Arnaldo A. Ferraro, Stamatis Lilikakis, & Lucretia Regina-Potter
“In consensus atque unitate stat potentia”
There is Strength in Unity
October 1, 2014
At the recently well-attended meeting of the Fiorello LaGuardia Republican Organization, Wednesday evening, the 46 Assembly District Republicans experienced a renewal of the Brooklyn GOP in their district. In breaking with the detrimental tradition of lack of unity within the Brooklyn GOP, the LaGuardia Republican Organization, an Independent Republican group in Kings County, officially endorsed Stamatis Lilikakis for the NYS Assembly in the 46 AD.
Arnaldo A. Ferraro, founder and chair of the LaGuardia Republican Organization, is the last Republican Assemblyman from Brooklyn since 1986. Dr. Ferraro stated in his address to the crowd: “It has been almost thirty years that we, as Republicans, have not been represented in the NYS Assembly. It is about time that we all get together and work hard to elect a Republican Assembly member from our district. Mr. Lilikakis is a good candidate and one that we hope will be successful in his endeavors with all of our support.”
Lucretia Regina-Potter, the Republican District Leader of the 46th Assembly District, and former Republican primary opponent of Mr. Lilikakis, stated: “As a Republican District Leader in Brooklyn, I feel the time has come and is long overdue to bring unity within the Republican Party especially within our own district. Nothing is gained from fighting amongst ourselves; we are coming together to help elect a Republican to the NYS Assembly. I gladly endorse Stamatis Lilikakis for the 46th AD NYS Assembly seat because I believe that he will give the voters a choice and provide for the representation of ALL members of our district without losing his Republican ideals. This is a great event in light of the recent history of the embattled Brooklyn GOP.”
Stamatis Lilikakis was visibly pleased and excited at the recent turn of events. In his remarks to the numerous people there, he proudly said: “I am delighted to receive the prestigious endorsements of the LaGuardia Republican Organization and that of Lucretia Regina-Potter, my dynamic Republican District Leader of the 46th Assembly District. This is one of the last pieces of the victory puzzle of my campaign. United we will defeat the incumbent Democrat and turn Albany around. I will work hard in Albany to make sure our district gets what it needs to grow and thrive. The support of this independent Republican organization will help make this a reality and I thank all of you for your help. Victory awaits!”
The 46th Assembly district includes parts of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Dyker Heights, Coney Island, Seagate and Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.
