The Kings County Conservative Party held its 49 annual reception on November 3, 2011 with a packed group of supporters in attendance. The Party bestowed the honors of the James Gay Memorial Award upon NYS Conservative Party Chair Michael Long, who like the award’s namesake pioneered and has been a devoted leader of the movement and the Party. The Party presented Executive Committeemember and long-time devoted stalwart Robert Maresca with the Jim Ryan Memorial Award.
On hand for the event were many community leaders, friends, active Party members, former Assemblymember Matthew Mirones, Conservative Party candidates and elected officials including State Senator Marty Golden, Assemblymembers Malliotakis and Raphael Espinal, and City Councilmember David Greenfield to name a few.
On to next year’s 50th Annual celebration!!
