Lynbrook PBA Endorses Jack Martins for Nassau County Executive
FRANKLIN SQUARE, N.Y. (October 28, 2017) – Nassau County Executive candidate Jack Martins has been endorsed by the Lynbrook Police Benevolence Association, adding to significant, deep support from law enforcement unions on Long Island and throughout New York.
Joseph M. Cippola, President, said, “Jack Martins’ years working as Village Mayor of Mineola, and time spent as co-chairman of the New York State Senate’s task force on Workforce Development, will allow Nassau County residents to take advantage of the experience he has in creating jobs and stimulating the local economy.”
“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the Lynbrook PBA,” Martins said. “The men and women of the Lynbrook Police department help to keep us safe. I am proud to have their support, and look forward to working with them to lead Nassau forward.”
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.
Martins has secured deep support for his candidacy, in particular with law enforcement unions, because they trust in his integrity and ability to lead Nassau forward.
