RE: “Vote for Haber,” letter by Linda D’angelo, Sept. 4 edition of the Manhasset Press:
Ms. D’angelo’s letter incorrectly describes the New York League of Conservation Voters’ stance on the candidates in State Senate District 7.
NYLCV—one of the state’s largest environmental organizations—has endorsed Jack Martins because he has consistently fought for a better environment in Nassau County.
This year alone, Senator Martins was a key supporter of all three of the environmental community’s top priorities: 1) the Community Risk and Resiliency Act; 2) the Child Safe Product Act; and 3) reforms to the Brownfield Cleanup Program.
Martins is committed to improving the safety and security of drinking water through the formation of the Long Island Commission on Aquifer Protection (LICAP). And he has pledged to renew and improve programs to clean up contaminated land and grow the Environmental Protection Fund if he is re-elected.
Both candidates in this race sought NYLCV’s endorsement. They both filled out detailed candidate questionnaires about their track records and environmental platforms. They both sat down for interviews with our Long Island Chapter, which is comprised of Nassau and Suffolk County residents, small business owners and environmentalists.
After a careful review, NYLCV’s Long Island Chapter recommended endorsing Jack Martins because of his proven environmental leadership. Our Long Island Chapter was particularly encouraged by his passionate advocacy to improve the quality of drinking water and Long Island’s local waterways.
NYLCV is proud to endorse Jack Martins in District 7 and we encourage voters who care about clean water and environmental progress to support Jack Martins for State Senate on Election Day.
