Brooklyn, NY - Jewish Press Endorses Rival Of Simcha Felder In Senate Primary

Brooklyn, NY - Kendall Stewart, 21st SD (D-Boro Park, Flatbush, Kensington, Midwood) — Dr. Kendall Stewart is completing his second term as a member of the New York City Council representing the 45th Council District (which includes Boro Park, Flatbush and East Flatbush) where he has served with distinction and built a close working relationship with the Jewish community. On the other hand, we’ve become disenchanted over the past two years with incumbent senator Kevin Parker’s lack of responsiveness to our community. The third candidate is Councilman Simcha Felder, certainly no stranger to our community and certainly a positive force on the City Council. However, after initially announcing a run for the office of NYC Comptroller and later for Brooklyn Borough President, he belatedly shifted to a race for the Senate seat in the 21st SD, well past the time we had committed to Dr. Stewart and any reasonable period for possible reconsideration. In any event, we wholeheartedly support Dr. Stewart.
