Republican Town Board candidate Terrence Murphy has been endorsed by the Yorktown Police Benevolent Association.
“Having the Yorktown PBA support my candidacy is very important to me,” Murphy said in a press release.
Murphy attributed the endorsement, in part, to his concerns about a proposal by Supervisor Don Peters to study consolidating the town police department with the Westchester County Department of Public Safety.
Meanwhile, according to campaign finance disclosure filings (viewable here) as of Oct. 2, Murphy has raised more than $11,000 since July and has more than $10,000 on hand.
“I think this just confirms what I have been hearing when I knock on doors which is people in this town want a change,” Murphy said in a separate release. “Raising money is always the worst part of politics and I am very grateful for all those who have given to my campaign.”
Murphy’s campaign chest is bested only Democrat Vishnu Patel, who has financed his own campaign. As of Sept. 25, Patel had more than $15,600 on hand.
