The New York State Assembly passed the bill A08354 Titled the Marriage Equality Act, but known to many as the Gay Marriage Act, on June 15, 2011. The Kings County Conservative Party thanks those Brooklyn Assembly Members who supported traditional marriage by voting against this bill.
Assembly Members who voted “NO” on the bill were:
Peter Abbate ; Inez Barron; Bill Colton; Steven Cymbrowicz; Dov Hikind; NICOLE MALLIOTAKIS; and Annette Robinson
The Brooklyn Conservatives thank Nicole Malliotakis, who is a public servant who kept her campaign promise to the Party.
We also wish to thank State Senator Marty Golden, who has not waivered in his support of traditional marriage and opposition to same-sex marriage laws.
A NYS Senate Bill may come to a vote by Monday, June 20
Many thanks to all who came to remember the fallen and those serving our country. The Kings County Conservative Party has raised a renewed POW/MIA Flag on Memorial Day for the past 29 years and was gratified to have such a large turnout this year with Kings County Chair Jerry kassar, Vice Chair Fran Vella-Marrone and members of the Executive Committee, as well as State Party Chair Michael Long, Assemblywoman Malliotakis, Senator Marty Golden and the Boy Scouts and citizens of the community. Immediately following the commemorations, members attended and participated in the Bay Ridge memorial Day parade at 88th Street featuring Herb Ryan, Steven Ryan and Dave Ryan – all veterans, Conservatives, proud Americans
