The Staten Island Republican Party (SIGOP) is proud to announce it has endorsed five incumbents for re-election in November.

  • Nicole Malliotakis for New York’s 11th Congressional District
  • Andrew Lanza for New York’s 24th Senate District
  • Michael Reilly for New York’s 62nd Assembly District
  • Sam Pirozzolo for New York’s 63rd Assembly District
  • Michael Tannousis for New York’s 64th Assembly District

These five elected officials have a proven track record of service to all Staten Islanders. They support the hard-working families of this borough who are suffering under left-leaning extremism from the federal, state, and city levels of government. With proven leadership and common-sense solutions, these candidates are leading the way to a stronger borough for future generations of Staten Islanders. 

“Our Republican message is resonating with voters in Staten Island and beyond. We are the party of law and order, of prosperity and opportunity, and of supporting legal migration to America. When we see government overreach, our Republican team responds swiftly as we have consistently and successfully done in recent years. We have turned back illogical government mandates, stopped noncitizens from voting, and have addressed the migrant crisis in our streets. Our team is committed to advocating for common-sense laws that will actually have a positive impact in our local community,” said Assemblyman and SIGOP Chairman Michael Tannousis.

“From securing our fair share of federal infrastructure funds and getting the East Shore Seawall back on track, to delivering over $70 million for the NYPD, U.S. Coast Guard, local hospitals, flood mitigation and community organizations, to helping thousands of constituent resolve issues, we’re delivering real results for New York’s 11th Congressional District. We’ve stood together to secure funding for our 9/11 first responders and families, stop the Biden Administration from closing our local VA hospital, reverse noncitizen voting, slow congestion pricing, stop and close migrant shelters and push the Mayor to deport dangerous individuals from our city. I look forward to continuing to delivering more successes for the people of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn,” said Congresswomen Nicole Malliotakis.

“I am proud to have earned the continued trust and support of the Richmond County Republican Committee. We’ve joined together for some big battles over the past year, including a successful court battle that deemed non-citizen voting unconstitutional and another decision that led the way in removing migrants from the former St. John Villa Academy. Working together, I commit to continue to be the voice of reason and common sense, and a vocal opponent of left-leaning policies that are harming our State. I will continue to push back against ill-conceived and nonsensical policies such as congestion pricing and at the same time I will be the voice that prioritizes public safety,” said NYS Senator Andrew Lanza.

“I’m incredibly honored to accept the endorsement of the Staten Island Republican Party as I seek re-election to the State Assembly. I am proud to be the voice of Staten Island’s South Shore in Albany, securing funding and achieving solutions by working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle. I look forward to seeing my neighbors out on the campaign trail this year and welcome any opportunity to meet and discuss the issues that matter most to them,” said Assemblyman Michael Reilly.

“There was a time when they called Trump supporters like me extreme and some still do. Is it extreme to want our streets to be safe from criminals? Is it extreme to want a secure border? Is it extreme to want NYC to flourish and step back from this endless path of self-destruction?

The “extreme” has become mainstream, but public safety and wellbeing are bipartisan issues. It is those priorities that I have fought for in Albany, on behalf of Staten Islanders. I am honored to accept the nomination of the Staten Island Republican Party for re-election to the Assembly.

I want to thank Chairman Tannousis, and the SIGOP Executive and County Committees for your unanimous confidence in me to continue serving the people of the 63rd Assembly District,” said Assemblyman Sam Pirozzolo.
