Elections can be exciting. They can add variety and new experiences to our lives. The last local council elections (2013) in Beit Shemesh certainly did this. Much of this was positive, but there were aspects that give food for thought and reassessment.
As Tammany Hall Democratic leader George Washington Plunkitt, famously said: “Me and the Republicans are enemies just one day in the year — Election Day. The rest of the time, it’s live and let live with us.”
The photos in this gallery portray the color, variety of perspectives and taste of these elections. Some of the photos invite standing back and consideration.
