WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis released the following statement on the election of Eric Adams as Mayor of New York City on November 2: “For nearly eight years Bill de Blasio has overseen the demise of our city with his far left agenda. An agenda that has made us less safe, deteriorated our quality of life, broken a once great education system and wasted billions of our hard earned tax dollars.
“Tonight the voters have spoken and elected Eric Adams as our next mayor. As the lone Republican in New York City’s congressional delegation, I congratulate Mr. Adams on his victory and pledge to work with him where we can find common ground to reverse the destruction created by Bill de Blasio. It’s my sincere hope that Mayor Adams has the will lead our city out of the mess that Mayor de Blasio has created, restore public safety, and get our economy back on track.”
Congresswoman Malliotakis serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. She also holds the position of Assistant Whip for the House Republican Conference.
