Following news that the Rockland County Conservative Party is running a candidate for county executive instead of endorsing GOPer Ed Day, the leader of the Rockland County Conservative Party opposition faction, Sam Naemit, announced he is supporting another man, Simon Leschinsky, for the position.
Simon Leschinsky, a member of the Conservative Party, businessman and former Soviet Union refugee who legally immigrated to America, said he now wishes to give back to the community by throwing his name into the race for Rockland County exec. Simon, with his wife and two children immigrated to America and now lives the American dream. “I love this county and it’s time for an outsider to fix this broken government,” he said. “I am a Tea Party Conservative. I believe in less government, less government regulations that stop companies from coming into this county and I believe that Rockland can be great again.”
Last year Rockland County Conservative political party bosses scheduled its annual party convention to elect officers on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. This “obvious Anti-Semitic ploy” cannot go unpunished, Naemit said.
Leschinsky said, “I am proud to be an American and I am proud to be a Rocklander and I am proud to run for Rockland County Executive.” Leschinsky’s primary opponent is Tom Sullivan.
