Checkin’ in with: freshman Bay Ridge Assemblymember Michael Tannousis


Republican Assemblymember Michael Tannousis represents the 64th Assembly District — which encompasses northern Bay Ridge and Staten Island’s eastern shore — in the state’s lower legislative chamber. The freshman lawmaker took office on Jan. 6 after defeating independent Brandon Patterson in the November general election and republican challenger Marko Kepi in the June primary. 

As Brooklyn’s only Republican assemblymember, Tannousis follows in the steps of the district’s former Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, who was elected to Congress in November, where she now serves as the city’s only GOP congressmember.
