Statement by New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on St. John Villa Academy Court Decision

Brooklyn-NY…“New York State Supreme Court Justice Wayne M. Ozzi got it right in ruling that the former St. John Villa Academy on Staten Island is not a proper location for housing migrants pouring into the city because of Biden Administration blundering. Kudos to Staten Island Republicans and Conservatives for leading the challenge against City plans to put a shelter there. St. John Villa Academy is an educational facility, and it should reopen as one as quickly as possible. 

“The New York State Conservative Party salutes Judge Ozzi for defending common sense, a rare commodity in New York these days, and we urge Mayor Adams to forgo any challenges to his ruling. The court got it exactly right.”
