The New York Young Republican Club endorses Vito Fossella for Staten Island Borough President. Fossella is a seven-term Congressman who formerly represented New York in the 13th Congressional District. Fossella has been formally endorsed by President Donald Trump. “Vito is strong, tough, loves our Country and truly loves the Great People of Staten Island — a powerful voice against crime and all other things going wrong in the city that we love,” Trump stated.
During his time in Congress, Fossella had one of the strongest conservative voting records. Two of his Congressional legislative initiatives focused on the effort to repair the 86th Street subway station in the Bay Ridge area of Brooklyn, as well as the return of over $700 million to individual investors by eliminating fees by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission with the Investor and Capital Markets Fee Relief Act, which was signed into law in 2002. One of Fossella’s top priorities for this election is leading a strong COVID-19 recovery effort in Staten Island, including small business revival. He has also been a staunch supporter of law enforcement, consistently pushing back against the “defund the police” movement. Fossella is committed to toppling the progressive, far-left, political agenda of New York City officials.
Fossella stated, “We want to do the best possible job for the people of Staten Island. We want Staten Island to have the strongest voice possible. I will make sure Staten Island will not be the forgotten borough.” The New York Young Republican Club strongly urges all Staten Island voters to support Vito Fossella for Staten Island Borough President.
