I live in Beit Shemesh. IMO Lipman is a self-serving opportunist. Last year he brought in all the press and protests to Sheinfeld Beit Shemesh over nonsense in order to generate a name for himself. Now he writes a weekly column in the Temura paper where he blames Beit Shemesh Mayor Abutbul for every ill known to mankind. Abutbul is great and the city is fantastic new malls opening, shopping, services, etc. Yet Lipman is there every week complaining and claiming we need a new mayor.
