Vaad wants your vote
The Lakewood Vaad is running a voter registration drive in the community you can pick up registration forms in other vaad affiliated establishments. The importance of a unified block vote is tremendous and when properly utilized can benefit the community's needs. Unfortunately, the power of the block vote gets abused by individuals representing themselves to politicians on behalf of the community while the community is in the dark and its interest dont come first. There is no trust for self appointed members who have conflicts of interests when they seek favors from politicians. The town has grown tenfold, the old timers dont know the newcomers and vise versa. Communal needs have changed and it cant be ignored. Advocates for the tzibbur should have zero personal interest to truly present the block vote.
