Welcome to Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap-Up for Oct. 18, 2019


The 2019 Conservative Party of New York fall reception will take place on Oct. 24 and feature a keynote speech from Jeanette Nuñez, the Lt. Governor of Florida. It will also feature a celebration of the 25th anniversary of New York Governor George Pataki’s historic electoral victory.

“Jeanette M. Nuñez was born and raised in Miami, Florida. She was elected as Florida’s First Hispanic Female Lieutenant Governor of Florida in 2018. She previously served as a State Representative of the Florida House of Representatives from 2010 to 2018 and was named Speaker Pro Tempore from 2016 to 2018,” the keynote speaker’s bio reads.

Nuñez is a rising star in the Republican Party, serving under Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida. Gov. DeSantis is a favorite of President Donald Trump, and he has risen to become one of the most conservative heads of state in the entire nation following his electoral victory last year.

“If he was doing a lousy job, I probably wouldn’t have shown up today. But he is doing one of the best jobs in the whole country — Ron DeSantis,” President Trump said during a rally earlier this month.

The event will also honor former Governor George E. Pataki, who was the last Republican elected to lead the state of New York. He defeated Mario Cuomo, the father of the current New York Governor, and served three terms in office from 1995-2006.

Pataki’s valiant leadership helped New York get through the attacks of 9/11, as he and America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani set an example for strength in the face of tremendous national adversity. He will be honored during the event.

Tickets are still on sale. The event takes place on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel New York Ballroom on the 3rd floor. The address is 811 7th Avenue (between 52nd & 53rd Streets), New York, NY 10019. Please R.S.V.P. as soon as possible. For additional information, you may call 718-921-2158.

On Proposal 1, the Conservative Party believes that each portion of this proposed amendment should be a separate proposal. It should be noted that in the past, the ranking system was used in NYC School Board elections which created confusion and lent itself to fraud, therefore a NO vote is strongly recommended.

On Proposal 2, the Conservative Party is opposed to the CCRB and believes that each of these proposed changes to the Civilian Complaint Review Board only further empowers it, therefore a NO vote is recommended.

On Proposal 3, the Conservative Party believes that some of these proposals contained in this initiative have merit and should be adopted, however, it also includes that the citywide director of the Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise program report directly to the Mayor and be supported by a mayoral office of M/WBE’s and therefore we recommend a NO vote on this proposal.

On Proposal 4, the Conservative Party supports the idea of a “rainy-day fund,” however, to establish a minimum budget for the office of Public Advocate and Borough President eliminates the need to find ways to streamline and cut expenses, we therefore recommend a NO vote on this proposal.

On Proposal 5, the Conservative Party supports government transparency and therefore recommends a YES vote on this proposal.

For more information on the proposals, visit the primer on our official website. Early voting begins next week on Oct. 26 and goes until Nov. 3, and you can get more information on how to do that at this link.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo is waging war on influential third parties in the state of New York, making an appointment to his nine-person panel that is reforming state campaign laws that is a long-time opponent of Fusion Voting.

Fusion Voting allows Republican and Democratic candidates to appear as third-party candidates in certain situations. This keeps the major parties honest and more accountable to their bases. Cuomo appointed Jay Jacobs, who serves as chairman for the Nassau County and state Democratic parties, on the new bureaucratic board.

It is widely believed that Jacobs, who has waged war against Fusion Voting for years, is going to serve as Cuomo’s henchman to do the hit on third parties after Cuomo was angered by the left-wing Working Families Party endorsing his primary opponent Cynthia Nixon in last year’s election.

“It looks pretty obvious to me what’s going on here,” said New York State Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar in a press release.

“Governor Cuomo is furious at the Working Families Party for endorsing Cynthia Nixon instead of him for governor in 2018, so his legislative mechanics cooked up a way to let his handpicked Democratic Chairman put a shiv between the third and fourth ribs of the WFP. Thankfully, though, the plot is unraveling as members of the public and news media are catching onto what they’re up to,” Kassar added.

Cuomo, of course, is denying that he is conspiring to consolidate power with his new commission.

“Yeah, I know — and people think there’s still a Santa Claus, and people believe in the Easter bunny,” he said when he was questioned about his motives during a September radio interview.

The Conservative Party, Working Families Party, and Republican Party are filing lawsuits in an attempt to prevent Cuomo’s attacks on Fusion Voting with his bureaucrat coup attempt.

“New York’s third parties, whether they be progressive or conservative, foster crucially important debate in New York and serve as incubators of ideas,” Chairman Kassar said. “We should be promoting as much free speech and political diversity in New York as possible, not working cynically to repress it. What Governor Cuomo and Chairman Jacobs are saying simply doesn’t pass the laugh test. They need to come clean about what they’re up to.”
