Incumbent Martins runs for 2nd term
(Page 5 of 5)
Herald File Photos
Jack Martins and Daniel Ross are the two candidates running for the New York Senate's 7th District.

Martins: We must understand why employers are relocating to other states — high taxes, high energy costs, and the cost of government regulations and red tape.  To reverse this trend and encourage business start ups, we must address these issues by getting Albany’s bureaucracy out of the way. As a member of the Regional Economic Development Council, I have seen the benefits of a regional approach firsthand. Programs like this will keep existing companies in state, create new jobs and bring companies back.

I will also be working to ensure that the commitment to regional development continues and will also work with my colleagues to pass business tax relief to help businesses grow and create new jobs. 

Ross: Bring down the cost of doing business through a reduction in personal income tax for small business owners while allowing a competitive market for energy, especially electricity.

Two years ago when I met Jack Martins i believed in him for his record in Mineola. But as he was elected as the State Senator for our District, he has talked but NOT delivered. Their are many residents that are not pleased with Jack Martins. He promised many SIMPLE changes and did not come through. As a POLITITCIAN YOU SHOULD BACK UP WHAT YOU SAY AND NOT JUST SAY WHAT YOU CANNOT DELIVER. All I see is Jack Martins visiting sports teams, basketball games, football HS games to show his face and promise the young on things he just cannot deliver. Jack Martins said the same message two years ago on the Belmont development, but he did not come through. Now, Jack Martins wants to be re-elected on the same message, but their are many residents that are just upset and will not vote for him. He will not deliver the jobs, development as he says"He just talks to talk and does not come through". Jack Martins should run for Mayor of Mineola, he does not get it as a State Senator!!! Many will cross party lines and vote for Mr. Ross. Politicians that do not come through on what they promised, should NOT BE RE-ELECTED!!!

I must say all what Jack said about taxes and mandates. The taxes did not come down, matter of fact they went UP. I don't hear Jack say lets consolidate school districts, LETS BUILD HOUSING, WHAT EVER IT IS LOW, MIDDLE OR UPPER CLASS HOUSING. WE NEED our residents to stay in Nassau County,and not to move out. WE NEED AFFORDABLE HOUSING - PERIOD. Jack said this two years ago, and we are still waiting. TAXES NEED TO COME DOWN, NOT UP. The school districts really need board members that have some common sense. They just continue to approve budgets that are not sustainable. The boards and superintendents need to come to realize we need consolidation, and they have plenty of $ in reserve funds. Why vote for the 2% cap and then have a provision in the same bill if you have over 60% of the residents to bust the 2% cap, they could, A CAP IS A CAP PERIOD - THAT JUST IS A LOOPHOLE THAT ALLOWS THE DISTRICTS TO BUST THE CAP. This is just more garbage after garbage of bills that pass that Jack supported. AS A REPUBLICAN, OUR PARTY IS A DISFUNCTIONAL - WE NEED BETTER LEADERSHIP, AND NOT POLITICIANS THAT WANT A PENSION ON OUR BACKS THAT WE WILL PAY IN THE FUTURE, JUST LIKE CRAIG JOHNSON, DIDN'T DELIVER, DID'T GET RE-ELECTED.
