The New York City Board of Election ruled that Abraham Tischler’s bogus School Choice line cannot appear on the November ballot because he failed to obtain the required number of valid signatures.
“We thank the Board for seeing through the farce,” said E. O’Brien Murray, Simcha Felder’s campaign manager. “Voters know that Simcha Felder is the only candidate in this race who actually faces the daily challenge of paying Yeshiva tuition. Simcha has been at the forefront fighting for Yeshiva parents, and he’s been a leader in the fight for vouchers, restoring $16 million for vouchers,” said Murray.
“Simcha Felder is the only candidate in this race who has paid Yeshiva tuition. Having sent all his children to Yeshivos, Simcha knows the challenges families face every day,” concluded Murray.
Simcha Felder is running in the newly formed 17th Senate District that encompasses Borough Park, Flatbush, Midwood, Kensington and Sunset Park. Felder is currently New York City’s Deputy Comptroller for Budget and Accounting. He served the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Kensington and Flatbush in the City Council from 2002 through 2010.
