YORKTOWN, N.Y.Candidate for county legislator in district four, Terrence Murphy, has received an endorsement from two state officials.
State Assemblymen Robert Castelli and Stephen Katz offered their support to Murphy in his run against Democratic incumbent Michael Kaplowitz (D/Somers).
"In just two years, Dr. Murphy has achieved an impressive record as a public servant," said Castelli, who represents New Castle. "Working cooperatively across the aisle to spur economic development, reduce taxes, cut spending, and preserve our environment and quality of life here in Northern Westchester, he has set forth his independent vision to create jobs. As the owner of two small businesses, he is in the business of creating jobs. I know we can count on Terrence to get the job done on the Board of Legislators."
Murphy, Castelli and Katz all have a background in running small businesses, and commended Murphy for his efforts to work for the taxpayers.
"Dr. Murphy is a citizen legislator we call can be proud of," said Assemblyman Katz, who represents Somers and Yorktown. "He is involved for no other reason than to help make our lives better here in Westchester County. I strongly support Terrence and know he will work hard to make Westchester County more affordable for us to live, work, and raise a family today, as well as provide a future we can all be proud of."
Murphy said its this business experience that has given him the experience to work as an advocate for his potential constituents.
"True leaders like Bob Castelli and Steve Katz are those willing to disregard party politics in order to succeed for the good of the people," Murphy said. "That is what I will emulate as your county legislator. We know that in order for our state and county to succeed we need individuals who are committed to the public trust above all else.
