PORT AUTHORITY PBA ENDORSES JACK MARTINS FOR NASSAU COUNTY EXECUTIVE
FRANKLIN SQUARE, N.Y. (October 29, 2017) – Nassau County Executive candidate Jack Martins has been endorsed by the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, Inc. (PBA), the 24th largest police force in the United States, which represents more than 3,000 active and retired members. This adds to significant, deep support from law enforcement unions on Long Island and throughout New York.
Paul Nunziato, President, said, “We recognize Jack Martins’ longstanding commitment to law enforcement and salute the work he has done throughout his career. We wish him the greatest success in his campaign as we know he has so much more to contribute to the residents of Nassau County.”

I look forward to working with them as we continue to ensure that Nassau County is the ideal place to live, work and raise a family.”
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.
