This past week both the New York State Conservative and Republican parties held conventions and I am proud to announce we have a unified slate of candidates going into November 2022.
The two parties are unified behind a ticket led by Lee Zeldin and his pick for Lt. Governor, former NYPD Deputy Inspector Alison Esposito, United States Senate candidate Joe Pinion, New York State Attorney General candidate Michael Henry and finally New York State Comptroller candidate Paul Rodriguez.
In many ways 2022 is do or die for New York State. Year after year you hear about this election being the most “important.” Well, we have hit critical mass in New York State and we cannot afford the trajectory our leaders have us on. Our streets aren’t becoming less safe, they are less safe. Our pockets aren’t going to hurt, they are hurting. Time for a change is here, time to try something new is here.
Please visit our facebook page to see the acceptance speeches from our slate of candidates.
The Democratic Party wanted our petition related to overturning the grossly unfair gerrymander of the Congress and State legislature to be dismissed this past week when our hearing began before the State Supreme Court in Steuben County. We wanted a full hearing on our claims with discovery ordered to accompany all written arguments and responses. We got what we wanted. The Democratic representative did not.
The Judge is committed to dealing with the case in an expeditious manner. I am happy with the progress and will continue to keep you informed.
State of The Union
The Conservative Party was pleased to see a bipartisan spirit of cooperation Tuesday over Russia’s vicious and illegal invasion of democratic Ukraine. We urge President Biden and Congress to redouble U.S. efforts to cripple Russia’s already faltering economy and to provide brave Ukraine with the lethal weaponry needed to defend itself.
We were anything but pleased, though, with President Biden’s domestic agenda that subscribes to the failed and magical liberal philosophy that the more government spends the more it saves. That’s how you drive an economy into the ground.
What’s needed is a long-term plan to stop the government overspending driving the most rapid inflation growth in 40 years. Americans once reached for the moon. Now, they reach ever more deeply into their pockets just to pay the interest on U.S. debt. That’s not a sustainable practice, and, until proper fiscal stewardship enters Washington’s vernacular, our woes at the supermarket and gas pump will go on.
