(EXCLUSIVE VIDEO LINK AT END OF ARTICLE) As was announced last night on YWN, Simcha Felder lost the race for Kevin Parker’s current seat in the NYS Senate. Felder’s two-term limit as NYC Councilman is ending, and was hoping to land himself in Parker’s seat.
Surprisingly, sources tell YWN that the numbers show that the Frum community did make an effort to vote, and can very well be considered as record numbers for the Frum vote in the Boro Park area.
Upon seeing Simcha Felder enter the restaurant, Jewish Radio DJ Nachum Segal and the guests gathered all began clapping and cheering for him – to which Simcha humorously said “your not supposed to be clapping at a wake”.
Simcha’s eight minute speech was riddled with humor, and tried to uplift the “down” crowd.
He spoke about his future aspirations, by saying “I can’t discuss them publicly yet, and I like to keep reporters in suspense, so I won’t tell you what I’m running for next.”
YWN would like to wish our dear friend Simcha Felder the best of luck in all his future endeavours!
