ALBANY – State Sen. Robert Ortt, a U.S. Army combat veteran, was honored on Monday evening by the Conservative Party of New York State for his 100 percent conservative voting record on legislation in 2019.

Ortt received the “Legislative Scorecard Award” at the Conservative Party’s annual convention in Albany. Ortt pointed to his proud defense and support in protecting the conservative values of New York’s residents.

“I am honored to be recognized by the Conservative Party of New York State and thank its members for their support over the years,” said Ortt. “While Conservative values are constantly under attack by divisive New York City regressives, standing up in defense of our values is something I cherish. I will never shy away from defending those in our state who believe in the conservative principles our nation was founded upon.”

Over his recent years serving in the Senate, Ortt has fought back against Gov. Cuomo and his New York City allies. Not only has he advocated for veterans and military families, but he has also fought to protect the sanctity of life and has pushed back against some of the nation’s most extreme social policies such as the “Abortion on Demand” act.

Ortt has also continually ranked as one of the most pro-Second Amendment legislators in New York State, recently receiving an “A” rating from the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.

Since joining the New York State Legislature, Ortt has ranked as one of the most conservative legislators in the State Legislature and has received the top conservative rating in three of his five years of service.
