The New York Young Republican Club is proud to endorse John-Alexander Sakelos for New York State Assembly, representing the 26th District in Queens.
John-Alexander Sakelos was born and raised in Bayside, New York. From a young age, he learned what it took to run a small business from working in his family’s flower shop. He was fortunate enough to receive an academic and service scholarship allowing him to receive his BFA from the University of Michigan and his MFA from George Washington University. In addition to his work as a union stage actor he has been a professor of humanities at various colleges on the East Coast. This is his first time running for public office.
A Young Republican himself, John-Alexander Sakelos decided to mount his campaign for State Assembly after seeing the recently passed bail reform law wreak havoc on his community. John sees the passage of this law as a direct result of political graft that has long gone unchallenged. This, coupled with the host of unnecessary taxes and fees levied against middle class families & mom-and-pop businesses, has made him passionate about implementing term limits to curb the corruption that plagues our state legislature. John is also under 30; if elected, he would be one of, if not the youngest, member of our State Assembly.
The New York Young Republicans urge all voters in Queens’ 26th Assembly District to vote for John-Alexander Sakelos – now more than ever, New York is in dire need of a fresh face who will stand up for the needs of the people and save our city.
