Electoral program

City Appearance

A new Ra’anana standard in urban care and city appearance will be effective as of my nomination as mayor of Ra’anana.
The surveys we carried out indicate a low level of satisfaction with the level of city maintenance both in terms of cleanliness and in terms of infrastructure maintenance. The irony is that precisely that was the field in which Ra’anana was a pioneer quite a few years ago. We still have a lot of improvements to make.
Write in your diaries: within half a year Ra’anana will be the most well-kept and cleanest city again.

  1. New system in Ra’anana – regional service managers – will be at your service!
    I am sure you will tell me you have already heard about this program.. You may well have done as this was a plan of mine which which the mayor of Ra’anana refused to allow me to implement when I served as deputy mayor however, I will implement it as your next mayor.
    We will divide the city into six service areas. Each of you, residents of Ra’anana, will have the name and phone number of the regional service manager who will be responsible for your street. That manager will be measured according to the number of referrals by the call center , the scope of repeated referrals and according to a variety of quality service indicators and availability of the service. For example, when he sees that a resident makes a repeat request at the call center on the same issue, he will initiate a meeting with the resident to closely monitor the need for treatment. The service manager will work with the entire municipal system that provides urban care services throughout the city and will ensure the best service in the area, which will be his responsibility.
    And the good news is that in order to implement this new system of service, we will add only three new personnel positions. The rest is based on upgrading existing positions.
  2. Making the city shine, improving the service
    We will implement in Ra’anana advanced technologies for the cultivation of the city and innovative models for managing the service:
    Do not clean…shine!!! I will work to reduce the activity of the swiping Machines with the water hose (the one that bothers us all).
    We will purchase innovative, electric, non-polluting, quiet and efficient pumping machines that are currently in use in major European cities. The source: the municipal development budget
  3. Clearing more efficient pruning:
    • An innovative mobile application will serve to inform us about taking a cutting outside. This way we can improve the availability of evacuation and better handle requests for exceptional evacuation beyond the regular evacuation day.
    • The special parking places project for the cutting – in the city streets, which I initiated as deputy mayor, will be expanded. The experience proved wonderful results in the streets where the project was implemented: all the piles of the trimmings went to the designated trimming parking lots and thus the unnecessary waste of parking spaces on piles of waste was avoided and this contributed to the improvement of cleanliness in these streets.
  4. Collection within 3 hours only
    Did they cut your street trees? Did the municipality take care of the gardening? Within just 3 hours of performing pruning or urban horticulture work, the street that has been maintained by the municipality will be cleared and waste removed
  5. A new service for private gardeners
    A dedicated application will serve the private gardeners in the activity with the city appearance department. The evacuation days for the gardeners will be Sunday – Friday regardless of the evacuation days for the residents. For their benefit, I have already placed containers throughout the city that serve them every day of the week.
    The gardeners will receive personal service from representatives in the city appearance department (client portfolio managers), and will no longer have to deal with the municipal call center.
  6. We will recycle more plastic packaging
    I am happy to be the one who led the implementation of packaging recycling (the orange bins) in Ra’anana.
    Happily… the results are wonderful, you show involvement and recycle, thus protecting the environment,. and hence :
    • We will expand the use of the orange plastic recycling bins in shared buildings and recycling centers.
    • We will allow parking for unloading in front of the recycling centers scattered throughout the city to allow you better access to the public bins.
  7. Back to recycling bottles
    We will reintroduce the collection of the plastic bottles that many of you returned to throwing in the trash (following the cessation of collection by the state). From now on, the municipality will carry out the collection and deliver the bottles to the recycling companies. All the money that will be received as income from the deposit will be transferred entirely to the purchase of food stamps that will improve the municipal aid to the welfare populations in the city (everything will be distributed by the welfare department only according to the accepted criteria).
  8. Putting an end to trash cans on the sidewalks
    We will re-examine the alternatives for the location of all the trash cans that are currently “parked” on the sidewalks. The model that will be formulated will be presented to you by 04/2024.
  9. Sukkot “schach” delivered directly to the house
    From now on it will be possible to have it delivered to your home for a nominal cost of 25 NIS for delivery. The residents of Ra’anana deserve more…how did they use to say on T.V? Always… spoil, spoil, spoil…

Say “where do I vote”? Why didn’t I get a note? How does my son/daughter vote in the IDF?

Here is all the necessary information for election day in Ra’anana!

There are two options for locating the polling place:

  1. Here is a link from the Ministry of the Interior – enter the link and fill in the appropriate place your ID number as well as the date of issue. The system will return the polling place to you. https://www.gov.il/apps/moin/bocharim/
  1. My headquarters team will also be happy to answer you personally on your polling station: 054-4884-8840 send us a WhatsApp with your name and ID and we will answer you.

Question: Why didn’t I receive the note in the mail?

Answer: Most of us did not receive them. These are notes sent by the Ministry of the Interior, but they are intended for information only about the polling place, they are not necessary for voting!!!

What should we bring to the polling station?

  1. The polling stations are open from 07.00 in the morning until 22.00 at night.
  2. Identification before the polling staff is through an identity card or driver’s license.
    The note we used to receive from the Ministry of the Interior (most of us did not receive it) is not necessary for voting, it is for information only!!!

How many notes do you vote with?
You will receive two envelopes:
One for the yellow note – for direct election to mayor (Nir Crystal),
and the second for the white note – to select the list for the city council (ק Ra’ananim led by Nir Crystal).

Make sure you only take one note !!! of each kind and put them in the envelopes, otherwise your vote could be rejected.

And our children, our amazing soldiers?

They vote in the bases. After identifying themselves to the polling staff, they will receive envelopes like you but unlike us, they will receive a blank yellow note and a blank white note.
Why are they blank? Because troops from other cities will stand behind them in line and it is not possible to bring all the notes from all over the country to each base.
Therefore: they must write their choice in their handwriting.

In our case :
Nir Crystal – on the yellow note,
ק  Ra’ananim led by Nir Crystal – on the white ticket.

Do not add anything other than this text on the notes.

And most importantly – election day is a vacation. It is designed so that we all go to vote and influence our future. Because only those who vote really influence.

I invite you to elect me for mayor and a list of Ra’ananim (ק) under my leadership for the city council.

yours,

Nir Crystal and the list of Ra’ananim (ק)
