Assemblyman-Elect Michael Tannousis Appointed to Key Legislative Committees

December 23, 2020

STATEN ISLAND, NY – On December 22, Assemblyman-elect Michael Tannousis (R, C – Staten Island/Bay Ridge) was appointed to the Codes Committee, Judiciary Committee, Governmental Employees Committee, and the Cities Committee. His membership on these panels will give former prosecutor Tannousis a leading role in a number of critical areas including public safety and the courts. He has also been appointed the Ranking Minority Member on the Aging Committee where he will be able to fight for our seniors.

Said Tannousis, “I am honored to be appointed ranking member of the Aging Committee at a time when COVID-19 has affected our most vulnerable citizens. I will use my position to ensure COVID-19 vaccines and other healthcare resources are made available to our seniors and other vulnerable residents.”

He continued, “I am also proud to be appointed to the Codes and Judiciary committees. The passage of the failed bail reform laws is the reason I left the District Attorney’s Office and ran for the Assembly. Our public safety has been endangered by these ‘reforms,’ and my placement on these committees will give me the opportunity to effectuate real change in our criminal justice system.”

Michael Tannousis was elected to succeed Nicole Malliotakis representing the 64th Assembly District which covers parts of the East Shore of Staten Island and Bay Ridge in Brooklyn. His term begins on January 1, 2021.
