Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis is running to unseat Bill de Blasio as mayor. She represents parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island, and is of Greek and Cuban parents.
At 36 years old, Malliotakis is being called a rising star. She has stood up to expose the corrupt practices of disgraced Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and recently Mayor de Blasio, who defies federal laws by harboring many criminal aliens under the city’s sanctuary policies.
This could mean a loss of millions of dollars of federal anti-terrorism funds. Mayor de Blasio’s sanctuary-city policies jeopardize all innocent New Yorkers, cops, fire fighters and first responders.
I had the proud experience to meet Assemblywoman Malliotakis at the Douglaston/Littleneck Memorial parade in May and was introduced to her by Phil Orenstein, president of the Queens Village Republican Club. I had found her to be honest, hardworking and dedicated to doing right for all the people of New York City, and not just the few.
Nicole Malliotakis, in my book, is a mayor we need, one who is concerned for all of us. Her slogan is “Get New York City out of the hole, so vote for Nicole.” I know I will.
