STATEN ISLAND – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, representing the 11th District of New York, through The National Herald sent deep and warm thanks to the Greek-Americans who supported her immediately after her primary victory on August 23.
As she said from her political office in Staten Island, “my victory today is due to the thousands of citizens who, with their votes and love, filled me with pride but also with responsibilities as I continue my political campaign. I am also sending a big thank you to my colleagues, the staff in my political office who stood by me all this time. Together we battled and we fought an honest and clean fight, which was vindicated.”
The Congresswoman added, “it’s great to represent the Republican party in Staten Island and part of Brooklyn. The citizens of New York are outraged by the monopoly of the Democrats who govern the city, and in my person they see the only voice of the Republicans in Washington.”
Focusing now on the general election, she said, “I will be running against Democrat Max Rose again in the November election and we are confident that we will win again. My goals remain the same, strengthening the borders, supporting all security forces, fighting crime, reducing inflation, and developing our own energy sources so that we are not dependent on enemy or friendly countries. I am proud because I am a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, with my immediate priority being the support of Greek and Cypriot positions and interests. I recently opposed the sale of military fighter planes to Turkey, which would be used to further violate the airspace of Greece and the islands.”
New York State Assemblyman Michael Tannousis congratulated Nicole Malliotakis, telling TNH that as the only Greek-American congresswoman from New York, “her position is very important to both the Republican party and the state and we should all vote for her in the upcoming general elections,” he said.
NEW YORK – Consul General of Greece in New York Dinos Konstantinou in collaboration with the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America hosted the opening reception of the moving exhibition Echoes of Asia Minor: Life, Catastrophe and Resilience on November 29 at the Consulate General of Greece in New York.
