His Rival, Rep. Malliotakis, Held Her Own Rally on March 13
Another rally was held to save the endangered Brooklyn VA Medical Center, 800 Poly Place on Thursday, March 24.
The gathering was held outside the facility. It was hosted by former U.S. Rep. Max Rose, who is running for the same seat he held before losing to incumbent Nicole Malliotakis in 2020.
Representatives of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) attended Thursday’s rally, along with local veterans and staff members at the VA Medical Center, many of whom belong to the union. According to its site, the AFGE is the largest federal employee union, representing 700,000 government workers nationwide and overseas.
Malliotakis hosted her own rally to save the facility on March 13, along with a group of veterans.
