Malliotakis Term in Review: 7,496 Cases Closed, Over $72 Million Returned to NY-11
Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) today released the following statement and attached report card recapping her first term in office representing New York's 11th Congressional District:
“During my first term in Congress, my office has helped thousands of constituents caught up in red tape and bureaucracy expedite hundreds of passports, make the honorable step of becoming legal U.S. citizens, and obtain over $36 million in money owed to them from the federal government. Not only this, but we've been able to deliver over $36 million to local organizations that include the NYPD for new forensic and protective equipment, our local hospitals to finish the construction of new wings, the Staten Island Ferry to modernize our fleet and keep our ferries running on time, and the U.S. Coast Guard Sector New York so it can upgrade housing for our Coasties. To put this into perspective, our office has been able to bring home four times as many federal dollars as my predecessor which directly benefits the hardworking men and women of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn. My first term in Congress has been nothing short of productive and I'm looking forward to building on these successes in a Republican-led Congress come January."
