Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I – Brooklyn, Staten Island) has been named Whip of the New York State Assembly’s Minority Conference.  As part of the conference’s leadership team, Malliotakis will be 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,” said Assemblywoman Malliotakis.

“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.  I congratulate Nicole on this well-deserved promotion and look forward to working with her to advance our Conference’s priority issues in 2018,” said Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb.

Assemblywoman Malliotakis is approaching her eighth year of service in the Assembly.  In addition to her Whip duties, she will continue serving as the ranking minority member of the Governmental Employees committee, as well as her work on the Ways & Means, Banks, Election Law, Corporations, Authorities & Commissions, and Transportation Committees.
