Astoria’s Greek-American elected officials said their constituents remain concerned but hopeful about Greece’s economic future after the nation’s New Democracy Party was elected by a narrow margin on a platform of remaining within the European Union.
“Hopefully, they’ll get their act together and start getting things moving in the right direction,” said state Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria).

State Senator Michael Gianaris was the keynote speaker on June 27 at Long Island City High School’s final graduation.
