ASTORIA, N.Y. – Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris issued the following statement on learning of the passing of Petros Galatoulas, the longtime President of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York.

“Petros Galatoulas will always be remembered for his dedication to New York’s Greek American community.
