Joint Statement by Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis & Joe Connor (son of FALN bombing victim) on Oscar Lopez Rivera

by Malliotakis on | Nicole Malliotakis

While we are pleased that Oscar Lopez Rivera will not be recognized at the Puerto Rican day parade as a freedom fighting hero, the fact remains that this terrorist has shockingly shown more integrity in doing what is right for the parade than our own city leadership who refuse to denounce him and instead waited until he declined the award. We and all New Yorkers should never forget the terror FALN inflicted on our city and the lack of leadership exhibited by Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Viverito.
