Mr. Mik Moore
Wednesday, September 24, 2008, at 12:00 Noon, I am hosting
my show “The Advocates” on WVOX- 1460 AM, or you can listen to the program’s
live streaming at www.wvox.com. One can call
the show at 914-636-0110 to reach us on the radio. Our guest today is Mr. Mik Moore and our subject
today is: “Are the Democrats Taking the
Jewish Vote to Lightly?”
Mr. Mik Moore is the Co-Executive Director and Co-Founder,
Jewsvote.org and has fourteen years of experience working in the often
overlapping worlds of communications, politics, and the Jewish community. He is
currently on leave from Jewish Funds for Justice, where he serves as Chief
Communications Officer. Before joining JFSJ in 2005, Mik did electoral and
policy work for a variety of elected officials and non-profit organizations in New York City. Mr. Moore
serves on the board of The Jewish Week
and is board chair of the Jewish Student
Press Service. He studied at Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, spent a year in Israel
with the Zionist youth movement Young Judaea, and holds a B.A. from Vassar College
and a J.D. from Georgetown Law.
Mr. Moore will address some of these questions:
Are there states which the Jewish vote will be
Do Jewish voters question Obama’s support for Israel?
Is the McCain campaign connected to the spread of
internet rumors about Obama?
Why do most Jews vote Democratic?
Meanwhile, the mission of the “Advocates” is to bring to the
public differing views on current “public policy “issues. “Public policy,”
therefore, is what we as a nation legally and traditionally follow. Over the
years, the “public policy” of the United States has changed or has
been modified greatly. As an example, “free public education” is the public
policy of the United States.
Also, over time great struggles have ensued over the control of the direction
of “public policy” For example: free trade vs. protectionism, slavery vs.
emancipation, state’s rights vs. Federalism, and an all-volunteer armed forces
or the “draft.”
