NEW YORK – A fundraiser for Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney will be held on Wednesday, June 10, 6 PM, via Zoom conference. Maloney is running for re-election in the 12th Congressional District which includes Astoria and Long Island City in Queens; Williamsburg and Greenpoint in Brooklyn; and the majority of the East Side of Manhattan.
Rep. Maloney is the first woman to serve as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Joint Economic Committee in Congress, and is a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee and co-chair and founder of the Hellenic Congressional Caucus, a bi-partisan coalition of the Members of the House of Representatives that bring a focus on key diplomatic, military, and economic issues in Greece, Cyprus, and the Eastern Mediterranean.
She has delivered more than $10 Billion in federal aid for infrastructure to New York City, including the two largest transit construction projects in the nation, the Second Avenue Subway and the East Side Access project connecting Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Terminal.
A champion of strong U.S. relations with Greece and Cyprus, Congresswoman Maloney is outspoken on the issues concerning the Hellenic community.
As co-chair and founder of the Congressional Hellenic Caucus, Maloney welcomed Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to Washington in January. She said, “I was grateful to join in welcoming Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to the Capitol as we celebrated the strong alliance and friendship between Greece and the United States. I’m encouraged by the economic reforms that the Prime Minister has put in place and look forward to seeing further action taken to better the lives of the Greek people. We also discussed Turkey’s encroachment within Greece’s sovereign waters. This is an unnecessary escalation and threatens Greece’s internationally recognized authority. I stand firmly with Greece and as co-chair of the Hellenic Caucus will continue to do all I can to support Greece’s right to peace and prosperity.”
Maloney has fought for Hellenism, human rights and religious freedom, for the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. She was nicknamed “Bouboulina” after the heroine of the Greek Revolution, by Hellenes she represents, in the world’s largest Hellenic diaspora community. Maloney has been outspoken on Turkey’s violations of international law and illegal incursions into Greece. She also actively supports a just and lasting settlement of the illegal Turkish occupation of the Republic of Cyprus.
The primary election is June 23.
Lou Katsos, host of the fundraiser, is a businessman, philanthropist, and community leader. AHEPA District 6 Governor and National Chairman of AHEPA’s Hellenic Cultural Commission, Katos is also the Founder and President of the East Mediterranean Business and Culture Alliance (EMBCA), and President of the American Hellenic Institute (AHI) New York Chapter.
