STATEN ISLAND, NY – The Executive Committee of the Kings County Republican Committee gave its strong support to Michael Tannousis in his bid to succeed fellow Republican Nicole Malliotakis as the representative from the 64th Assembly District (East Shore/Bay Ridge). Tannousis was a prosecutor for seven years including three at the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office where he successfully tried major felony cases, including the retrial of the Ramada Inn murder case.
Statement from Kings County GOP: “The Brooklyn Republican Party is proud to give its strong support to Michael Tanousis in his candidacy for the 64th Assembly office. Michael will do a great job representing all of the community, especially at this time in New York City’s history when crime, drug use and homelessness are on the rise, and far too many policies are being put forth that hurt small businesses, discourage school choice, punish academic and business success, encourage criminality and which discourage the hard working principles of so many people regardless of political affiliation. We will work tirelessly over the coming days, weeks, and months to achieve success for the benefit of our communities.”
Michael Tannousis announced his entrance into the race in August and has also recently received the unanimous endorsement of the Executive Committee of the Richmond County Republican Party, as well as the endorsement of the Staten Island and Brooklyn Conservative Parties.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Brooklyn Republican Party,” said Tannousis. “Together, we will work to stop the radical agenda that has been coming out of Albany and to give the residents of Bay Ridge and Staten Island the quality of life they deserve. I thank Chairman Ghorra and the Brooklyn GOP for their support.”
Tannousis began his career in public service in 2006 when he was hired as an aide to then-Minority Leader James Oddo. While there, he learned the gold standard in constituent services and helped many residents that came seeking assistance whether it was filling a pothole, getting storm drains cleaned, or fixing an issue with a property tax bill. Tannousis saw firsthand what government could and should look like when it works for the people it is supposed to serve. During much of this time, he was going to law school in addition to working and after becoming a lawyer fulfilled a long-held dream of becoming a prosecutor.
