We All Need More Simcha

This picture is worth a thousand words, but let me add this:

On Tuesday, community-wide leaders across our entire community turned out to endorse and support NYC Deputy Comptroller Simcha Felder for the new State Senate "Super Jewish" District seat. This was truly a historical moment that can lead to a historical opportunity.

Simcha was my former Chief of Staff and went on to be enormously successful in serving the community as City Councilman. He is trustworthy, honorable, a man of his word. A life-long member of our community who has proven his dedication to community needs time and again.

We’ve already accomplished so much in Albany this year for the community—from CAP to transportation for our yeshiva students. But there’s still so much more to do, especially during these difficult times. We have to stay united as a community and we also need the government as our partner. Our job as elected officials is to see to it that our community gets its fair share. This is really starting to happen now and with myself in the Assembly, Councilman Greenfield on the City Council, and G-d willing Simcha Felder in the State Senate, we will bring home the Pastrami.
