Malliotakis Congratulates Speaker McCarthy on Hard-Fought Victory

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) released the following statement congratulating Kevin McCarthy for his election to Speaker of the House for the 118th Congress.
“I’m pleased to see Republicans unite to elect Kevin McCarthy as Speaker for the 118th Congress. While the past few days have been tedious and frustrating, I’m thankful cooler heads prevailed, allowing us to begin the work we were elected to do and enact solutions to address the multiple crises created over the past two years under one-party Democrat rule.
“Throughout this process, Speaker McCarthy has listened to suggestions from across the party and enacted good government reforms to improve the way this institution operates and empower rank-and-file members, including a minimum of three days to review legislation and a requirement that any new government spending is offset with cuts to balance our budget and begin paying our unsustainable $31 trillion debt.
“Nancy Pelosi’s horrendous reign over the U.S. House of Representatives has officially come to an end and we are ready to uphold our Commitment to America and pass solutions to secure our border, stop Biden’s 87,000 IRS agent army, tackle inflation, increase our energy independence to lower costs for American families and restore public safety in cities across America. Let’s get to work.”

Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis was sworn in on January 3, 2021 to represent Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn. Prior to serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 2, 2010, defeating a two-term incumbent. In the Assembly, she served as Minority Whip and the ranking minority member of the Assembly Committee on Governmental Employees. For five terms, Congresswoman Malliotakis fought to restore ethics in Albany, expand transit service in her district, improve programs for senior citizens, reform education and improve New York’s economic climate by reducing the tax burden on small businesses and residents. A cornerstone of her tenure was helping her community recover and rebuild following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In addition to advocating for these same issues in Washington, Congresswoman Malliotakis is acutely focused on securing New York’s fair share of federal mass transit funding, which would go towards expanding transportation services and easing traffic congestion, while also championing public safety by supporting our nation’s law enforcement officers.

She is currently the only Republican member representing New York City in Congress, representing a district spanning the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island.
