Brooklyn, NY – “As a plaintiff in this case, and as Chairman of the New York State Conservative Party, I congratulate the New York State Supreme Court on today’s wise decision. Voting in this country is a right logically reserved for citizens.

“This decision puts a check on a radical New York City Council that had hoped to establish a precedent for non-citizen voting across New York State. Such an action would have undermined the power of citizens to elect representatives of their choosing.

“In its decision, the Court applied common sense, something New York progressive Democrats have long forgotten how to use. This is a major victory for New York voters of all parties. It’s a victory for reason over a woke ideology that is damaging our state.”
