“Nicole has been a dynamic force for our conference and a tireless advocate for the residents of the 64th Assembly District. She has always represented her constituents with selfless dedication, hard work and intelligence. - Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb.

Nicole Malliotakis was elected to the State Assembly on November 2, 2010, defeating a two-term incumbent with 55% of the vote. She was re-elected 3 times in her district which covers Brooklyn and Staten Island, with 61%, 73% and 100% of the vote consecutively. Nicole was the 2017 Republican nominee for mayor against incumbent Bill de Blasio.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis was named Whip of the New York State Assembly’s Minority Conference on December 28th, 2017. As part of the conference’s leadership team, Malliotakis is tasked with persuading Republicans in the chamber to vote with the conference on key legislation.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to serve on our conference’s leadership team.  With Republicans so heavily outnumbered in the chamber, we fight tooth-and-nail to have our voices heard and stop bad policy from becoming law.  We may be fewer in number, but work hard to ensure that New Yorkers who share our principles of less taxes and more fiscal discipline are adequately represented.  I thank Leader Brian Kolb and my fellow Republicans for their confidence in me.”

The Daughter of Immigrants

Nicole’s father is from Greece and her mother is a Cuban exile of the Castro dictatorship. Her parents came to New York in search of the American Dream, and through their hard work, they attained a modest living as owners of a small business in Brooklyn. Their dedication and entrepreneurial spirit instilled a sense of ambition in Nicole that has inspired her life in public service.


From her dogged determination to expose the corrupt practices of disgraced Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, taking the Port Authority to court over its lack of transparency and winning, to her battle to stop reckless MTA borrowing and Mayor de Blasio’s policy of harboring illegal immigrants convicted of crimes, Nicole has been “tireless” and “fearless” in her quest to protect the New York taxpayer from being “gouged” by tax and spend liberals.

The Product of Public Schools

A lifelong resident of New York City, Nicole attended P.S. 53, I.S. 24, and New Dorp High School. She was the first in her family to graduate from college, earning a B.A. from Seton Hall University and an M.B.A. from Wagner College.
