Board of Elections: Lalor Wins Conservative Primary with 70% as Write-in Candidate
(Fishkill, New York): According to the official Board of Elections count, Kieran Michael Lalor won the Conservative Party primary that was held on September 13th with 70.78% of the vote. The results of the primary were not available until now because Lalor was forced to wage a write-in campaign due to New York election rules regarding third parties. It took time for the Board of Elections to hand count the write-ins in this and other races. In addition to the Conservative Party line, Lalor will also be on the ballot as the candidate of the Republican and Independence Parties.
The Conservative Primary vote totals were as follows: Kieran Michael Lalor: 252 Richard Wager: 66 Patrick Manning: 38
Of the Conservative Party primary victory Lalor said, “Our message is resonating because people understand that government can’t spend money it doesn’t have. All levels of government are spending at unsustainable levels.”
Continued Lalor, “Most Republicans and Democrats in office today have gotten elected and reelected by promising to spend taxpayer money to attract or appease a certain voting block. Incumbents run primarily on their record of bringing tax dollars to the district. We can’t continue to send dollars to Albany and then applaud our lawmakers for bringing pennies back to the area. This politicized spending has resulted in high taxation, the mass migration of 1.6 million people out of the state in the last decade and the worst business climate of any state in the Union.”
Lalor knocked on 8,000 doors between March and the September primary. He also ran an issue-oriented campaign putting forth a detailed platform and constantly releasing statements with solutions to the major challenges facing New York and Dutchess County.
“Voters appreciate that we put out a bold and specific platform to grow the economy and fundamentally reform Albany. While all voters don’t necessarily agree with every plank in the platform, they appreciate that I am willing to put my ideas out there with specificity rather than simply running on meaningless platitudes. Voter appreciation of our transparency trumps differences they might have on certain issues,” added Lalor.
Concluded Lalor, “Times are tough and voters are looking for leadership. They like my support for term limits, my plan to reduce legislator compensation and ban retired lawmakers from becoming lobbyists. Most of all, voters appreciate that I am willing to lead from the front and self-impose these reforms on myself while championing the reforms in the legislature.”
