Elections

The elections for Va'ad Hakahol and Gabbaim of 770 are coming up. I don't think I'm eligible to vote, and it's a shame I wasn't eligible to run.
I don't know who the candidates are, but I urge my readers to follow this advice while voting:
Choose whichever candidate says he'll stop the sermons in 770 on Shabbos.
Seriously, I sit three rows behind the bima and I can never hear a word. It's a waste of 15 minutes. The only times I've heard the speaker were when it was Yossi Jacobson, or R' Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin's son a few weeks back, begging the Crown Heights community to continue supporting his father b'gashmius u'bruchnius.
Anyone else who speaks does so to .01% of the parishioners.
