|Erick Salgado Wins FJCC Forum|
Erick Salgado won the event by being the strongest on MBP and other religious infractions even linking MBP to the previous Bris Milah ban attempts and the FACT that gays march every single year in NY's gay "pride" parade. He further spoke about how the Jewish community came to this country for Freedom of Religion and how that is under assault. He also spoke very strongly about defending the Yeshiva Parents from high tuitions.
Rumor has it that COJO and the FJCC are very upset that Erick Salgado attended the event and even worse gained support in the Orthodox community.
From Yeshiva World News
It’s only a straw poll, so don’t give too much thought to the results. However, based on the response to our questionnaire by a diverse group of ages and gender, the results of our straw poll, conducted Tuesday night after the FJCC mayoral forum, reflect the overall public opinion polls.
There’s one exception though. Christine Quinn, who didn’t hide the fact that she’s from the LGBT community, switched places with Erick Salgado. Mr. Salgado, whose Orthodox supporters are passionate about his candidacy, got the support of 26% while Ms. Quinn was the preferred choice by 7.4%. Former Councilman Sal Albanese didn’t pick up any support among attendees at the forum. Yet he managed to impress, good enough to be considered as the second choice by 22%.
A whopping 62 percent said they do not trust the candidates based on their promises on the campaign trail while 20% said they do trust the candidates. 18% expressed no opinion.
