State Sen. George Maziarz has the endorsement of the Niagara County Conservative Party for re-election in the 62nd Senate District, which includes all of Orleans and Niagara counties, and the towns of Sweden and Ogden in Monroe County.

“Standing strong for conservative principles has never been more important in Albany,” Maziarz said in a news release. “I am extremely grateful that the Niagara County Conservative Party knows where I stand on the issues, and I appreciate their support and partnership. I look forward to working with them on everything from improving our economy to protecting gun owners’ rights. ”

Maziarz was first elected to the State Senate in 1995. He may face a challenge for another two-year term from Gia Arnold of Holley, who is a leader in New York Revolution, a group opposed to the SAFE Act.

Daniel Weiss, chairman of the Niagara County Conservative Party, said Maziarz consistently receives high marks from the state Conservative Party in the organization’s annual ratings system.

“Sen. Maziarz has been a great advocate for the conservative values we hold dear,” Weiss said. “These include controlling spending, reducing the tax burden, and respecting the morals of all New Yorkers. We want to thank him especially for his ardent support of Second Amendment rights and his vocal opposition to the SAFE Act. On this issue and others he has been our steady voice.”
