Statement by Chairman Gerard Kassar

Brooklyn, NY — “The Conservative Party could be the only surviving small party in New York under this proposed, two-percent threshold, but our principles get in the way of any celebrating. We continue to believe that Governor Cuomo’s commission lacks the constitutional authority to make law — only a duly elected legislature can do that — and we remain philosophically opposed to taxpayer funded political campaigns. This is a classic example of government engineering a crisis and then presenting an impossibly bureaucratic solution to it on the backs of taxpayers.” — Gerard Kassar
