Despite the fact that Williamsburg's is the Jewish Community that is most strongly effected by the anti Torah gezaros that have been passed recently, (the stores that the city is suing are in Willi, no neighborhood in the city practices MBP as much as Willi, They are the only majority Orthodox neighborhood that has a lot of toevanicks living in the area etc.) the community decided to continue supporting anti Torah political candidates. Showing the clear disregard for the Torah, is the fact that Erick Salgado did much better in the Hispanic parts of Williamsburg then the Jewish parts. Only 1%-2% of all the Jews who voted in Williamsburg decided to vote for a candidate that was supported by many rabbaniem for his stance on morality. The day before the election there was a robo-call by Rabbi Nelkenbaum (the Mirrer RY) that went out to Williamsburg urging all the Jews to vote for mayor candidate Erick Salgado the only candidate to oppose toevah. Both the Aroniem and the Nalmoniem continue to show they don't care about God or his Torah by supporting in block candidates who support kol hatoevos tachas hashemesh.
