  • mendel

    Is he running unopposed? Does that mean if he gets one vote he automatically wins?

    • mendel engel

      He is not running unopposed. (Political propaganda in my view.)

  • Benjilini

    I will ALWAYS remember this special performance for my former student, “Mendy Raitport!” I am so PROUD of him that he tried to run for the NYS Assembly representing Dist#43. It was a joy for me to see at 3pm, myself, the mic guy, and Mendy’s PR guy. By 4pm, there was over 1000 people at my performance. Many children were able to assist me with my many magical effects. I was able to spread my message of “peace, respect for all people, and working together for “all” in the community!” The hundreds of smiles that day, meeting some of my old students, and “ALL” of my magical effects working to the delight of all present, will ALWAYS stay with me. I am sorry he did not win but “Pesach Sheni” teaches us, “There is a second chance.” Never give up and don’t lose hope-Try again! I am very PROUD of you!!! Benjilini/Elisha
