Congressman Peter King of Long Island has endorsed Jack Martins for Nassau County Executive.

King praised Martin’s work as mayor of Mineola and senator in Albany.

“Jack, probably most importantly in this year’s election, strongly stands for ethics reform and transparency. We’re going to restore confidence in government. People have to know what’s being done is being done openly,” King said.
