Republican Jack Martins in his race for Nassau County executive on Wednesday embraced the platform of the Reform Party and its chairman, Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa.

The agenda includes support for term limits in county government and on the state level.

“Nassau County government is in desperate need to reform,” said Martins, a former state senator.

“The first step toward real reform is enacting term limits to make county government more accountable and end the era of career politicians. The New York State Reform Party is focused on making the commonsense changes we need and I’m proud to be the Reform Party’s candidate for County Executive.”

Martins is embracing the party as the Republican he hopes to replace is not running for re-election. Incumbent County Executive Ed Mangano faces corruption charges.

Sliwa wrested away control of the Reform Party, which had initially been founded by supporters of Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino during his 2014 gubernatorial campaign. The party was initially founded as a ballot line focused on opposing the Common Core education standards.

Astorino later sought to broaden its appeal by adding ethics and government reform to its platform and re-named it the Reform Party.

Sliwa, along with political activist Frank Morano, were able to gain control of the ballot line, however. One of Astorino’s Democratic opponent in this year’s county executive race, Sen. George Latimer, has the backing of the Reform Party.
