NEW YORK – New York State Assembly Member Nicole Malliotakis on June 11 released the first TV ad in her campaign for Congress in New York’s 11th Congressional District.
In her email announcing the release of the ad, she said, “Day after day I try to lead by example. I love my family and my community. I am fortunate to have inherited my Greek father’s work-ethic and my Cuban mother’s passion to fight for what I believe in. I'm an example of the American Dream and I work hard every day to make sure everyone has the same opportunity I did.
“With so much divisiveness and negativity on television right now, we need positivity and optimism. Please take a few minutes today and check out our first TV ad, share it with your friends, and then help me keep this message of hope and service up on the air.
“What unites us is far stronger than what divides us, and together we’re going to win in November.”
Malliotakis is currently the only Republican woman and only Hispanic Republican elected official in New York City, and represents a district spanning the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island. She was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 2, 2010, defeating a two-term incumbent. Malliotakis currently serves as Minority Whip and the ranking minority member of the Assembly Committee on Governmental Employees.
The Assemblywoman became a household name as the 2017 Republican nominee for Mayor of the City of New York against incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio, holding the mayor accountable for the city’s high property taxes, bloated budget, and status as a sanctuary city. During her mayoral run, she garnered 67% of the vote in New York’s 11th Congressional District.
