Chairman Jerry Kassar Calls Him a Hard-working Community Activist

Already endorsed by the Brooklyn Republican Party earlier this month, City Council candidate Ray Denaro has picked up the endorsement of the Brooklyn Conservative Party and its Chairman Jerry Kassar.

“Ray Denaro is a dedicated, hardworking community activist who wants to make our city and his district a better place to live and raise a family,” said Kassar. “The Brooklyn Conservative Party is proud to endorse him for City Council.”

Denaro will run in District 47, which covers Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Gravesend and Sea Gate. He is challenging Democratic incumbent Mark Treyger, who has held the seat since 2014. 

Denaro told the Brooklyn Eagle, “I am humbled to carry the endorsement of the Conservative Party. I look forward to working with them to bring common sense and responsible policies back to City Hall and to always have the best interest of our residents in Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Coney Island and Sea Gate.”

Regarding the Conservative Party endorsement, Ted Ghorra, chairman of the Brooklyn Republican Party told the Eagle, “Ray Denaro is the right person, of high integrity and values, at the right place and time.”

Denaro is delighted by the Conservative Party’s show of support. “Some of my biggest reasons in running for City Council is to be a voice for and by the people,” said Denaro.

“Too often residents have voiced their concerns with safety, quality of life and overall well-being and it’s fallen upon deaf ears. I am honored that the Conservative Party sees that I am a candidate that will be true to my word and will work endlessly to ‘Bring Brooklyn Back.’”
