LI-DOG Pack Walk at Massapequa PreserveNassau County Executive Candidate Martins Expresses Commitment to Dog-Friendly Nassau County Parks! LI-DOG asked the two candidates for Nassau County Executive for statements on their position regarding on-leash dog walking in Nassau County parks. Former New York State Senator Jack Martins responded, writing “As a dog owner, I am committed to making sure we work with local communities to develop dog-friendly parks.” Nassau County Leg. Laura Curran did not respond to our request. To read Martins’ full statement and what you can still do to help get more access to Nassau County parks, go to Nassau County Exec Candidate Martins Commits to Dog-Friendly Parks.
