Why did we vote?
Prior to an election, self appointed askanim trot out delivering scare tactics forcing the tzibbur to the polls and vote for their picked candidates. For years the issue of courtesy busing was always raised as a privilege that the tzibbur would loose if they dont vote for the Vaad backed candidates. The familiar calls are, "this is the most crucial elections in recent history" or this vote will decide the future of the kehilla. Other threats as, never has the future of the kehilla been at stake, it will effect each each and every person in Lakewood bla bla bla.. Contrary to the scare tactics the truth came out, we are at a stage of loosing courtesy busing, despite having the vaad backed candidates in office. Property taxes shot up 13% with the Vaad backed committeemen in office. This after continuous promises to lower or keep taxes down. The Tzibbur is not fools the game is up.
