Beit Shemesh residents who oppose Moshe Abutbol need to vote for his replacement

MK Ayelet Shaked said that all Beit Shemesh residents who find the corrupt Shas mayor's behavior abhorrent need to work to get him voted out:
After months of waiting and acrimony on both sides, candidates to lead the city of Beit Shemesh will face off for a second time next Tuesday. The elections, said Jewish Home MK Ayelet Shaked, are so close that “the decision as to who wins may come down to just a few votes.”

The elections pit incumbent Moshe Abutbul, identified with the hareidi community, against Eli Cohen, championed by the secular and most of the Religious Zionist community. The High Court in February upheld a lower court’s decision in favor of reelections, due to allegations of fraud during the municipal elections in the city in 2013. Abutbul, who won the 2013 vote, had appealed against the court order to hold new elections. Abutbul argued that the 2013 elections represented the democratic choice made by Beit Shemesh residents. [...]

Many secular and Religious-Zionists residents of Beit Shemesh have been bristling over the way Abutbul has been managing the city throughout his term, claiming that he favors hareidi groups, and has engineered the allocation of housing tenders to ensure a solid hareidi majority. There have been numerous incidents of tension between the hareidi and non-hareidi communities over the past several years.

Touring Beit Shemesh Thursday, Shaked said that “these elections will determine the identity of the city in the coming years. Every vote is important. Evey Beit Shemesh resident must take personal responsibility for the situation, and go out to vote, bringing change to the city.”
Absolutely right.
