It has been my honor to serve as Chairman of the New York State Conservative Party for the past 10 months. Filling the shoes of Mike Long is certainly no easy task, but I take your trust in me to carry out these duties seriously. We have taken the steps necessary to continue growing the party and making sure our message is delivered to voters throughout New York State.
We have enhanced our social media operation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. By doing so, we have added over 1,000 followers in the calendar year 2019. In today’s information consuming world, it is imperative we remain relevant on platforms that are being used to distribute information. However, unlike some fake news media, our goal is to make sure we are providing accurate news, information and updates!
We have been proactive in our attempt to reach more young people and different ethnic groups. We held very successful forums with 3 conservative minded political commentators in Manhattan and Peekskill this summer, while working with leaders in the Asian community to deliver our message to many thousands of New Yorkers using the popular texting service, We Chat.
I promised I would take the show on the road, and we have done just that. Since being elected, I have visited nearly 30 counties across our great state. We have held press conferences on the Green Light Law in Syracuse, hydrofracking in Binghamton, driver’s licenses in Buffalo, and Sanctuary Cities in Westchester. As we enter the new year, I look forward to holdings more events throughout New York State.
Finally, we filed a lawsuit in the state Supreme Court to preserve our fusion voting rights. Governor Cuomo, in an attempt to get back at political rivals, sought to strip New Yorker’s of their constitutional right to vote for candidates on third party lines. However, he vastly underestimated the fight in the Conservative Party, and we took quick action to see to it that he, and his non-elected commission, never strip New Yorker’s of their choice at the ballot box.
House Democrats Officially reject the Will of The People
In their last-ditch effort to stop the President from winning re-election in 2020, the U.S. House of Representatives Democrats voted on and passed two Articles of Impeachment Wednesday in a near partisan vote. Only two Democrats voted against both articles: Rep. Collin Peterson (MN), and Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ) who went a step further in rejecting the impeachment scam when he left the Democratic party and enrolled as a Republican.
Hours after celebrating their vote to impeach the President, Speaker Pelosi continued the games when she was non-committal to sending the Articles of Impeachment to the Republican-held Senate. Joining in on the efforts of Speaker Pelosi to slow down the Senates intention to work fast dismissing the Articles of Impeachment, was New York’s own, Senator Charles Schumer.
“We remain at an impasse, because my friend, the Democratic leader, continues to demand a new and different set of rules for President Trump,” McConnell said Thursday. “He wants to break from the unanimous bipartisan precedent and force an all our nothing approach.”
As Democrats continue this nearly four-year charade to remove a dually elected President from office, they ignore the job they were sent to Washington D.C. to do on behalf of the people. I hope you will all join me in calling Congress to get back to work!
We are just over a month away from our 53rd annual CCPAC meeting in Latham, NY. We are very excited to welcome an impressive panel of speakers including: John Brabender, Consultant to the Vice President, John McLaughlin, pollster to the President, Rep. Elise Stefanik, Morgan Zegers, founder of Young Americans Against Socialism, along with many other great guests.
The annual meeting is a great time to network with like-minded, common sense, Conservative thinkers. Last year we heard from many attendees how much they enjoyed the two-day event and we plan on making this a memorable conference with many distinguished guests.

From all of us at the Conservative Party, we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a joyous New Year!
