July 23, 2013 – The annual American Heritage Dinner, jointly convened by the Conservative Parties of Kings and Queens, took place at Russo’s on the Bay in Queens, with Party officers, members and guests enjoying an outstanding event. Members were joined by elected officials from both boroughs and beyond as well as candidates for City Council, NYC Comptroller candidate John Burnett and NYC Mayoral candidate Joe Lhota. State Chairman Mike Long gave a stirring call to all to work for the future of this city. County Chairmen Jerry Kassar of Brooklyn and Tom Long of Queens emphasized the importance of the upcoming elections. All three gentlemen gave high tribute to the recipient of the Thaddeus Dabrowski Award – Shaun Marie Levine -who is Executive Director of the State Party. Ms. Levine delivered a meaningful and gracious speech, informative of not only her work and development with the Party, but of the Conservative Party’s history and ways to face the challenges facing our State and Country. Photographs from the event follow. We encourage you to join us next year when the dinner will be convened in Brooklyn.
