FRANKLIN SQUARE, N.Y. (October 27, 2017) – Jack Martins’s campaign for Nassau County Executive made the following statement:
“With 11 days to go, momentum around Jack Martins’s candidacy for County Executive continues to build. The closer we get to Election Day, the more voters are getting to know Jack and understanding that they have a clear choice: he is the candidate with the integrity, experience and ability to lead Nassau County forward,” E. O’Brien Murray, Martins’s campaign manager, said. “This is a unique election. Jack Martins is an experienced leader with executive experience and detailed proposals to fix our unfair assessment system, hold the line on taxes, combat the opioid crisis and end corruption.”
“Laura Curran is, unfortunately, bereft of ideas. Even though she has been a part of county government for the last four years and has had a ‘front row seat’ to witness all the issues she is talking about now, she’s said nothing and done nothing to make the county better,” Murray said.
As Mayor of Mineola, Martins developed balanced, fiscally responsible budgets and debt management plans that substantially reduced Mineola’s debt and returned the village to a sound financial footing. He also led the effort to create Mineola’s award-winning master redevelopment plan that expanded the village’s economic base through smart growth principles.
As a State Senator, Martins enacted an historic series of balanced, on-time state budgets while cutting state taxes on middle class families to the lowest level in 50 years, enacting the state property tax cap and delivering record state funding for Nassau County schools.
Jack Martins is the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party nominee for Nassau County Executive. Jack is a former three-term New York State Senator, the former Mayor of Mineola, and he lives in Nassau with his wife and four daughters. Jack Martins is focused on making Nassau County a better place to live, work and raise a family. As Nassau County Executive, Jack is committed to ending the corruption that has compromised the public’s trust in government, protecting local property taxpayers and creating an economic renaissance to provide a brighter future for the middle class. The election is November 7, 2017.
