Amid a crowded room of over eighty supporters Dr. Terrence Murphy (R, C, I – Jefferson Valley ) formally reentered the political arena as a candidate for Yorktown Councilman. With his wife Caroline and children McKayla and Jack by his side, the lifelong Yorktown resident and former marathon runner, made it known his campaign is ready to hit the ground running.
“This is going to be a sophisticated grassroots campaign which will address the everyday needs of the residents of this great town,” Dr. Murphy declared.
Citing the current economic climate throughout the country Dr. Murphy offered his own prognosis.
“Families all across Yorktown are indeed struggling and looking to the town for answers. As a successful small business owner, my experience will bring jobs back home through new common sense leadership and solutions for the constituents of Yorktown to help them through these tumultuous times.”
Recently, Murphy received a unanimous endorsement from the Yorktown Republican Town Committee in an enthusiastic sign of support for his candidacy. Now, Dr. Murphy has pledged to aggressively pursue the endorsements of several minor parties.
“All political jargon aside, I share many of the values and ideas of the minor parties and I intend on meeting with all of them in hopes of receiving their endorsements,” Murphy said. “People need to realize that partisan politics is not going to solve any of our problems.”
Nearly shouting over the cheering crowd Dr. Murphy made one thing abundantly clear, “No one needs to convince me to run for this job. I want it and will knock on every door in Yorktown to get it.”
