Kings County Conservatives hold Annual Awards Dinner
Party Leaders Stuart Avrick and Nancy Roden Are Honored
The Kings County Conservative Party, formed in 1962, held its annual awards dinner at Tre Fontane at 222 Avenue U in Gravesend. The event was hosted by Jerry Kassar, Brooklyn Conservative Party Chairman and state Sen. Marty Golden’s chief of staff; and Fran Vella-Marrone, Brooklyn Conservative Party vice chairman and U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan’s Brooklyn district director.
The Jim Gay Memorial Award was presented to Manhattan party leader and activist Stuart Avrick, and the Alice Gaffney Memorial Award was given to Conservative Party executive board member Nancy Roden. The featured speaker was Barry Bennett, senior strategist for the Trump campaign.
“Our annual event was a wonderful gathering of candidates and activists who have dedicated countless hours assisting the Conservative Party in its efforts on behalf of hardworking New Yorkers,” Kassar told the Brooklyn Eagle. “The Conservative Party wants smaller government, less taxes, safe streets, better schools and a quality of life second to none.”
