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.

Nassau County GOP Calls On Mangano To Resign

Republican leaders of the Nassau County legislature called on County Executive Ed Mangano to resign.

Monday’s news conference came only a few hours after Mangano had given his State of the County address.

Mangano was indicted on federal bribery and corruption charges in October.

Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves says it was a difficult decision to call for his resignation but Mangano has to do what is best for the county.

Mangano called the move by the Republican leaders “election season nonsense.”
