10:00PM EST: [VIDEOS & PHOTO LINKS BELOW] avid Greenfield has just won the hotly contested special election for the 44th City Council seat vacated by Simcha Felder.

Never before has a local election taken the Orthodox community with such emotions and opinions. Boro park was flooded with various pieces of literature, posters, bumper stickers, and vehicles blaring their campaign messages all through the streets of Flatbush and Boro park.

Greenfield just told YWN “I thank the community for our victory. This is not my victory this is the peoples victory. It’s time to bring this community together. I look forward to working with everyone in the community.”

YWN congratulates our dear friend Councilman David Greenfield, and are sure that he will represent all members of the community to the best of his ability.

  1. Mazal Tov David. Your actions until now spoke more than words and that’s why you are now our new councilman elect.
    May Hashem guide you every step of the way, and may you be able to serve your constituents and their needs with health and happiness.

    On another note, Joe Lazar we hope you continue working to help the klal as you did until now.

  2. Mazel Tov David!

    Integrity and Honesty prevailed!

    May you continue to be Matzliach to serve us as you did till now and grow to greater heights. And I know you will, but remember, you are the people’s candidate and don’t break under pressure from the Hikind allies. You took on Brad Lander and continue fighting such policies that are immoral and anti-religious views.

    Hikind, sorry for your loss, next time know better, threats and intimidations are history! People are tired and fed up with the way you play politics with us. Brace for a campaign, because you’re next!

    We all see that ‘Sheker Ein Lo Raglayim’ and they fell big-time!

    Signing Mitoch Simcha that finally most fellow Jews got together to support true Achdus,
    Dave Hirsch

  3. MAZEL TOV TOV TOV!!!!

    David we couldn’t be happier for you. Eventhough I don’t live in your district, that didn’t stop me from praying and rooting for you!!

    Well deserved, and we wish you all the best!

  4. Yes! Congratulasions our dear R’ Duvid!
    R’ Duvid! You didn’t simply win, but with a landslide!
    That’s all because you’re an ‘ish emes’ & people are not blind!…
    R’ Duvid we gave you the win with a landslide, cause we really believe in you.
    Now it’s your time to keep your promices & show us what you can do!
    R’ Duvid! The community is looking forword working ‘together’ with you!…

  5. This proofs my point. The so called community leader don’t lead anybody but them self. If you want to win elections you have to listen to the small guy.

  6. Mazel Tov and congrats! My whole family voted for Greenfield. I’m. So happy he won! Baruch Hashem. I really look forward to seeing the positive changed that Greenfield will make for his constituents. He’s a real class act who cares about the Klall.

    may hashem help you to go From strength to strength .
    i am so happy the days of Hikind are over.
    and hope and pray to see the end of the Hikind days very soon.
    god is being good to the jews

  8. Hikind will soon claim that he’s “best friends” with Greenfield, and that he actually helped him win.

    I can just hear the radio show this motzei shabbos.

    More lying from Hikind and Co. coming up.

  9. Shelly Silver is probably crying with Hikind right now.

    Two biggest losers around.

    I feel bad for Lazar. Hikind will never talk to him again. Lazar does not realize what Hikind is all about. He probably forgot the name Lazar already.

  10. I personally had spoken to dozens of people on my block telling them to vote Greenfield. I am so happy I was able to contribute.

    It’s much better to win by a landslide then a few lousy points.

    Good riddence to the Hikind machine.

  11. Can Lazar please send his twin sons back to my block and pick up all the Greenfield signs that they personally ripped down late Thursday night (that we captured on video)?

    Not to mention that they hung Lazar posters in their place.

    How low.

    Boruch Hahem David won. A really sweet erlich honest person.

  12. mazel tov very proud of his mother that raised such a son!! mazel tov again
    your father is smiling from shomayim. dont forget to help all the yidden just like your father and mother always did . bhatzlacha

  13. GREAT!!! The Moysdes and Kehiles got a good setback tonight!!! They ran after Lazar out of fear that some rich guy wont $$$$support them anymore. Kehiles were ready to throw us all under the bus and give us Lazar just cuz a few powerful people wanted so, but we all decided that we will NOT be stepped on anymore, and we voted for Greenfield.

    I doubt that much will change with just 1 new person at the Council, but the election did what was long in the coming: Moysdes and Kehila bosses who cater only a few and themselves while using their power to have the gullible public to follow like donkeys, got kicked where it hurts.

    I hope voters in all Jewish areas will from now on look beyond the “Kehilas” and “Moysdes” request, and vote for the candidate that they, the voters, believe and see is right for them!

    hahahah…

  14. The real winner in this campaign is the Brooklyn Syrian community who have bankrolled Greenfield and now have their man in office. The real loser is Agudath Israel who no longer has a candidate as a city council member. It really speaks to the demographics of the Brooklyn jewish community.

  15. dov hikind is stiing and reading all these comments at home now.

    gotta be a sight to see.

    tisha b’av in nissan.

    the community has had enough. his time is up. and he can ignore these comments, but today’s election speaks for itself. weve had enough, and are fed up

  16. Ha. The other jewish website is making it look all pretty now. They are the big loseres. They would never approve one comment which was pro-Greenfield.

    Their day will soon come too.

  17. People have spoken and are just fuming at the mosdos as is obvious from the numbers today.

    Enough of the terror, arm-twisting, backroom deals, PHONY askanim, organizations, and the rest of the gangsters.

    We took our streets back, and there is more to come.

  18. I don’t live in NYC, but listen to David every week speak at his weekly audio show on YWN. The man is highly intelligent, and speaks the truth.

    I actually miss the weekly show.

    I hope it will resume soon.

    Thanks, and mazel tov.

  19. SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS ON YWN. YOU ARE ALL DOPES. I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR LOUSY COUNCILMAN. I MYSELF AM HAPPY I LEFT NYC FOR THE 5 TOWNS. LESS DOLTS. REAL ACHDUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Great news indeed.
    This was a message to Hikind and co. David it was nice to see you in Bobov this morning!! As far as Agudah goes, shame on them for folding in into the Chicago politics of Hikind.

  21. Yes! Just about time the individual ‘PEOPLE’ Spoke, & not getting effected by the terror & force of the old fasiond polititions!
    HIKIND! YOUR DAYS ARE OVER! IT’S JUST ABOUT TIME FOR A NEW STUNING GENERASION!
    GO DAVID GO!…

  22. Working closely w/ Joe on the election was a honor & i would do it all over again. At the same time I salute David for the come from behind victory no matter what tactics he used. Joe to me is the true example of a mentch that is too good for the political cesspool.

    Benzie

  23. Replying to Shmerel.
    You said it yourself, ‘Lazar is a mench ect. That doesent mean he’s good for politics.
    WHAT WE NEED IS A ‘REAL’ POLOTITION!…

  24. I hope the politicians will learn from this not to poter after the few selfish politicians like Dov, Julius, and Shmuel.
    Great clean campaign, David.
    Please stay yourself, and don’t turn into a politician.

  25. When the Hon. David greenfield came to our school “Yeshivas Tiferes Shulem” about three weeks ago to speak to our teen-aged students and inspire and motivate them to fulfill their potentials, I immediately knew that David will be receiving my endorsement.

    He related to our students in a way no one else was able to, he gave our students hope and aspirations in educating themselves and being the best they can possibly be. Thats what David Greenfield is all about.

    I strongly believed that David was an opportunity for our community to have real and strong representation in the city council!

    I’d like to wish Councilman David Greenfield good luck in all your endeavourers, and know that were all rooting for you!

  26. R’ Duvid! I saw the pictures, the enthusiesum that surrounded you.
    But never forget that ‘we the people’ bought you into office.
    & never ever turn your back on us as an polotition. Thanks.
    Speaking for the voters…

  27. I am sure you all remember what I said a few weeks ago. This election be like the Lakewood Vaad endorsing Corzine BUT thwe whole community voted for Chritie. I WAS RIGHT. Learn A lesson Listen to the community and don’t think they will follow blindly.

  28. Ironic how my comment on the over liberal freedom-of-press policy of YWN in publishing readers’ derogatory/senseless comments was censored! (Though, in all fairness, it did publish my now non sequitur postscript.)
