Senator Martins was introduced by Great Neck Chamber of Commerce President Valerie Link of Anton Community Newspapers. He kept his initial comments brief, speaking about the importance of local governments such as villages, so that chamber members would have the opportunity to ask questions.

From the Desk of Senator Jack M. Martins

In just a few months in Albany, we have made considerable progress in getting New York State back on track. When the Assembly, Senate and Governor have worked together toward a common goal, we have seen that we are capable of making significant improvements in our State. This was the case in March when the Senate worked with the Governor on a state budget. Not only was this highly complex and contentious process completed on time, but more significantly, it represented a change from past practices that have repeatedly failed the residents of New York. We were able to successfully balance the State budget and close a $10 billion deficit while not raising any taxes or fees.

From the Desk of Senator Jack M. Martins

As we head into the summer, we are still hard at work in Albany. We must continue to build on the momentum we’ve established since March when the Senate, Governor and Assembly worked together to pass an historic budget that closed a $10 billion budget gap without raising any taxes or fees. It represented a major change from how Albany has conducted business in recent years when the state routinely outspent its revenues and then relied on taxpayers to close the deficits with tax increases. This represents a new era in state government – one of fiscal responsibility.
