Sen. Schumer endorses Laura Curran for Nassau County Executive

Curran, a county legislator, has been in office since 2013


Senator Chuck Schumer visited the home of Nassau County Legislator Laura Curran in Baldwin to show his support for her run for County Executive, against Republican candidate Jack Martins.

"We need a breath of fresh air," Schumer said. "We need someone who just in her heart puts communities first."

"I know with the Senator on our side, we are going to win on November 7th and finally end the culture of corruption and give Nassau County the fresh start that it deserves," Curran said.

Marins reacted to Schumer's endorsement by telling FiOS1 News: "Laura Curran can add this endorsement to the list of New York City Democrats who support her, like radical Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, and others who support higher taxes and sanctuary cities."

Election Day is Nov. 7.
