The New York State and Brooklyn Conservative Party urge a no vote on NYS ballot initiative number 3. The ballot proposal is presented as a beneficial bond program to purchase equipment for schools. However, the result will be additional debt burden down the road to purchase equipment and technology that will long be obsolete before the cost is paid. It is an irresponsible proposal and does not offer any solution. Public and private investment in education is required. Bonds and additional debt are not the way to do this.

Michael Long, Chairman of the New York State Conservative Party, joined by Brooklyn Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar, and Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-C, 64AD) announced the Party’s support of a Yes vote on Proposition 2, which will be on the ballot on November 4th. The proposition allows bills to be transmitted electronically to the legislators and avoid generating thousands of pages of text. It makes sense for legislators to be able to read the legislation and transport its text and is environmentally efficient. Brooklyn Conservative Party urges a yes vote in November on Proposition 2 and commends our State Assemblywoman, Nicole Malliotakis who is leading the charge for paperwork reduction
