PBA Endorses Mike Tannousis for New York State Assembly

STATEN ISLAND, NY – The Police Benevolent Association (PBA) endorsed Michael Tannousis in his bid to succeed fellow Republican Nicole Malliotakis as the representative from the 64th Assembly District (East Shore/Bay Ridge). The endorsement was announced on August 20 in a campaign new release.

Tannousis was a prosecutor for seven years including three at the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office where he prosecuted major felony cases including the successful retrial of the Ramada Inn murder case.

“It is my pleasure to endorse Mike Tannousis in his candidacy for the New York State Assembly. Mike’s commitment to addressing the issues affecting New York City police officers is well recognized,” said PBA President Pat Lynch. “It will be an honor to have him representing our members in the Assembly. We look forward to working with him towards our shared goal of a stronger, safer New York.”

“I am proud to have the endorsement of the largest police union in New York City, the PBA. These brave men and women put their lives on the line each and every day for our community,” said Tannousis. “Given today’s political climate, it is important to show them our support and appreciation for the work that they do. Rest assured that when I’m elected to the State Assembly, I will always have the backs of the men and women in blue.”

In addition to the PBA, Tannousis has also earned the endorsements of the Detective Endowment Association, Sergeant’s Benevolent Association, Lieutenant’s Benevolent Association, Captain’s Endowment Association, the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, New York State Supreme Court Officers Association, the New York State Court Clerks Association, and the National 10-13 Organizations.
