Councilman Candidate Keeps Momentum Going Towards Election Day
On Thursday evening Yorktown councilman candidate Dr. Terrence Murphy (R, I – Jefferson Valley ) received the endorsement of the Yorktown PBA. Murphy, who is the founder and president of Keeping Westchester Safe, attributes this endorsement to his commitment to the protection of Yorktown ’s children.
“Having the Yorktown PBA support my candidacy is very important to me,” Murphy said. “As the president of a children safety advocacy group, I look forward to working with our local police department to continue to successfully protect our children from the dangers within our society.”
At the beginning of the campaign season Supervisor Don Peters proposed consolidating Yorktown ’s local police department with the county and state police force. A committee is still investigating the idea and its effect on the town.
“This is a very important issue our town is facing,” Murphy continued. “However, as I have been knocking on doors for the past five months, people have voiced their concerns to me about losing control of our local police department. I want to represent the voice and will of the people of this town.”
“I would like to thank the Yorktown PBA for its endorsement,” Murphy concluded. “I look forward to working with them to ensure our community remains a safe place to live and raise a family.”
