CHAIRMAN’S STATEMENT ON 2022 ELECTION SUCCESSES
The Conservative Party of Richmond County enjoyed substantial electoral successes this year, garnering vote totals for its nominees that significantly exceeded the party’s active registered membership. With all Conservative Party candidates also running as nominees of the Republican Party this year, the united efforts of both parties proved to be highly formidable in assuring the election victories.
“The Conservative Party of Richmond County is proud to have played a key role in the election of Sam Pirozzolo to the State Assembly and Mary Kavanagh to the Civil Court,” said Chairman David Mario Curcio. “We also contributed to Judge Brendan Lantry receiving the most votes for Justice of the State Supreme Court in his election. Congratulations to each of them and to Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, Senator Andrew Lanza, Assemblyman Michael Reilly, and Assemblyman Michael Tannousis on their re-elections, all with Conservative Party support.”
Victorious candidates stated the following earlier this year when accepting their Conservative Party nominations:
“I thank the Conservative Party for its continued support as I stand up against the failed Biden-Pelosi policies that have given us hyper-inflation, made us less safe and given government bureaucrats more control of our lives,” said Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, who will be part of a majority conference with her decisive re-election victory.
“I look forward to working with the members of the Conservative Party in the fight to defend individual liberty and restore economic opportunities for all,” said Senator Andrew J. Lanza, who recently scored a perfect one-hundred percent rating from the State Conservative Party for voting consistency with the party platform in this year’s legislative session.
“I will continue to be a staunch advocate for the restoration of public safety and a defender of our individual freedoms,” said Assemblyman Michael Reilly, who won his contest unopposed.
“I will continue to fight for conservative values and common sense policies in Albany at a time when a radical progressive agenda continues to plague our state,” said Assemblyman Michael Tannousis, who won his contest unopposed.
“I appreciate the confidence the Conservative Party has put in me to be the standard bearer of conservative values,” said Assemblyman-Elect Sam T. Pirozzolo, who scored a decisive victory in a district that had been held by democrats for decades. “I won’t let the party down and I won’t let the good people of the 63rd district down.”
“It has never been more important to have sensible, fair-minded jurists to preside over the cases pending in our courts,” said Judge Brendan T. Lantry, whose vote total on the Conservative Party line as its exclusive candidate for State Supreme Court provided him with the largest vote total among the three candidates running uncontested. “I’m humbled and thankful to the Conservative Party for their endorsement and support.”
“I thank the Conservative Party for their faith in my ability to uphold the sacred laws of our State and to treat all parties that come before me with dignity and respect,” said Judge-Elect Mary Alice Kavanagh, who dominated her contest for the Civil Court with a victory of nearly thirty percentage points.
The Conservative Party of Richmond County also commends Joseph Tirone, candidate for State Senate, for making the contest in his district the closest it has been in many years. The party also remains extremely proud of the competitive efforts made by our statewide candidates: Congressman Lee Zeldin, Alison Esposito, Michael Henry, Paul Rodriguez, and Joe Pinion. The more than three hundred thousand votes cast on the Conservative line in the gubernatorial contest was the most since 1998 and it assures that the Conservative Party will remain on Column C for the next two years as one of the four political parties with automatic ballot access in New York.
