I vote for JOSEPH. All of his screen names actually.
I think my REAL vote would go to Wolf or Mod 80 as I mentioned b4.March 25, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #1111054oomisParticipant
So nice of you, Sacrilege. And a shout-out, too! 🙂
“If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve…”March 25, 2011 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1111055GrandmasterMember
Mod-80, YW Editor, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens, the peaceful transfer of authority is rare in history, yet common in our coffee room. With a simple oath, we affirm old traditions and make new beginnings.
As I begin, I thank Mod-80 for his service to our coffee room.
And I thank The Wolf for a contest conducted with spirit and ended with grace.
I am honored and humbled to stand here, where so many of the Coffee Room’s leaders have come before me, and so many will follow.
The grandest of our ideals is an unfolding CR promise that everyone belongs, that everyone deserves a chance, that no insignificant person was ever born.
The CR, at its best, matches a commitment to principle with a concern for civility. A civil society demands from each of us good will and respect, fair dealing and forgiveness.
Some seem to believe that our politics can afford to be petty because, in a time of peace, the stakes of our debates appear small.
But the stakes for the CR are never small. If our community does not lead the cause of Torah, it will not be led. If we do not turn the hearts of children toward Torah knowledge and character, we will lose their gifts and undermine their idealism. If we fail in our charity, the vulnerable will suffer most.
Never tiring, never yielding, never finishing, we renew that purpose today, to make our community more just and generous, to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life.
This work continues. This story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm at Hashem’s behest.
G-d bless you all, and G-d bless the Coffee Room.March 25, 2011 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #1111056mw13Participant

And BPT as deputy mayor!March 25, 2011 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #1111059mw13Participant
Joseph, I don’t care how many usernames you’ve got, you still only get one vote…
I think we should set a deadline for the votes to come in (say, by exactly one week from when this topic was started) then count them up and see the results.March 26, 2011 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #1111060
i’ll also vote for oomis (i know, i know – you’ve already narrowed it down to 3, but…) – she once on one thread said i said something well. And flattery gets you everywhere in my books – it’s even better than chocolate. and that’s saying a lot.
truthfully, i think mod. 80 got the most votes already; i think he already acts like the mayor. though that’s also not fair to all those hidden tzadikkim (i mean mods) we have around here. 🙂March 27, 2011 3:44 am at 3:44 am #1111061oomisParticipant

My vote for mayor goes to the super strong dude, who will protect coffeetown from any invaders or enemies, is not afraid of taking GIANT issues head on, and shows good lifestyle examples eg only eating healthy vegetables… I refer, obviously, to Popeye Bar Abba!
And let us vote for other positions within our town.
As deputy mayor, for also eating heartily, and for being equally strong in repelling those with a lifestyle on a tangent with his beliefs, I hereby nominate Obelix.
The position of town detective surely goes to the proven, internationally acclaimed sleuth, Tintin, backed up by the skills of Sherlock Holmes.
Town inventor position to help with all moral and social crimes goes to someone who’s ideas are just out of this world: Dr Middos.
Anyone have any other nominations?March 27, 2011 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #1111066
I’m very insulted, I leave the CR for 3 weeks, and everyone forgets about me!?!March 27, 2011 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #1111067candy613Member

In retrospect, I’m kinda glad to see that I’m not getting the votes.
This way, I can stick to what I do best; writing targeted op-eds, and blog posts, which (as we all know) runs the political process, without all the oversight.
Now then.. who wants to win an election?March 29, 2011 5:49 am at 5:49 am #1111076☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Yes, but in truth I didn’t nominate you for the same reason I didn’t nominate anybody else 😉August 16, 2011 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #1111077
