From 1994 to 2003, Martin served on the Caldwell/West Caldwell Board of Education.

Martin also headed waterfront development for New Jersey Transit and was the Verona Township Manager.    He was a budget consultant for the Passaic County Board of Freeholders.

He served Vietnam and spent 28 years as a U.S. Army reservist.
