White Plains, New York — For the third time in under two months, it has been confirmed that Andrew Spano will appear on the Conservative ballot line as the party’s official candidates for County Executive.
Today, Judge Colabella ruled that the Westchester County Conservative Party's nominating convention was conducted legally and in accordance with New York State Election Law and the party’s nominating rules. The Honorable Judge Colabella also confirmed that the proxies during the nomination process were legally obtained and executed.
“As I have maintained from the start, the convention was held in accordance with the law and our voted proxies are valid,” reiterated Gail Burns, Chairwoman of the Westchester County Conservative Committee. “Today, a judge reaffirmed what I have known to be true throughout this entire process.”
“There will always be a handful of party members who may not agree with every candidate on the Conservative Party slate,” continued Burns. “But to initiate a court action in an effort to overturn a legal nominating convention is absurd.”
“While unfortunate that our party’s nomination process was dragged through the courts, I am pleased that these ridiculous accusations have been put to rest once and for all,” said Burns.
“The Westchester County Conservative Committee has been vindicated. After all of this nonsense, we are now even more committed to guaranteeing victory for our slate,” continued Burns. "In response to this decision I call on every town and city leader to unite behind the endorsed candidates." concluded Burns.
