Endorsements from Pakistani and Indian community and business leaders in Hicksville, East Meadow, New Hyde Park and Westbury.
Mineola, NY - April 4, 2017 - George Maragos, candidate for Nassau County Executive, is pleased to announce that he has received the enthusiastic endorsement and growing grassroots support of Indian and Pakistani community and business leaders for the September 12th Democratic primary.
The supporters of the Maragos campaign include Dr. Aslam Baig of East Meadow, Vakil Ansari, Zia R Qureshi, Talib Hussain, and Fazlul Haq Syed of Hicksville, Mr. Shafqat Tanweer and Haron Khawaja of Old Westbury, Mukesh Amin of New Hyde Park, and Saadia Taqi a community activist.
“It is an honor to receive the support from so many successful and concerned civic leaders from throughout Nassau County. They understand that hand-picked candidates only serve the special interests and never put the people first. They know that only a County Executive who is not beholden to special interests can root out corruption, lower the unaffordable taxes and create affordable housing” said George Maragos.
“George Maragos is a successful business person and the only qualified candidate with proven experience, and unquestionable integrity, who can bring about real change to improve public safety and protect us from the fear of Trump’s immigration policies pervading our communities,” said Talib Hussain a businessman from Hicksville.
“Our minority communities account for nearly 40% of the county residents but they are forgotten when it comes to government representation and a voice in policy. We are confident, that as an immigrant himself, Mr. Maragos will give our forgotten communities a voice in government and a seat at the table. Nassau County is our home too.” said Miss Saadia Taqi, a community activist.
