connor and 0 from Squadron in the 103rd ED - and were separated by just a few votes in several others.

Williamsburg showed a massive increase in turnout between the 2006 Democratic primary and this one, going up 154.43 percent. Connor received 90.86 percent of the vote there when he ran against Diamondstone two years ago, but only 64.83 percent to Squadron's 35.17 percent on Tuesday."""" http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/

You will still trust and approve only Der Blatt numbers

I agree iwth the poster that states that Glantz is an asken and works for the community. However, I also am appalled at the actions against Niederman. When politics reigns, it becomes more about the individuals, and less about the community.

I think its great that there are now 2 organizations you can count on to fight for the community.

Can they stop acting like a bunch of 2-year olds?
