Congrats to Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R–Bay Ridge) on her appointment to the board of the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association, an international organization of elected officials of Greek heritage with representatives from Australia, Canada, South Africa, United States, Zimbabwe, and Europe.

The organization strives to bring together members of Greek descent from global legislatures to strengthen the relationship between Greece and their respective countries, and serve as a think-tank. The assemblywoman is currently in Athens for the group’s annual general assembly, helping to brainstorm solutions to Greece’s debt crisis and figuring out its impact on the world.

Malliotakis celebrated her appointment.

“I am proud of my heritage and honored to be the first American woman elected to the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association,” she said. “The relationship between Greece and the U.S. is a strong and important one, and it is in our national security and economic interests that we see Greece succeed.”

Our representative is one of three American legislators elected to the board, and joins state Sens. Leonidas Raptakis of Rhode Island and Thomas Katsiantonis of New Hampshire.

Standing O raises a glass of Ouzo in celebration!

District office [7408 Fifth Ave. at 74th Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 987–0197].
