Nassau County executive candidates make final campaign push

Election Day is on Tuesday

Share

SYOSSET — Democrat Laura Curran and Republican Jack Martins are making their final push to impress voters deciding who will replace Ed Mangano as the next Nassau County Executive.

Martins met with voters at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Massapequa Park on Sunday, speaking about an issue he says is especially important on Long Island —
gang violence.

“Every single law enforcement group out there has endorsed our campaign. We've sat with them, we've talked about how we will marshal resources in order to literally take the fight to these gangs because there’s a commitment I've made that we are going to wipe them out because the new norm in this county cannot be looking and searching for bodies,” Martins said.

Curran spent Sunday knocking on doors in Massapequa. She says she’s committed to fighting gang violence. She also spoke of an issue that has become the driving force behind her campaign, corruption within government.

“There's a lot of momentum, a lot of energy and people are ready for a fresh start. People are looking for a change agent to break up the culture of corruption and hoping we can go all the way on Tuesday,” Curran said.

Both candidates are urging voters to get to the polls and cast their vote on Tuesday.
