STATEN ISLAND, NY —  Today, New York City Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli (R-South Shore) announced his endorsement of Sam Pirozzolo in the race for State Assembly District 63 on Staten Island.  Pirozzolo is the Republican and Conservative nominee.

“Headline after headline, we are reminded that one party rule has failed us.  Kathy Hochul and Albany Democrats have prioritized the interests of criminals over those who follow the rules, they’ve maintained a tight grip on their power through unchecked mandates, and they’ve declared war on working families with ill-conceived policies like congestion pricing that make it difficult for them to put food on their table,” said Borelli, who represents Staten Island’s South Shore in the City Council.  “If you’re fed up with what one party rule has done to our city, state, and nation, then I urge all those who can to vote Sam Pirozzolo for State Assembly this November.  We must not pass on this opportunity to flip this seat and loosen the death grip that one party rule has on our state.” 

“I am thrilled to have earned Councilman Borelli’s support in this critical race to end one party rule and save our state,” said Pirozzolo.  “Just like Councilman Borelli has done at City Hall, I will go to Albany and fight like hell against the dangerous and out-of-touch agenda of the radical left.  We must repeal the disastrous bail law that has set violent criminals loose on our streets; we must end the ridiculous mandates that have forced thousands of family-owned small businesses to shutter; and, we must reign in the over-taxation that has driven carload after carload of our neighbors to cheaper, freer states.  Staten Islanders should not be forced to settle for anything short of this, and I am the only candidate in this race who has the ability to get it done.”
