State Sen. Greg Ball received the “Highest Conservative Rating” award from the New York State Conservative Party on Jan. 28.
It was the second year in a row that the honor was bestowed upon Mr. Ball, whose 40th District includes Lewisboro and Katonah.
“We are happy to give this award to Sen. Greg Ball for the second year in a row,” Conservative Party Chairman,” party Chairman Michael Long said. “Sen. Ball has held up the values of the Conservative Party and continues to do so. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Sen. Ball and hope that his fellow legislators follow his lead this legislative year.”
The Republican from Patterson, who won re-election this past November by defeating Democratic challenger Justin Wagner, said it was a great honor to receive the Conservative Party’s top award two years in a row.
“Chairman Long continues to be an exceptional Conservative leader in a very liberal state and being presented this award two years in a row from such a Conservative hero is humbling,” Mr. Ball said. “As a grass-roots candidate I have won some very tough elections by remaining true to my core and always being able to rely upon my hard-working, patriotic base of supporters. I accept this award for them and in their honor.”
The rankings were based on votes on 20 different pieces of legislation. The first 10 bills passed both houses; the last 10 passed the Senate only. Sen. Ball received a 90 ranking out of a possible 100. Sen. George Maziarz of Newfane also received a 90 ranking. (ARTICLE)
