(STATEN ISLAND, NY) – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) today announced the hiring of Sherry Diamond, a Staten Island native, as District Director to oversee her district offices in Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn.
“Sherry is well known in our community,” said Congresswoman Malliotakis. “For over 27 years, she has assisted the residents of Staten Island and Brooklyn in both the public and private sectors. Overseeing district office operations, emphasizing constituent services, and advocating for our community are tasks that are not unfamiliar to Sherry. She truly knows Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn inside and out and we’re thrilled to have her join our team.”
“I want to thank Congresswoman Malliotakis for giving me an opportunity to once again serve the residents of Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn,” said Sherry Diamond. “I have known the Congresswoman since 1998, and for as long as I’ve known her, she’s always had a desire to give back. The Congresswoman’s top priority is advocating for the specific needs of her constituency in Congress and I’m honored to work with her and her team on behalf of the Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn communities.”
Last month, Malliotakis announced Laurie Windsor will serve as Office Director for her district office in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
