Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap Up 3/29/24

The Holiest of Times

Spring has arrived, and with spring comes the Easter season. The holidays of Easter, Passover, and Ramadan converge in this joyous and holy time of year. No matter what our faith, this holiday season is a time for relatives and friends to share good feelings and warm wishes. Our modern world can be very cold and complex. That is why when we open our hearts, we remake the world in a small but important way.

Spring is also a political season. Volunteers have been going door-to-door petitioning for candidates running for local, state, and national offices. Our nation’s democracy only thrives when individual citizens put in the effort to support candidates who reflect their views. Without the hard work of these activists, our nation would not be the great land that it is. 

The Conservative Party believes in the importance of the individual. Whether one is native born or a recent immigrant to our shores, each person has the right to express his or her opinions on the issues of the day. Our party believes in the importance of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of religion. These freedoms are the bedrock of our democracy. We recognize the importance of freedom of religion especially during these weeks of piety and celebration. No matter what one’s creed, each American recognizes the importance of worship. It is why the Pilgrims came to America in the 1600s. It is the reason many new immigrants come here today.

The American Dream lives in the hearts of every New Yorker. Although many members of the Democrat supermajority in Albany show little respect for basic American beliefs, the members of our Conservative Party, and the majority of the citizens of New York, from Suffolk County to Chautauqua County, still believe in honesty, thrift, and patriotism. I know that you do too.

I wish you a safe and Happy Easter, Passover, and Ramadan. I urge you to keep a sharp eye on all that is taking place in our state and our nation. Remember to vote in November for a strong, confident, conservative New York!
