September 13, 2017 - FRANKLIN SQUARE, N.Y. – Nassau County Executive candidate Jack Martins was today endorsed by the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC).
"On behalf of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, I am pleased to announce our endorsement of Jack Martins for Nassau County Executive,” said Bill Banfield, Southeast New York Regional Manager, “We have worked successfully with Jack in the past, when he was a New York State Senator, and believe he has the right experience and vision to lead Nassau County in the years ahead. We are endorsing Jack in his upcoming election for Nassau County Executive as he shares the same ideals as our Union does of strengthening and enhancing middle class worker wages and benefits.”
“I am honored to once again have the endorsement of the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters,” said Jack Martins. “Labor built Nassau County, and the Carpenters continue to play a critical role in building state-of-the art projects that are making the people of our county – and our state -- proud. We must make it easier for everyone to be able to afford to live, work and raise a family here in Nassau County, and I know that working together with NRCC we will do just that and get Nassau back on track.”
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 chaired the Labor Committee, and 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 and expanding state property tax relief programs.
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.
