Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses our 60th Anniversary Reception, big November wins on the horizon, early voting dates and the need for volunteers for early voting and election day.

2022 Fall Reception

Our Fall Reception marking the Party’s 60th Anniversary was a great success. We returned to the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle; a beautiful venue nestled on the waterfront.

We were honored to have Newsmax’s White House Correspondent, John Gizzi, as our Ronald Reagan Journalism Award recipient and Larry Kudlow as our featured guest speaker.

The gathering, coming on the heels of excellent statewide and local polling, was highly energized. You could feel the momentum in the room. US Senate candidate Joe Pinion, Attorney General candidate Michael Henry and Comptroller candidate Paul Rodriquez each took a few moments to deliver remarks. Gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was a part of every conversation from the podium to the reception floor. We are just 18 days away from saving New York. We must keep this momentum moving in the right direction.

It was also very clear that Chairman Emeritus Mike Long, the Chairman for almost half of the party’s history, was on many minds, as one would expect at the 60th Anniversary event. It was a fine evening remembering Mike and telling the story of the Conservative Party’s history and his enormous role in it.

It has been an honor for me to chair the Conservative Party these past few years. I am keenly aware of the history that brought us to where we are today. It is my sincere hope that in 2022 we will write a new page for a great political party and a fine group of people who make the party what it is today.

Big November Wins on the Horizon

News coming out of Washington indicates late summer/early fall numbers that showed momentum for Conservatives and Republicans had slowed, or even stopped, have returned to levels not seen in decades.

The US Senate is once again in play for the GOP with places like Pennsylvania and Arizona showing great promise. The House always expected to move into GOP control looks like it could once again see large Republican/Conservative gains.

In New York I expect to see 9, 10 or even 11 Republican/Conservative members of Congress. Currently, that number sits at 8.

The State Senate is poised to see many GOP/Conservative gains as well. And a shocker for many is the likelihood that the Assembly Republicans will see their greatest number of wins since 1994.

As much as the strong efforts of our party and its candidates are responsible for the pending gains, much credit should also, sadly, go to the Democratic Party. Their policies and candidates who gave us out of control inflation, unsafe streets, porous borders and a foreign policy that has made the United States unable to project the influence of a great power, have led to a New York State and America clearly on a decline. Look no further than the New York Post article in which a City Hall staffer admitted the Eric Adams Administration has no idea what to do with illegal immigrants flooding into NYC.

It is my continued ask that we do not get complacent, we must work hard and get out every single vote either through Absentee Ballot, Early Voting, or on Election Day November 8th. We’re almost there!

Early Voting October 29 through November 6

Early voting as you know is in person voting. Our voters should take advantage of this nine day opportunity to cast their vote early. It helps ensure our vote is coming out in large numbers. To win in New York State we need every person who thinks the way we do, or believes the state is heading in the wrong direction, to get out and vote!

If we lose, it will be because we did not vote. Conservatives and Republicans who don’t vote do one thing—elect Democrats. The Democratic Party has such a large voter advantage, we cannot afford to leave votes on the table. Of course, if for some reason you do not vote early, make sure you make a plan for you and your family to vote on November 8th.

Early Vote and Election Day Volunteers

If you are not already committed to local Conservative Party efforts, I ask you to contact the State Conservative Party at 718-921-2158 or by E-mail at [email protected] in order for us to make you part of our final GOTV and ballot security efforts.

Of course, you will be assigned to your local community. The point simply being that we need to get the vote out and can take no chances with the integrity of our elections.

NY’s Attorney General Leticia James is the quintessential democratic candidate

Michael Goodwin’s column on Wednesday:  Lee Zeldin has real shot to defeat Kathy Hochul in modern David vs. Goliath showdown. Mr. Goodwin notes in his column that “… something important has happened on the way to Hochul’s expected coronation. More and more, voters are waking up to the fact that one-party Democratic rule in Albany has been a complete disaster.”

“Don’t let Hochul buy your vote with your own money. Teach Kat a lesson and cast your ballot for Lee Zeldin.”  Hochul’s most insulting bid to buy your vote with your own money.

The Conservative Party Releases their 2022 Legislative Ratings

The Conservative Party congratulates Senators Jordan, Lanza, O’Mara, Ortt and Tedisco and Assembly Member Manktelow on their 100% ratings.

Keeping with its tradition, the Conservative Party tracked legislation throughout the session, issued support and opposition memos on pending legislation, and determined, at an executive committee meeting, which key issues best represent the direction of the state. The legislation considered comprise a variety of issues including, but not limited to criminal justice reform, infringement on our 2nd Amendment rights, radical green programs, and pro-life issues that affect the lives of all New Yorkers. “We believe that it is necessary to keep the public informed of key votes and let the taxpayers be aware of how elected officials spend our hard-earned money. Every bill is reviewed, and then we narrow them down to 25 specific bills to give voters a fair assessment of what transpires in Albany,” said Gerard Kassar, State Chairman. “As people go through the bills used this year it shows New Yorkers how out of touch the Democratic leaders of legislature are with the average citizen; many are costly, sometimes unwarranted, and a few will show how they try to help New Yorkers,” said Kassar. The full release and the ratings can be viewed here.

Kathy Hochul says Joe Biden won’t ‘take ownership’ of NYC migrant crisis.  Governor, please explain to all New Yorkers how this is any different from the fact that you do not “take ownership” of the crime in our streets due to your refusal to bring the Legislature back to address the criminal justice “reforms” that have led to a surge in crime through a revolving door system that allows criminals to roam as they please.

The problem with polls and conservative voters.

Joe Biden just interfered in Hunter’s prosecution on national TV

Fox News has a column on Biden’s lies, outright fabrications repeatedly dismissed, downplayed and softened by media; Biden’s inability to stick to the actual facts are disturbing but this one is outright frightening: Biden wrongly says late son Beau ‘lost his life in Iraq’.  Beau died of brain cancer in May of 2015 and had returned from Iraq in September of 2008. “In my view, I can’t prove it yet, he came back with stage 4 glioblastoma. Eighteen months he lived, knowing he was going to die,” said Biden. The loss of a child, at any age, (Naomi, his daughter was 1 when they died in an automobile crash) is tragic and my heart breaks for his losses; but he is the leader of the free world and these factual errors make him appear weak and if our leader is weak, so is our nation.

Hochul’s shamelessness only grows as Election Day approaches, so vote Zeldin!

If she is as popular as the media would have you believe, why are Vulnerable New York Dems keep(ing) their distance from Gov. Hochul ahead of Election Day.

NY Gov. Kathy Hochul pictured with fundraiser Maher Abdelqader, who shared Holocaust denial content.

Pay-to-play allegations not stopping Hochul from raising money at a record pace. “Hollywood types. Real estate kingpins. Health care leaders and registered lobbyists. All of them and more were among the hundreds of people contributing at least $10,000 to her campaign, according to a campaign filing released Friday.”

Hochul hunts for marijuana DWI test as NY opens cannabis shops. Now, Governor? You’ve known for how long that the lack of a marijuana DWI test is a problem (certainly as the state’s CEO you should have), yet now is when you are looking for a reliable test?  Are you too busy fundraising? Or is it that none of your “big donors” have a approached you to invest in marijuana testing companies?

Ex-Rep. Peter King rips Hochul on bail reform, says she’s in ‘surrender’ mode

NYC feels unsafe ‘for the first time in my life,’ ex-Gov. Paterson says.

No, Gov. Hochul: Tommy Bailey’s death and those of countless others are your fault. As the editorial points out, she even had the gall to suggest in August that we wait to “see whether or not the system can start functioning the way we intended” as she took any changes off the table until she gets elected — holding the lives of the public she allegedly serves hostage to her own political ambitions.

NYC shoplifter with 153 arrests booked again after fleecing three Rite Aids. The fact that this person has 153 arrests and is still out on the streets is mindboggling. What this has cost the consumer – add in the cost of all the looting and destroying property – is also mindboggling. These costs just add to the inflation that New Yorkers and all of Americans are paying.

Gov. Kathy Hochul has promoted a major advocate of the state’s controversial bail-reform laws to become one of her top legal advisers — even as she claims to have vigorously worked to change the lax rules.  Governor Hochul has no intention of changing the controversial bail-reform laws, even more reason to vote her OUT! It is up the voters who care about their safety to elect Lee Zeldin and Save Our State.

Hochul turns deaf ear to question of helping NYC handle migrant crisis.

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses Columbus Day, the ballot propositions, Biden visits the Mid-Hudson region and our 60th Anniversary Celebration on October 18, 2022

Columbus Day Weekend

 Columbus Day is an important part of the Italian American culture here in America. It was designated to celebrate the United States of America and our commitment to growing as a nation and welcoming in hard working immigrants in search of contributing to our society and achieving the American dream.

Between 1880 and 1924, more than four million Italians immigrated to America and got right to work providing labor in factories and mines. They built roads, tunnels, homes, skyscrapers and dams. They started small businesses, many of which still thrive today.

Christopher Columbus Day is not an excuse to honor just one man, but an opportunity to celebrate a journey that led to over five hundred years of immigration from all over the world. America provides opportunity unlike anywhere else. We welcome with open arms those who wish to come to our great country the right way, work hard, and contribute to American society in search of a better life for their families.

The short sighted attempt by the woke liberal left to cancel Columbus Day is wrong. Those who truly have no understanding of what we are celebrating continue their shortsighted efforts to cancel what Christopher Columbus accomplished without today’s technology. I remain committed to celebrating Columbus Day every second Monday of October and celebrating all the contributions Italian Americans have made, and continue to make, to the greatest country on earth—The United States of America.


The Conservative Party organizations in the counties of the City of New York sent the below press release out on 10/5/22.

The Conservative Party urges voters to support its nominees by voting for its candidates on Column “C” and to reject all four ballot propositions by voting “NO” on each question.

The Conservative Party of New York State opposes Proposition One. This statewide referendum, known as the Environmental Bond Act of 2022, asks New York voters to authorize new state debt of $4.2 billion through the sale of bonds for certain capital projects relating to the environment.

“New Yorkers do not need another $4.2 billion in public debt, together with its resulting debt service, due to actions by the Federal Reserve, will be issued at the highest interest rates New Yorkers have seen in decades,” said New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar. “We fear New York State’s reputation for unchecked spending will result in the possibility of the state legislature spending the entirety of the $4.2 billion on projects that should be paid with existing authorized debt, new federal sources, and pay as you go where possible.”

The Conservative Party organizations in the counties of the City of New York additionally oppose Propositions Two, Three, and Four. These citywide referendums propose meritless statements of value, divisive racial equity plans, and the adoption of dubious cost of living metrics. They are contrived proposals based upon dishonest claims peddled by the professional grievance industry. Not only are they a waste of taxpayer money, but they are each in direct conflict with the values of personal achievement, equality of opportunity, and free enterprise, all of which made New York a once-great city.

“Once again, the liberal government officials of the City of New York have missed the mark,” said Kings County Chairwoman Frances T. Vella-Marrone. “Instead of focusing on the real problems facing the City such as increased crime, rise in the cost of living and a broken education system, they are presenting the voters with proposals that will do nothing to improve the lives of New Yorkers but rather encourage division and waste the taxpayers money.”

“With the current state of our city, the last thing we need to do is pass these propositions,” said Bronx County Chairman Patrick McManus. “We are ALL New Yorkers and any measure put forth should serve to unite us rather than divide us!”

“With rising crime and a declining quality of life, New Yorkers do not need foolish proposals for fabricated problems,” said Richmond County Chairman David Mario Curcio. “It is precisely these types of divisive and destructive policies that motivated our county organization to endorse the municipal independence of Staten Island from the City of New York last year. Just say no.”

Election Day is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2022, preceded by nine scheduled days of early voting. The Conservative Party encourages voters to VOTE COLUMN “C” for candidates and to VOTE “NO” on all four ballot proposal questions which will appear on the reverse side of the ballot.

President Biden in the Mid-Hudson

 President Biden visited the Mid-Hudson to tout all he has done to help IBM. In reality, he found something to take credit for on his way to two fundraisers, one held in New Jersey and the other in New York City. Both fundraisers were in support for Democratic House and Senate candidates who see no cause for concern with inflation and crime, both of which are crippling New Yorker’s.

If he really wanted to help Democrats, he wouldn’t use a governmental trip as a cover to attend two high priced fundraisers. He would instead work to secure the Southern Border and get inflation under control. More than 17,000 illegal immigrants have been bussed to New York City alone since the summer, causing Eric Adams to declare a State of Emergency. The irony and hypocrisy from the Mayor are astounding. In August, the Del Rio Sector alone recorded more than 50,000 apprehensions. Overall, Texas has more than 100,000 border crossings a month. What New York City and Mayor Adams are experiencing is a drop in the bucket compared to what is happening in Texas. Mayor Adams is failing the City of New York by not calling on the Biden Administration to secure the border.

60TH Anniversary Reception

 We are less than two weeks away from our 60th Anniversary Reception featuring keynote speaker, Larry Kudlow, and our guest of honor, John Gizzi. I look forward to seeing everyone in New Rochelle on October 18th as we gather to celebrate our honorees and rally to get out our vote and elect Lee Zeldin this November.

Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Federal Court Gun Law Ruling

Contact: Bill O’Reilly, 212-396-9117
[email protected]
October 6, 2022

Brooklyn, NY – “U.S. District Court Judge Glenn Suddaby is correct in blocking several enforcement provisions in New York’s hastily passed new gun laws. The Constitution is clear on the Second Amendment, and efforts by New York Democrats to require social media background checks for gun purchasers, among other things, violate both First and Second Amendment rights. We commend Justice Suddaby for properly flagging very real Constitutional concerns in New York’s new laws.”

Why victims and their families, like me, have been betrayed by Kathy Hochul’s failure to fix bail reform

Dem Albany DA blasts Hochul, NY liberals over ‘no action’ with deadly shootings. What most people don’t remember about DA David Soares is that when he was first elected in November 2004 on the Democratic and Working Families Party lines, with the strong help of George Soros, who is noted for his penchant for “social justice” one would never expect him to blast his own party members. For David Soares to come out this strong, you know the criminal justice system, as it is under Kathy Hochul, Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Carl Heastie, Michael Gianaris et al, does not have the best interest of New Yorkers who pay the price for the revolving door that allows criminals to walk out without any repercussions.


Who needs a Legislature when one judge decides to legalize polygamy? ‘Time Has Arrived’ to Legalize Polygamy, Writes New York Judge. A trial court Judge Karen May Bacdayan, essentially gave New York’s blessing to polyamorous unions in her September decision, declaring that “ … the problem with [previous same-sex marriage rulings] is that they recognize only two-person relationships.” And to add insult to injury, this judge isn’t even elected!
