2023 Election Statement by New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar

Brooklyn-NY…“Good candidates running on solid conservative positions won key victories Tuesday, including on Long Island where Suffolk County Executive-elect Ed Romaine recaptured an office that’s been held by Democrats for years. Republicans and Conservatives have done so well on Long Island in recent elections that hardly an elected Democrat remains on the island.

“The Conservative Party line also provided the margin of victory in a stunning Bronx City Council win by first-time candidate Kristy Marmorato. Councilwoman-elect Marmorato will be the first Republican office holder from the Bronx in 19 years. Conservative-Party-endorsed Sue Serino will be the next Dutchess County Executive; Carmella Mantello will be the first female mayor of Troy; Ryan McMahon won a huge re-election victory in Onondaga, and Lindsay Bratek-Lorigo was victorious in her race for Erie County legislator. The Conservative Party had many other county and local wins, and we are enormously grateful for the hard work of our candidates and leaders.

“The Conservative Party is buoyed by Tuesday’s results. There is much to be proud of, and even more to be done heading into the all-important 2024 elections.”
