The bid by Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis for mayor even if she loses is the best thing to happen to New York Republicans in a long time. While President Trump and national Republicans continue a misguided campaign to intimidate immigrants and strip funding from cities, local party leaders have been trying to present a different face of Republicanism to a voting public growing younger and more diverse every day.
Malliotakis fits the bill. She is the daughter of immigrants from Cuba and Greece, and at age 36 counts as a millennial, winning acclaim in 2013 as one of the American Conservative Unions Top 10 Under 40.
A Republican ticket of young black and Latino citywide candidates would cause double-takes in New York and beyond. More importantly, it would signal that the GOP is serious about being an opposition party offering realistic alternative ideas.
The mayor has a tendency of throwing money around. His answer to every problem is to just give more money and not exactly get to a solution, Malliotakis told me shortly after announcing her run against Bill de Blasio. I thought, someone needs to give him a hard time and try to prevent him from going back to City Hall. He doesnt deserve another term.
On education, Malliotakis says de Blasios Renewal Schools program, which will have directed more than $700 million to struggling schools through 2018-19 isnt working.
The moneys not getting to the classroom, she claims. Its going to consultants, its going to contractors. Meanwhile, teachers are paying for their own supplies.
If the Republicans champion sensible solutions on schools, taxes and electoral reform, theyll be well on their way to becoming a real alternative to the liberal group-think that often stops progressive New York from actually making progress.

Which proves that simply ending mass immigration is a way to preserve the United States. The "voting public" wouldn't be "more diverse" every day if the entire planet wasn't allowed to stampede into our country.
Trump's doing the best he can in the face of insanity like this.
the average mexican woman, in mexico,has 2 kids. In America, they have 6, and White women push small dogs around in baby carriages. We are screwed
“campaign to intimidate (illegal) immigrants”
Yeah. Because we pay them to.
