Westchester County Conservative Party_logo Yonkers, NY and White Plains, NY – One would think the call to enter battle at Gallipoli was to be the certain death of many a loyalist, as well as opponents to the present Yonkers Conservative Committee which was under siege. There were challenges from without, but the challenges from within divided the political house. Each side had huffed and puffed. Each side had drawn a line in the sand. Chairman John Folkerts stood at one side of the divide, Vincenza Restiano stood at the ready to take his chairmanship. In politics the game is played by numbers. Those numbers consist of votes. Those votes are calculated by weight. The weight is determined by the last gubernatorial race which in this situation refers to the time John Faso ran for New York State Governor.



Each side espoused they had the numbers to win the day. When the reorganization was conducted at the Polish Community Center on the morning of October 21, 2010, the tabulations had the Folkerts contingent garner 1243 votes, while the Restiano backers mustered  309 votes.

John Folkerts maintained the chairman position over challenger Vincenza Restiano. Vincent Spano won the position of 1st vice chairman over Hugh Fox, Jr. Mike Eifler earned the position of 2nd vice chair over Richard  Falcone. Gregory DeSousa trounced Richard Halevy for treasurer. Patrick Brady succeeded  winning the position of recording secretary over Thomas Byrne. Lenny N. Spano won the position of corresponding secretary over Arthur Galvine, Jr.  And Edward Doyle Sr. won the position of executive assistant chairman over Thomas Ahern.

Congratulations were exchanged among some as other licked their wounds. Lunch beckoned to allow for a breather before the Hon. Robert M. DelBella would ascertain the conduct of the disparate factions in deciding who would rule the roost.

The Hon. Robert M. DelBella was heard say, “Fighting is not good," as he ushered  Guy Parisi, Esq., representing the Hugh Fox, Jr., faction for the Westchester County Conservative Committee Chair, and A. Joshua Ehrlich, Esq., representing incumbent Chair Gail Burns. 

The Hon. DiBella infused a confident, stern, albeit respectful tone among contestants who had reached the brink of civility and needed to be gently coaxed to an environment conducive to discussion, so as to gravitate each toward accommodation of the other. The Hon. Judge DelBella armed  each respective counsel with the responsibility to cajole an amenable working relationship among the dueling forces. Mssrs. Ehrlich and Parisi each succumbed to their dutiful roles demanded of them. They each in turn coaxed their respective side to accept Justice DelBella’s demand to start at the beginning, that is, to design a new petition form that would supplant all previously Westchester County Board of Elections signed and validated petitions. The papers are to be presented to the Honorable DelBella on October 26th. and on December 1, 2010 the newly designated, signed petitions will be tabulated and advised the court. The court’s decision and ruling will be final.

The Hon. Robert M. DiBella won the battle today. His balanced perspective, comprehension of law, and ability to judge human behavior were faultlessly synchronized. His words, train of thought, and every physical stance expressed his determination and expectant result. He drove the bargain home. He won the day but left a residue of win among the protagonists that will last them each throughout their task. The Hon. DelBella exacted a sense of civility and respect one does not often witness to be  loftiest role the courts may play.

  1. This guy was boxed while driving a city car which he damaged-now he has a patronage job at the Hudson River Museum-what a disgrace.

  2. you might want to consider what scarsdale does..
    they have a non partisan citizens committee that
    runs only the most qualified people for office on
    a non party ticket with no opposition…of course you
    would have to change the charter for that to happen..fat chance

  3. Everyone,
    My question is this. What do the people of Yonkers do next? Except for Joan G on our council, we do not seem to have 1 other person fighting for OUR needs as a city/community. People like Lesnick & Ammicone love splitting the people and conquering the small, BullSheet issues and then parading them around like they actually did something. As a case study, Yonkers has to be one of the most disfuntional places OF Government in the tri-state area/NYS. Im sure there are other “prize pigs” like Yonkers, but this place takes the Ribbon for 1st place horror show to live in, be raised from, and watch as it litterally deteriorates into Nothing before our eyes.
    Where is Yonkers heading? 1yr? 3 yrs? 5yrs? 10, 20,30.
    If anyone can come up with a non-political way to get somehwere better, I’d listen.
    Yonkers doesn’t Person that can run this place that we dont already know of. There are NO QULAIFIED CANDIDATES! Tell me 1 that wouldn’t take the position, rape the city yet again, and then walk all over US grandstanding like he/she was a KING.
    Inside the democracy of America, lay a city with people who used to be proud of the place they lives, saw the potential, and hope for the future. It has been STOLEN FROM US WHEREBY PUTTING US ON A ROAD TO BANKRUPTCY, LIKE OUR OWN MAYOR.
    Yonkers, What is the next step???

  4. The name of this party should be changed to the “Jobs for Unemployable Hacks Party.” As far as Restiano and Foxy are concerned, they should be grateful they have pensions and go away.
    BTW any truth to the rumor that Restiano use to give lapdances at “city haul”???

  5. that was the price that george pataki gladly paid
    to have the pro life conservative party line even
    though pataki was pro choice…demonstrating once
    again that these minor parties are not ideology
    driven..they are driven by what they and they family
    and friends can get from the candidates they endorse
    in return for that endorsement

  6. Shot their last load-I dont think so but more importantly at least they have loads to shot-Oh Sammy no embarrassment in being impotent, a good urologist should be able to help you

  7. The Conservative Party issue will be decided on December 1st. The Spano/Burns run will be over by 8:00 on that day. They shot there “THEIR” last load when they endorsed Andy Spano over Rob Astorino.
    The winning faction will decide the leaders in each of the various Towns. Going forward no candidate will every “EVEN” get the endorsement of the County Conservative Commitee “COMMITTEE” unless the “THEY” agree with the majority of the principles of the organization. All leaders will have input into the process, this will not be a tyranny where on puppet does the bidding of a has been, broken down political family.
    This guy is not only illiterate but he, too, is another sore winner. Get over it already – Astorino beat Andy Spano!

  8. none of these minor parties should be allowed to
    cross endorse either the republican or democrat party
    candidates….it leads to political extortion …just
    look at the chairman of the westchester independence
    party currently on the payroll of the state senate
    democrats whoever heard of one party chairman in the
    employ of another party….and what was the quid pro
    quo for that job which by the way pays 55,000 a year
    minor parties have a right to exist and they can run
    their own candidates but they cannot be allowed
    to hold the major party’s hostage for jobs, ideology
    or money…only a5 states allow cross endorsements and
    you would think that new york state would be smart enough to prohibit them…there would be no fighting
    over leadership in these minor parties if the stakes
    were taken away…mike long should be put out of business along with the local leaders who have been
    given power far beyond the numbers registered in their
    parties simply because candidates believe they need
    their lines to get elected

  9. My name is LORRAINE LOPEZ. I have fucked you for upwards of 1MILLION dollars. And you care about this? some asshole party?
    Get a grip.
    JAIL 4 Amicone

  10. Is this the same Edward Doyle, Sr. who was Pres. of Local 456? If so, what the hell is a union guy doing in the Conservative, right to work, Pty.? Just goes to prove how corrupt these people are. Just another bunch of parasites trying to get into the beleaguered taxpayers pockets. Nothing more than a pack of common thieves.

  11. if there is not a report in the Journal News about the police activity at Belle Havanna tonight: i’ll file a lawsuit with the JN in addition to the CJD 50 million dollar lawsuit they have failed to report.
    Is the Journal News is a fraud?
    well there’s a question if i ever saw one…
    If Lesnick doesn’t act on the recent Zerhka case against Amcione: there should be a lawsuit. a class action lawsuit against Amicone using taxpayer dollars to engage the city counsel lawyers on his behalf. Huge mistake. this SOB used the taxpayers to defend something many of us knew was wrong form the start.
    If Lesnick doesn’t act on the allegations of McDow’s parking issue: there will also be a lawsuit.
    Ball in court Lesnick.
    you’re the city council president and i expect you to respond appropriately.
    (my expectations haven’t been met yet)
    Chuck: while your brain may be ladled with SFC—Amicone needs to be removed from office and if you don’t act we will.
    Chuck: i know i haven’t responded to your many emails about fund raisers: but i assure you I’m going to cook your goose for this holiday season. Let me know how you like it done.
    i suspect its well done…
    best for the holidays.
    🙂

  12. Hey Spanos. Good job wasting time on a blog that no one reads and is written by the dumbest fuckin idiot walking the face oof the earth. You will get spanked come election time ;D. Blogs don’t win elections, work wins elections. That is something a G.E.D. doesn’t teach you.

  13. Hey Fat boy Sam – Just assume the position while Branca spanks you one more time as always! You carry nothing in portchester. oh forgot big trustee now hahahahahahahahahaha thats pretty funny that you say the spanos are hasbeens! you are a neverwas. aYou are a fat slob that cant count, stop with your spin you and asstorino are done. Get over it.
    by the way, you have been keeping this meeting from happening not the spanos or gail or folkerts or anyone else. what are you afraid of?? have the meeting!! Just like in Yonkers, you guys had the votes but you couldnt mustar 302 votes hahahahhahahha –
    you have reached the highest office that you ever will serve (one step above a dog catcher) at your ripe old age that is pretty pathetic.
    hope the view is good from the cheap seats sam because that is where you will be sitting once again.

  14. Hughie Fox & “Foreclosure” Rustiano fail miserably at a coup, yet posters still blame the Spano Family. Real nice.
    To the Haters, I would encourage you to make nice with the Spano’s. You’ll sleep better at night. Heck, Rustiano might meet some of her financial obligations if she bought a lawn mower, rake & snow shovel and made nice in Colonial Heights. Ha ha ha!!!
    Winners are winners. Losers are losers. The cycle continues.

  15. In reply to Sassy……its kind like Dopey Mike getting the Working Party(Beyond Liberal)and Conservative endorsement. You can’t make this stuff up!

  16. ” Going forward no candidate will every get the endorsement of the County Conservative Commitee unless the agree with the majority of the principles of the organization.”
    Are you kidding?
    Since when? The conservatives wouldn’t have anybody to endorse unless they ignored their platform. And that would include the RINO’s like Astorino.
    And use the spell check. Jeez…

  17. All the talk is cheap. The meeting will finally end the agrument. I think all the Conservatives in Cortlandt,Peekskill,Ossining & Harrison should find out that their leaders are endorsing left wing liberals at the County level.
    Once some of the district leaders from Yonkers are proven to live outside the County then they will realize it really wasn’t worth the trouble to keep Gail & the Spanos in power. These district leaders can explain it to judge who here’s the case.

  18. This is a typical BS ploy of the Spano machine. Call a make believe meeting that means nothing. The head of the party will be decided in a month and that is who will give out the Wilson Pakulas.
    Sorry Nick and Gail but the sand is a=out of the hour glass!

  19. There is no such a thing as the conservative party. They don’t run candidates in the elections so they don’t exist. And the list of participants is a who’s who of city haulers in one form or anoter.

  20. The Conservative Party issue will be decided on December 1st. The Spano/Burns run will be over by 8:00 on that day. They shot there last load when they endorsed Andy Spano over Rob Astorino.
    The winning faction will decide the leaders in each of the various Towns. Going forward no candidate will every get the endorsement of the County Conservative Commitee unless the agree with the majority of the principles of the organization. All leaders will have input into the process, this will not be a tyranny where on puppet does the bidding of a has been, broken down political family.

  21. maybe after carl paladino gets about 28% of the vote
    and the conservative party gets less than 50,000 votes
    statewide we will not have to worry about this nonsense

  22. I love the above post, very funny.
    suck it clown you lose again but you have to be getting used to it by now, first zherka beat you down , now Spano

  23. I heard the new Halloween Costume this year is putting on a suit, tie, beard and Westchester Guardian Box on your back to go trick or treating for 8million dollars.
    Trick or Treat Phil?
    Can’t have both this time around you fat pig. See tomorrow in city hall!!!
