She has made the rights of senior citizens a hallmark of her tenure and has successfully fought to keep senior centers in Brooklyn and Staten Island from being closed.Another priority of Assemblywoman Malliotakis has been the restoration of MTA bus service in her district. She successfully fought to restore bus lines to her district including the x1, x27, B37, S76 and S93. She also held a series of forums with regard to the MTA Payroll Mobility Tax and its negative impact on small businesses, non-profit organizations, and private schools.The Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo subsequently enacted significant repeals.She has been at the forefront of the fight for relief from the September 2011 toll increase on Port Authority bridges, calling for divestment of costly non-essential real estate holdings and highlighting mismanaged contributions to community organizations.
In October 2011 she submitted an amicus brief in support of the American Automobile Association lawsuit against the Port Authority in federal court, arguing that the toll increases were illegal, and successfully brought an Article 78 proceeding in New York State Supreme Court to get the Port Authority to disclose the results of an economic impact study regarding the effect the toll increases have had on business at New York Container Terminal.During her first year in the Assembly, Assemblywoman Malliotakis has received numerous awards and recognition including being named a ‘Rising Star’ by Capitol News, Home Reporter News, the Hispanic Coalition of New York, and the Greek America Foundation. She has also been named a ‘Top Ranking Pro Jobs Supporter’ by The Business Council of New York State.In 2013, she was selected by the American Conservative Union to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington D.C. as one of the nation’s 10 Conservative rising stars under the age of 40.
