Party taken from Matzav.com:
Andrew Yang said he would not take action to boost secular education in yeshivos if elected mayor of New York City, staking out a position likely to win him support in Brooklyn’s Orthodox communities.
“As mayor, I will always respect religious freedom including the freedom of parents to do what’s best for their kids educationally,” Yang, the former presidential candidate who announced his mayoral bid early this year, told the Forward. “Thus, we shouldn’t interfere with their religious and parental choice as long as the outcomes are good.”
Yang is one of many contenders for the Democrat party nomination for mayor which will be decided in the June 22 primary election. If nominated, he will most likely win the November 2 general election for mayor, as most of New York City voters are Democrats.
If you would like to vote in the June primary, the deadline to register with the Democrat party is February 14.
