Assemblywoman steps up to help storm-ravaged Puerto Rico

Bay Ridge

Thanks to Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, (R-Bay Ridge-S.I.) for collecting and delivering much needed supplies to Assemblyman Felix Ortiz (D-Sunset Park). The goods, which were received in the assemblywoman’s district office in Staten Island, will help out those in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

Like many New Yorkers, I have family in Puerto Rico and was so relieved to hear that my relatives are safe and sound. The rest of the island, however, is not so lucky and we need to do everything we can to get them the assistance they need,” said Assemblywoman Malliotakis, adding, “My district in Staten Island is particularly generous during crises like this because many of them know what it’s like to have lost everything in a Hurricane. When Hurricane Sandy struck, we received help from all over the nation. Now, they are helping others in need and I couldn’t be more proud.”

Standing O says, “Thank you.”
