Murphy is a puppet with no mind of his own. Let's not forget he ran for County Legislator twice and lost. He was classless and made up lies about his opponent. The guy is so clueless when it comes to public policy, zoning and has been a joke as a council member. He goes around town and shows up at an event to shake hands, yet that's it. He is the candidate of NO substance since he is so unaware of the issues.
Astorino needs better messaging. How will he sway the public employees union to vote for him when he slashed the Westchester public employees? What's he know about fracking? How about all the empty small businesses all around Westchester and what did he do to attract small businesses? How about the political hacks he has running Westchester Tourism and their outdated website. Let's not forget about his Chief of Staff who seems unable to articulate a single constituent letter when you address housing issues (coop & condo issues. How about all the tax incentives that Pepsi got to staff in Westchester yet Pepsi outsources their hiring HR Dept. to a NJ based company. View Comment
Murphy's campaign sign is one big plastic piece of crap which is not recyclable. But, he has no clue when it comes to environmental issues, recycling and good luck talking to him about zoning. Yorktown Voters have showed the popular dumb jock vote - the lacrosse vote. We have many issues in this town that Murphy has failed to address, but what he does is have a ghost writer because all he does is go around town shake peoples hand and that's it. Asking him about public policy, budgeting and you will get a big DUH!!! Town of Yorktown has over 40,000 voters and the turnout was terrible.
Note: If signs are not removed today, please call the Board of Elections and have him fined. He should of been fined the past couple of weeks by putting his signs on public property. View Comment
I have to say a vote for Murphy is a wasted vote. This guy is one of the most inarticulate residents you could possible meet. He's run the same messaging campaign for 2 County Legislative races (NOTE HE LOST BIG TIME) and town board race. He has someone who's his ghost writer doing his website and social media since he has NO knowledge of the issues. Asking him about environmental issues and you get a big duh, ask him about sewers an the Clean Water Act and you get a big duh. What Murphy does is go to all the ball games and shake hands and that's it. He's a big flip flopper when it comes to the issues and has no understanding when it comes to simple policies and procedures. Good luck getting him to address zoning issues and again you will get a big duh from him. The Republican party of Yorktown had nobody else who wanted to run, again. And, Terrence's head is so big with his swelled up ego that he is on a galaxy far far and away that he thinks he can be a Senator.
He's a vindictive man who refused to bow down gracefully to Mike Kapowitiz when he lost TWICE!!!!! as County Legislator. Also, he comes unprepared at town board meetings with very little knowledge of the issues. I wouldn't have this guy adjust my back. View Comment
Murphy is a babbling idiot. Flip flopper with no knowledge of environmental laws, zoning rules or regulations and the Republican party had nobody to run for the seat so again they sent him and his big ego running for Senate. What's amazing is that he has run for County Legislator twice and over the past now 4 campaigns he has he talks the same bullet points and that's it. He's been a failure on the town board and basically all he does is go to local sports games and shake people hands. There definitely is a behind the scenes ghost writer like he has had in his past campaigns since he's not that articulate on the issues. My favorite lately is all the Murphy signs posted everywhere that are not recyclable. Yorktown must find better candidates. View Comment
Can we fine Murphy for littering? His signs are illegally placed all over the place? This guy is a failure when it comes to environmental issues as his plastic signs are not from recycled paper....can he just please drop out of this race and move out of town. I'm so sick of this guy showing up, shaking hands and that's it. Ask him any question about government policy and you get a big DUH! View Comment
Has everyone noticed how the chiropractor can't put two sentences together and has Matt Slater doing all his social media, etc? Now, we got this joke of a council member going around to any community activity possible shaking hands and again no substance to his campaign. This is a repeat of Murphy's failed legislator campaigns...Murphy the no substance campaign, no knowledge of any issues, should be a used car sales person instead. Just look at his none existed record as a council member. View Comment
Another reason to NOTE vote for Terrence Murphy. Besides he is uneducated on every environmental issue to could think of, zoning issues and you name the issue and he he has no knowledge. He couldn't tell his constituents why he supported a pipeline or why he didn't. View Comment
Murphy is the biggest hack. First of all in another article he said that he didn't know Ball was not running. Big lie and he had his website all read to go. Murphy is one of the worst candidates you could find. Besides the fact he has done nothing as council member besides go to all the sports games around town and shake hands, and show his face at any event. Murphy has a spokesperson because he can't utter a single comprehensive sentence without it being a sound bite or some cliche remark. Let's not forget he has had two failed runs at county legislator where he got beaten pretty good. He has no qualifications to run for office, and it seems the Republican party of Yorktown must of pulled straws again to find a candidate. Doesn't anyone remember during one of his last runs for office during a debate with Mike Kapowitz he was just so embarrassing. The guy has no knowledge of state laws, zoning, public policy and he's a really crappy town council member. View Comment
Here we go again since it's election season we got Murphy commenting on drug use. This guy needs to be stopped from pontificating on everything since he has no expertise in anything. Every couple of years he stands outside the local supermakets handing out the same old literature with the same old photo of himself and telling ppl taxes are too high. Meanwhile, good luck trying to get him to address lack of sewers in some areas of Yorktown, zoning, preservation. View Comment
Ball & Murphy should give FULL credit to former Town Supervisor Linda Cooper who is the Regional Rep for State Parks Dept. for allocating the money for the park.
Another example of Ball taking credit for something he didnt do and Murphy following on his leash. View Comment
The HUD folks are clueless when it comes to building in Westchester since some of the sites they have chosen have been wetlands and near our drinking water. HUD needs to reevaluate what they require since there specs and requirements don't reflect the world in 2014. View Comment
The town board is clueless when it comes to zoning. I see all around Yorktown garages turned into Grandma's apartment (illegally) and other illegal basement apartments. Fences around houses which are ridiculous. Have you seen some of the double fences wrapped around some people's houses. Yet, the town board does NOTHING about this and the zoning board ignores all notices and letters from residents. I gather until one of these illegal apartments has a tragedy the town won't do a thing about it. View Comment
Ball fails the residents daily when it comes to quality of life, housing issues or anything when you call his office he has no understanding of what constituent service is. Let's please vote him out. View Comment
Yorktown voters are fools to vote for the used salesman. Murphy is technology challenged, he has used the same url for 2 failed campaigns for county legislator, 2 council races and the same photo for 6 years. His website has no info and this shows his lack of communication to constituents since he can't write, doesn't know how to communicate and his campaign literature has typos, he has a ghost writer and his knowledge when it comes to public policy, environmental issues and housing issues does not exist. He's a fraud and is would be better as a used car sales person since that is what he reminds us. This is surely the popular vote and the voters did not look into the no substance candidate that he is.
For someone who is about small businesses it's interesting how his restaurant doesn't buy local, has the worst food in Westchester. View Comment
Who put this women up to run? She's scary. I watched a repeat of her interview on the local tv channel. She had no idea that the office she is running for is two term. Omgosh, as usual the Republican party of Yorktown is a disaster and run by a bunch of unethical people. How does an alleged progressive women become a republican? Is she one of those right for lifers? She lacks any business experience, legislative experience and just has no clue. And, already we have a no clue councilmember and that's Terrence Murphy.
