Melville, NY USA……………At a recent Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association (NSWCA) meeting hosted by Massapequa Water District Commissioners Thomas P. Hand, Joseph J. Tricarico and Raymond J. Averna in Williston Park, New York, the NSWCA recognized the contributions of the Hon. Jack M. Martins (Mineola, NY).
NSWCA President and Plainview Water Commissioner Andrew N. Bader presented Mr. Martins with a special plaque in appreciation of his support of NSWCA during his tenure as New York State Senator (2010-2016) from the 7th district. Commissioners from the 21 water districts that comprise the NSWCA were in attendance.
“We are pleased to recognize Jack Martins for his steadfast support of our organization and our programs through the years with this well deserved award,” Commissioner Bader said. “Jack Martins has championed many of our goals and has supported our mission of sustainability and of providing the highest quality drinking water to the residents we serve. He also shares our vision and concerns for the single source aquifer that supplies Long Island with water. So it is in grateful recognition and appreciation that we present this token of our esteem.”
“I thank the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association for their recognition of the work I have done to protect one of the most important resources we have – our drinking water,” Mr. Martins said. “As stewards of our drinking water, the NSWCA has championed reforms that have kept our families and communities safe. It’s a pleasure to work with such a dedicated organization as we work to protect our sole source aquifer.”
