Marko Kepi, the best Republican, in the East Shore/South Brooklyn NYS Assembly Primary

Ruben Avxhiu

The New York Assembly seat is been finally vacated by Nicole Malliotakis, probably the worst office holder in the history of this district. She has always considered herself too big for this seat. Always running for something else. If it was not for Mayor, it was for the US Senate. She has always seen this seat a stepping stone to somewhere else.

Now she is finally leaving. To run for something else, of course. However, she still wants to keep the seat hostage, by placing a minion of hers there. She’s a Greek-American, he is a Greek-American. Maybe Malliotakis thinks the seat is her property to give. Well, it is not and she will have the proof on June 23rd.

This seat in the New York State Assembly is a rare channel for the people of East Shore and South Brooklyn to have their voice heard in Albany. Treat it with the respect and the dignity it deserves.

I hope the Republicans in the area ignore the parade of the big-name endorsements from the City, who have no idea what is really happening there and elect for once a Republican who will stand by them and not treat them like a temporary station of their political trajectory.

They can place their trust on Marko Kepi as the man for the job. He has the integrity, the energy, and the courage to stand up and speak up for them.
