Westchester County Superior Corrections Officers Association & Corrections Benevolent Association cite strong record of delivering for local correction officers

VALHALLA, NY – Since taking office in 2015 State Senator Terrence Murphy has been a leading voice on the floor of the State Senate for the men and women of law enforcement. The men and women who serve Westchester County as correction officers are no exception and endorsed Senator Murphy’s re-election bid on Wednesday afternoon. Working together, Senator Murphy has delivered critical funding to improve safety within the Westchester County prison as well as advance legislative initiatives pertinent to correction officers in Westchester County and across New York State.

State Senator Terrence Murphy accepted the endorsement saying, “Thank you so much to the Westchester County Superior Officers and the Westchester County Correction’s Benevolent Association. We should never forget about our correction officers who are the people taking care of our some of our most vulnerable neighbors.”

Bruce Donnelly, President of the Westchester County Superior Corrections Officers Association said, “We as correction officers proudly stand in support of State Senator Terrence Murphy. No one works harder for the residents of the 40th Senate District and no one has done more to show their support for law enforcement. He has answered the call time and again, whether with funding for safety equipment or support legislatively. Senator Murphy is a true public servant and we look forward to working with him for another term in the State Senate.”

Alonzo West, President of the Westchester County Corrections Benevolent Association added, “We proudly endorse Senator Murphy’s re-election campaign. From combating the heroin epidemic, to delivering the Hudson Valley’s first Center of Excellence, he has proven to be a leader not just for Westchester County, but for New York State. His support of law enforcement is unprecedented and we thank him for all he has done and will continue to do for the law enforcement community.”
