Brewster, N.Y.– 1/31/2012— The New York State Conservative Party celebrated its 50th Anniversary Monday night by handing out their “Highest Conservative Rating” award to Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson).
“Senator Ball certainly held up the values of the conservative party last year,” Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long said. “I hope he continues to do the same this session and that his fellow legislators follow his lead.”
Senator Ball said it was an honor to receive the Conservative Party’s top award on their Golden Anniversary.
“Chairman Long has been an exceptional Conservative leader in a very blue state and being presented this award from such a Conservative hero is humbling,” Senator Ball said. “As a grassroots candidate I have won some very tough elections by remaining true to my core and always being able to rely upon my hardworking, patriotic base of supporters, I accept this award for them and in their honor.”
Assemblyman Robert J. Castelli, who also attended the ceremony, said, “I send my congratulations and best wishes to Chairman Long and Senator Ball for his being named Conservative of the Year, for his work in the New York State Senate. Both these men have worked continuously to promote conservative values and fiscal responsibility throughout the district and in state government.”
