"Today, once again, the Westchester County Conservative Party overwhelmingly endorsed the incumbent Andy Spano for re-election as Westchester’s County Executive with 71 percent of the vote at a special meeting this afternoon. In addition, the Westchester Conservative Party also endorsed for District Attorney candidate, Janet DiFiore, and County Clerk candidate, Robert Morabito.
"Andy Spano has championed programs to keep Westchester residents safe. His aggressive stance on getting drunk drivers off Westchester roadways is unparalleled and he continues to demonstrate strong dedication to keeping dangerous sex offenders of the streets. He has fought at the state level for increased penalties for sex offenders, and at the local level he has worked with the courts to put forth a program to place bracelets on sex offenders so their whereabouts can be monitored. Under his leadership, Westchester County is still one of the only county municipalities in the nation to enjoy a triple-A bond rating.
"The Westchester County Conservative Party fought back a procedural motion to control the process today by an insurgent group of Republicans. It was a failed attempt to take over the party," said Conservative Chairwoman Gail Burns. "The Westchester Conservative Party stands by its decision to endorse the best and qualified candidates for elected office. Today's actions reaffirm earlier decisions made by our party."
