Letter to the Editor: Concerning Congresswoman Malliotakis

Dear Editor,

It is after much self-reflection and deliberation, and with a heavy heart, that I rise to criticize United States Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis.

I, similar to so many in the Greek-American community, including the Greek-American Press, have immense pride in the accomplishments of our heritage’s public figures and politicians, and thus prefer to exalt, praise and even heroize them, at times unfortunately minimizing, even overlooking, profound flaws in their character or actions, in allegiance to that common heritage.

Representative Malliotakis placed political obsequience over what should be her threshold principles of allegiance to democracy, the rule of law and the will of the voters, in her support of the misguided effort to deny the certification of the Electoral College.

That position was, of course, laid bare, and even compounded and magnified, after the numbing and shattering insurgency upon our Nation's Capital.

Nicole can most certainly salvage a productive career in public service and overcome this sad and grievous action, if she determines that leading with principle, instead of fealty to craven politics, shall be her guiding lodestar.

Respectfully Submitted,

Gregory J. Stamos

Ansonia, CT
