New York -  New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is marshaling his supporters in the Hasidic community to solicit donations in Yiddish for his presidential campaign.

Leaders in the Satmar movement who are close to de Blasio have sent out an appeal online and over the messaging app WhatsApp urging Hasidim to donate at least $1 to his campaign, according to Politico. The message says de Blasio been a reliable advocate for the Satmar movement’s interests as mayor.

The Satmar movement is divided into two factions, one of which supported de Blasio’s mayoral campaign. He has since backed their policy priorities in office.

De Blasio has been earning little to no support in polls of the Democratic presidential candidates. He needs 130,000 individual donors in order to qualify for next month’s party debate.

The Satmar appeal, according to Politico, is made in the name of people “who work together with the faithful [community leaders] who are in constant contact with the government to lobby on a number of issues on behalf of our holy institutions and communities and for individuals who need help and to represent your interests.”

“By donating the dollar you support your needs, the entire Haredi Orthodox public and our rights and needs.”

Inaccurate headline. His bid isn't "faltering", it was a joke from the start.

There has not been so much crime in the last 20 summers in Brooklyn. Every day you wake up and see what a good job Shomrim made apprehending suspects, its like in the 1980’s

We Yidden have the mida of hakoras hatov. From the days DeBlasio was a councilman in Boro Park and until today he has been there for our communities. It is also EXTREMELY important to be registered as a Democrat in New York, so that your voices are heard in the primaries. Otherwise, all you’ll have are liberal democrats like AOC and Cabin winning the elections in New York. Do you want Corey Johnson as our next mayor? He's much worse than DeBlasio. In the election, by all means, vote republican.

"Hakaras hatov" doesn't override our moral obligation to vote for the most reasonable candidate. De Blasio has gone crazy in recent years. He doesn't believe in property, and he has abandoned New York to go campaigning for an election he can't win.

DeBlasio has been a great friend of the Frum communities and I totally agree and we should show Hakoras Hatov to him. He is a far better friend to the Frum communities then for example Mike Bloomberg. With all the anti-semites in the Democrat party, it is refreshing to have a Mayor that is not an anti-semite and pro Israel. We should appreciate it. And you can criticize Gov. Cuomo - but he is also a great friend to the Frum community and very pro Israel. I appreciate the both of them.

You obviously misunderstood what he wrote he agrees with you he's not arguing.
If you're registered as a Republican in new York then you can't vote in the democratic primary's and since new York is mostly Democrats your vote will only be useful in the general elections. But if you register as a Democrat then you can vote in the primaries for whichever Democrat is the less evil of the choices and when it comes to the general elections you can still vote for the Republican candidate

In short: a registered Democrat can't vote in a Republican primary and vice versa and the only time you can vote either way is the general elections so being that new York is mostly democratic you should register as a Democrat so that your vote can always count not just once every 4 years

Send him an email that says Thank You. Sending him your money, even a dollar is silly. You won't get a mitzvah for that. Moreover, that dollar in a pushka guarantees you a mitzvah with Olam Haboh and peiros in Olam Hazeh.

#11 and #13 thank you for telling us verbatim what the askanim of Aguda who march with de blasio at the parade tell you, you are just part of their system and I am sure they have daas Torah behind them when all else fails. Neturei Karta/ Satmar are really going beyond the realm of normal actions for a frum person they are no better than Chovei Torah who support sick "pride" marriage, NK/Satmar march with anti Semites and now support for president a man who is best friends with linda sarsour and stands for everything against our values.

Comrade DeBlaz is a failure as Mayor. Homeless? Housing scandal? Bd of Education? Ferry bankruptcy? Traffic? Subways mess? But he's been 'good to frum Jews'? LOL He's a bad bad mayor so he's not good for anyone.

When Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia (whose Mother was Jewish), was campaigning for office, he would often speak Yiddish in Jewish neighborhoods.

Was he pro sicko marriage? Was he for child murder? Satmar only cares for themselves only and support anti semites

Okay. So please be so kind as to name at least ONE good thing he has done for us in the past -- besides getting up late.

I'll repeat what I wrote in post #11
