Sanitation District Fiasco

The candidate of the Orthodox community got his butt kicked by the incumbent in an election for a seat on the Sanitary District Board.

I thought it was a mistake to contest this silly election. There are only so many times you can go to the well and the Orthodox community would be well advised to spend its political capital wisely, i.e., on school board elections.

As an aside, I also take all these elections as a sign that we should should seriously be considering aliyah rather than getting involved in this silliness. At least in Israel, your political battles are meaningful).

    Plenty of great reasons to move to Israel. Their political system is NOT one of them.

    I understand...but at least if you get into a fight it might have meaning. Not a fight over garbage in Lawrence.

    Agreed totally MoC. More importantly, why do you want to start up with "connected" goyim - we gain nothing!?
