I vaguely recall HH making a video parroting "The Rent is Too Damned High" party. Does anyone have that video?

Going against the establishment in any community requires great wisdom and an advisor with "breite pleitzes". He does not seem at this point to have any of that. Anyone who writes against Rabbonim in ANY venue, let alone a non-Jewish one has lost all sense of perspective.

I believe that the only way to get any change in Lakewood is if a respected Rov would run for office and bring the issues to light. Hershel is not the right person - never was the right person (although I did vote for him last time).
HH will just bring scorn upon those of us who are against the status quo.

Never going to happen for as long as AK is running the show. I think our only hope right now is for HH to get close or even win the primary so someone else can run and win next year. I personally don't see an issue with HH being 1/5 people on the township committee, it's not like he would have any power.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Both NYC and Lakewood each have their own Herschel. Thankfully the Lakewood one is marginalized.

This is what reminded me to post. Compared to his other rants I actually enjoyed it.

HH seems much more thoughtful than HT.

Now there's a scary thought, huh...

HH's "packaging" is much more marketable.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

More? not saying much. Much more? You need to rethink marketing.

He looks much more presentable, and he can string together a coherent message.

No, I wouldn't hire any of them to be my spokesperson, but in comparison, HH puts HT in his back pocket.

I don't know much about the Lakewood politics, but if what he says is true, it sounds like they did a terrible job negotiating the contracts. Not sure what you could sure them for....
