Neighbors in the Jackson Orthodox Jewish Community today are congratulating the newly-elected officials on their wins.“Senator Sam Thomson has shown true leadership, and together with his colleagues, Assemblymen Clifton and Dancer, we wish them the best of luck in their new term,” says Yehuda Sussman, a long-time Jackson resident.
There is also an outpouring of congratulations to Mrs. Sharon Dey and Mrs. Tara Rivera on being elected to serve the citizens of Jackson on the Board of Ed.
“Mrs. Sharon Dey has much experience in running the district and she received much support from Jackson residents, including Orthodox. Her failed opponent ran on a failed platform of divisiveness and the voters Jackson widely rejected that,” says Sussman. “Sharon Dey’s leadership skills and experience have helped the district provide the highest level of education for all of its students. She has a willingness and ability to balance the needs of all of Jackson’s taxpayers. Mrs Rivera brings expertise in advocating for special needs to the board that will be a major plus to our district. Her ability to connect to officials on all levels of government – no matter their political affiliation – will help make the Jackson School District an even better and stronger district.”
According to Mordy Burnstein of the Jackson Eruv Association, “I got hundreds of calls, emails and text messages expressing support for these candidates because they ran on positive unifying platforms that did not seek to exclude or target anyone in Jackson – they are worthy leaders.”
bh..say no to hate
Proud of the Jackson Orthodox community for not letting themselves get trampled by some of our elected officials. Time for them to take notice.
From a Goyish. (Did I get that right?)
Stephanie,your last line is adorable.
@Stephane: you got that right! Thanks for your support! When there is love there is peace. When there is peace we are content. When we are content we are successful. When we are successful we can love! Follow my drift…?
Stephanie that line is hilarious! Yes, you got it pretty much right.
(And attention oilem. In case you were wondering why many of your comments don’t get posted…this is probably the reason. There are (and a fact I hear from my non-jewish co-workers) 1,000s of non-jewish people reading this site daily from around lkwd and surrounding townships and even the state. So kudos to the scoop for ensuring the forums meet the standards of kashrus. There are MANY things whihc should not be placed on a public forum. And many foolish people out there who will speak freely as if it was just a shmooze in shul or something.)
Thank u for always posting words of support and inclusiveness!
