There are so many things going on that it is exceedingly difficult to decide what topics to present here.

It did occur to me that this country has a challenge in electing people with integrity, honesty, moral uprightness, trust, and many other admirable traits. I am pasting the Constitution Party’s platform on Character and Moral Conduct. This really does separate the Constitution Party from all others. You can find all the platform here

Character and Moral Conduct
“John Adams, 2nd President and signer of the Declaration of Independence warned: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any

other.” He also counseled: “The people have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge – I mean of the character and conduct of their rulers.” Our very Constitution is threatened when we permit immoral conduct by our leaders. Public respect and esteem toward public officials has fallen to a shameful level. The Constitution Party finds that a cause of this national state of disgrace is the deterioration of personal character among government leaders, exacerbated by the lack of public outcry against immoral conduct by public office holders. Our party leaders and public officials must display exemplary qualities of honesty, integrity, reliability, moral uprightness, fidelity, prudence, temperance, justice, fortitude, self-restraint, courage, kindness, and compassion. If they cannot be trusted in private life, neither can they be trusted in public life. It is imperative the members and nominated candidates representing the Constitution Party and its state affiliates recognize the importance of demonstrating good character in their own lives.”
I am not, by far, a perfect human being but I take this platform seriously
The January 6 Commission.
The Democrats want to form a January 6 Commission to investigate the U.S. Capitol breach. This is totally unnecessary. Congress already has the tools to investigate January 6. They have subpoena power through several government agencies, Homeland Security among them. They have done this as a SOP hundreds of times already. This is a blatant attempt drag out the process of an investigation for weeks and more like months all the way to the mid-term elections. At this writing, the Senate has not taken any action on this. Hopefully, they will do the right thing and vote it down.
Curtailing Emergency Powers
Kudos to the Pennsylvania voters for limiting the governor’s emergency powers!  
The voters approved two ballot questions concerning curtailing the governor’s emergency powers to the response of the coronavirus pandemic.  

The results show, unofficially, that 54% of voters want the state constitution amended to allow their state lawmakers to terminate a disaster declaration at any time. At the moment, it can only be terminated with the governor’s approval or two thirds of the support of the general assembly.
With nearly the same percentage the voters approved a proposal that limits a disaster declaration to 21 days, instead of 90. They also, approved transferring power to extend an emergency order from the governor to the legislature. Source Spotlight PA by Sarah Anne Hughes.
This is Pillar One of Three.

We are committed to restoring honesty, integrity, and accountability to government.

Do you laugh when you hear a politician say that they are a person of honesty and integrity?
Do you disbelieve just about every promise that political candidates make when running for office?
Do you think that this is the proper relationship between the people and their elected officials?
The Constitution Party solemnly makes this promise to you:
We will hold all our party officers and leaders strictly accountable for their conduct. They will be held to the highest ethical standards in dealing with the public, donors, government officials, and candidates. Corrupt candidates come from corrupt parties. Honest and honorable candidates can only come from a party that insists that all its leaders have the same characteristics.

When interviewing potential candidates, a history and reputation of their character, integrity, and commitment to honesty will be just as important as their commitment to Constitution Party principles.
We will only be seeking candidates that accept and recognize that all elected officials are Public Servants. We are seeking Representatives, not Rulers.
Most importantly, Constitution Party candidates will be strongly encouraged to sign a contract with the voters that lists the campaign promises that they will guarantee to accomplish while in office or face consequences.
WHY A CONTRACT? When you deal with businesses and people that you do not know, the contract is the instrument that we use to ensure that both parties will keep their promises. Our politicians have shown that they cannot be trusted with their promises and we are not going to ask you to trust us. We will EARN IT by signing a contract that specifically lists the promises that our candidate makes and requires them to keep them.
The Constitution of the United States is a contract between the government and the people. Why should candidates be exempted from a contract?

Memorial Day  
Memorial Day is Monday the 31st.  I am encouraging everyone to take a moment of observance and attend or better yet participate in the many local ceremonies. You may buy a few flags to put on veterans’ grave sites. You may escort a veteran that can’t attend a ceremony to one. You may visit a family members or friends last resting place and spend just a little time offering your respect.
If the membership send pictures of their Memorial Day ceremonies I will try to put them on our pages.  
                  If things do not change, they remain the same.
Be the change and join the Constitution Party of New York.

                             Yours in Freedom,
                              William D. Wilday,  
                              Chairman Constitution Party of New York

Monthly Newsletter     February 2021

January was a fairly good month for us.
Our monthly meeting on the 6th of January was very productive. We had a couple of members in attendance with some great ideas and insights. We are putting some of those ideas into practice. Those ideas will help us grow.

The two Meet N Greets we are having per month are starting to bear fruit. Several people are attending. We talk about a wide variety of subjects concerning the Constitution Party of New York and where we are headed. If you can join us for these Meet N Greets please do. You may forward the login information to family, friends, and neighbors. These are a casual way to ask questions and learn more about us.  

We have a new member coming on board from the Rochester area. His membership information has not been settled yet so I am not going to introduce him yet. I will in future correspondence.

  One of our most important goals for 2021 and 2022 is to have quality, enthusiastic Constitution Party members running for local offices. Why is running for local office so important?
  Your local representatives will be making legislative decisions that directly affect your everyday life. Your county legislatures, town boards, village trustees, sheriff, mayors, city councils, county clerks, school boards, and many others will make rules that affect you now. We need Constitution Party members to run for office and become rule makers, not rule followers.  
   Every county has their own Board of Elections. As a candidate you will need to visit your county BOE to research what positions will be up for election, how many ballot petitions signatures you will need and the time frame to get those signatures.  

 Then you will need to form a team of like-minded people that want to solve the problems that are central to all of you. You will then need to form your strategy. A campaign without a strategy is not a campaign at all.  
    Your fundraising efforts, which are unique to every campaign, will be determined by which position you are running for. For instance, when I ran for Schalmont School Board the petition signature requirement was only 25 to get on the ballot. When I ran for Assembly District 111 the signature requirement was 1,500 signatures. Two vastly different campaigns that required vastly different fundraising efforts and teamwork.  
  There is a lot more that needs to be done. If you have thoughts of running for office now is the time to start organizing. You may contact me at to start ball rolling.  I am here to help you regardless of where you are in the state.
  Increasing our membership is another top priority. Without a solid membership base, we will not be able to accomplish any of our goals. Membership is only $20.00 for the year. Our fiscal year is from January 1 through growing December 31st. With membership you will be able to attend the monthly meetings, become an Executive Committeeman, chair, or be involved in important committees, running for any leadership positions at the State Convention and most importantly have your voice heard. We will make a huge difference when we all work together.  
   I am floating the idea of having Patriot Potluck get togethers. We could organize within our own spheres of influence, by that I mean family, friends, and neighbors, that are Patriot minded. We could just get together to enjoy each other’s company. The idea is to exchange thoughts and ideas to let us Patriots know we are not alone.  
  We may have a core group of people to rotate monthly get togethers in homes or set up a monthly get together at a central location. It’s a small way to keep Patriotism alive and well.

Our National Platform on Executive Orders:
Executive Orders Article 1, Section 1 of the Constitution clearly restricts the power to make laws: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States”. Presidential Executive Orders are clearly “legislative powers”. We oppose the use of Presidential executive orders that make law or otherwise usurp the Constitutional authority and responsibilities of the legislative

and judicial branches. This Constitutionally subversive practice must be stopped by Congress. All unconstitutional executive orders must be repealed.

I have been very concerned about the use of Executive Orders from both Democrat and Republican Presidents for a long time.  
As I understand it Executive Orders were designed for the President to be able to quickly issue orders to the Federal workforce when needed. Just as with any Executive of any large company, in this case the Federal Government, the President may feel the need to quickly issue mandates to correct or solve federal problems.  

What is the difference between a law and executive order?
Such orders carry the same force of law as executive orders, the difference between being that executive orders are aimed at those inside government, but proclamations are aimed at those outside government.

What is an executive order and who can overturn it?
Congress may try to overturn an executive order by passing a bill that blocks it. But the president can veto that bill. Congress would then need to override that veto to pass the bill. Also, the Supreme Court can declare an executive order unconstitutional.

I understand I am an outside observer here but the President, by Executive Order, halted the Keystone pipeline. There are several particulars outside government that should be addressed. The Union workers on this project are not federal employees, they are outside government. There are many, I assume, contracts between Canada and several states and even the Native American Reservations that must be honored. This order has affected many entities outside government that the Supreme Court may declare the Executive Order unconstitutional.

The current Republicans should sue the government to get this and the Wall Executive Orders overturned as unconstitutional. There are probably many other that may be unconstitutional as well.

Constitution Party Current Office Holders: (a partial list)
Alabama: Riverside City Council William Cantley
Alaska: Andersen City Council Brad Shepard

Deltana Community Corporation Board Pam Goode
Illinois: Liberty Township Trustee Phil Collins

Utah: Duchesne City Council Bryce Hamilton and Danny Peatross
          Enoch City Council Steven W. Johnson

The above is just a short list of local Constitution Party members elected to office. See the full list at “”. We can do it in New York too!  

                                                       Yours in Freedom,

Chairman’s Notes: Helping Our Communities March 26, 2020

Chairman’s Notes: Helping Our Communities March 26, 2020

Greetings everyone!

1) As I sit here, it came to me that the Constitution Party of New York should be doing something to help our communities cope with this Corona19 virus situation. I would like to focus on ways to help our communities during this crisis on the monthly meeting call. My question of the membership is; What can we do as a party to help our communities? What fundraisers would be appropriate and doable? Who would benefit most from our efforts? I have a nice banner here if anyone needs it. I will send it ASAP. If possible; I may travel to an event you host, to help in any way I can. Please send comments and/or ideas to Thank you.

2) As of this writing I have not received one membership update. As in previous notes our bylaws require the members in good standing must submit a $20.00 annual membership dues and a confirmation of party registration from the NYS Voter Registration form. Our bylaws do not support any other means of membership qualification at this time. If you need help with this please contact me at the above email.

Yours in freedom, William Wilday, Chairmen
