STATEMENT FROM NEW YORK STATE CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR ON SENATE GOP JUDICIAL WIN
Brooklyn-NY…“New York State Senators are the duly elected representatives of the people of New York State, and, as such, they must have final say over gubernatorial nominees for state courts.
“Today’s judicial victory reaffirms the supremacy of the electorate over ad hoc political machinations that have become the norm in Albany under one-party Democratic rule. It is a win for New Yorkers of all political persuasion.
“The Conservative Party congratulates plaintiff Senator Anthony Palumbo, GOP Senate Leader Rob Ortt and the entire Republican State Senate Conference for defending a crucially important American concept from the temporary passions of hot-headed
ideologues. This decision is an important reminder that the people call the shots in this country through their elected representatives. Too many in Albany and Washington have forgotten that fundamental American notion.”
