Newly elected Rep. Chris Collins, along with former Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle will headline the state Conservative Party’s annual convention on Sunday at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Road in Colonie.

Also slated to speak: E.J. McMahon of the Empire Center for New York State Policy, pollster John McLaughlin and Sen. Kathy Marchione.

Collins, the former Erie County executive unseated by Democrat Mark Poloncarz, defeated Rep. Kathy Hochul this past fall in a comeback election.

Buerkle was unseated by Rep. Dan Maffei, her foe from 2010.

Monday’s speakers include Karen Moreau, Executive Director of the NYS Petroleum Council and the conference’s featured luncheon speaker is David Bossie, the president of Citizens United.

The Conservative Party is meeting as Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat in his third year, begins to emphasize a decidedly liberal agenda of public spending for political campaigns, raising the state’s minimum wage and women’s equality legislation.

Cuomo has drawn the ire of conservative lawmakers early on this legislative session after pushing through a package of gun control measures.

Look for Marchione, who says she’s garnered more than 100,000 signatures on her online petition to overturn the law, to speak out against the new law.

“Conservatives have come to Albany every year and have presented the members of the legislature with sound fiscal policies designed to save taxpayers money and outlined in the 2013 Legislative Platform,” Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long said. “If the Party’s fiscal policies are adopted, we would not continue to face deficits, and we could end unnecessary borrowing and eventually lower the tax rate. Government spending is beginning to slow, but not nearly enough for voters to be confident that their taxes will be reduced or just stay at the same level.”
