Assemblymember-elect Michael Reilly (R – South Shore) announced today the appointment of Peter Giunta as his Chief of Staff. Peter currently serves as Deputy Chief of Staff and Budget Director to South Shore Councilmember Joseph Borelli.
“I am proud to have earned a reputation for always being accessible to the community, which is why it was important to me that I assemble a team with the same devotion and focus as mine,” said Assemblymember-elect Michael Reilly. “Peter is a pragmatic problem solver who has proven himself to be a dedicated servant to the community in recent years and I believe he is exactly the right person to lead my team.”
“I thank Assemblymember-elect Reilly for this opportunity and Councilmember Borelli for his support these past several years,” said Peter Giunta. “I very much look forward to continuing my service to the people of Staten Island in this new role.”
“Peter has been one of my best staffers since my first campaign in 2012; and while I am sad to see him go, I’m happy to see him grow into new and more prestigious roles. The South Shore is lucky he is staying in public service,” said Councilmember Joseph Borelli.
Peter had served for then-Assemblyman Borelli since 2013, starting as a Constituent Representative before taking on the role of Deputy Chief of Staff in 2015.
Michael Reilly was elected to the New York State Assembly, representing Assembly District 62 which covers the South Shore of Staten Island. He succeeds outgoing Assemblymember Ronald Castorina Jr. on January 1, 2019.
