Do you think Lakewood municipal policy is doing well? Then vote for the incumbent.
If you think that there are unaddressed issues vote for the challenger

My opinion: D'elia, the incumbent on the committee, is a harmless guy, basically a local Joe Biden, who does what he is told and fills a seat on the committee so no troublemaker can take it.
I like him as a person, and he will win anyways, so:
You should vote for HH precisely because he will lose.

I'm willing to put money down that he will lose. But if he gets a substantial number of votes, it will scare the establishment. If he gets nothing, they will know that they have nothing to fear and can continue to operate with no oversight and zero transparency.
You do have two votes, so you can either use your second choice to vote for the third guy (the Vaad's designated loser), write in any friend of yours who will get a kick out of appearing on the vote list, or leave it blank.

Regarding House, vote for Singer. He's a good guy, and will win anyways, so it doesn't hurt for him to know that he got Lakewood's support. Alter Eliezer Richter is nuts, and while he represents something worthwhile, he's not serious enough to even waste a vote on.
For Senate, I'm really not sure. Vaad endorsed Singh, but I think it's only because:
But's it's also possible that Rik Mehta won the party line in most NJ counties, but not in Ocean, which is arguably the most important one (being that it is most densely Republican).
I don't know who is better. Singh is a failed candidate, having lost for gov and house previously. Mehta is a first timer, but he was previously a Democrat and switched parties, though he vows that he is the real Donald Trump supporter on the ballot.

Either way, none of them have a serious chance against Cory Booker, so it doesn't really matter.

(I feel like I just wrote a @Dan post on DDMS. How did I do?)

Here is the issue with that. It is not considered a respectable thing in Lakewood to run for pubic office, unless you are backed by rabbonim and/or the Vaad, and you are thereby doing avodas hakodesh by dedicating your life to the tzibur. It is also a dangerous prospect to go against the vaad, as your kids can be kicked out of school etc. That said, because you will be hard pressed to find rabbonim that will endorse a candidate against the vaad, it will be virtually impossible to find a respectable candidate who will run against the establishment. Who wants to throw away the good things they have to fight a losing battle against the establishment? The outcome of this is that virtually any candidate who runs independently is by nature not a competent person, or they are too extreme.

Someone once recommended this guy as someone who pays a lot. I used him and found him good. He's not from Lakewood but he services Lakewood. I think he's from Trenton or Camden maybe.
609-396-3002.

IDK who I'm going to vote for for Senate. I was considering Mehta, but his endorsement of Alter Eliezer Richter turned me off a little bit.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

He never endorsed him. Did you see this anywhere besides Shore News Network? Because that is completely fake news.

That's probably where I saw it, I just looked back at it now and saw what they did there. Definitely fake news.
