Two local-area Assemblyman have thrown their support to District 4 county legislator candidate and fellow Republican Terrence Murphy of Yorktown.
Assemblymen Robert Castelli and Stephen Katz issued a statement of support for Murphy, now a Yorktown Councilman, last week.
“In just two years, Dr. Murphy has achieved an impressive record as a public servant,” said Castelli, whose 89th Assembly District includes a portion of District 4 that lies in 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.”
“Dr. Murphy is a citizen legislator we call can be proud of,” said Katz, who represents Somers and Yorktown in the 99th Assembly District. “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.”
Of the endorsements, Murphy said, “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. 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. This is the greatest principle we operate under, and with your support this November we will continue restore honesty and integrity to our government.”
