Frum bloc wins in Monsey

Journal News:

The final tally of the race for town supervisor could be a civics lesson.
Certified last week, the results tallied by the Rockland County Board of Elections showed that incumbent Christopher St. Lawrence beat Joseph Brennan by 4,295 votes, or 13,242 to 8,947.
Brennan's camp, the grass-roots Preserve Ramapo, emphasized its need to overcome the Monsey bloc vote.
Yet the results showed that, to paraphrase Woody Allen, the bloc vote had an impact because it showed up.
At Election District 55, the Gruss Girls School in New Square, 836 of 999 registered voters went to the polls, or more than 83 percent.
St. Lawrence got all 836 votes.
A similar turnout was evident at Election District 58, also in New Square, where nearly 80 percent, or 791 of 995 registered voters cast ballots.
That district gave St. Lawrence 790 votes to Brennan's one.
In Election District 35 at the Viznitz School in Monsey, St. Lawrence got 953 votes to Brennan's two.
The election drew 69 percent of the 1,394 registered voters in District 35. There were seven blank ballots....

do no one any good and only magnify the split amongst "anshei shloimenu"

Partly due to a paper calling preserve ramapo anti-semitic even though one of their candidates was a frum yid!

What a surprise. The corrupt machine wins again. Reminds me of Lakewood.
