Murphy lie #1 - “ I’m about integrity, and I’m about – I respect people.” Hell no, he pulled the same bs on Mike Kapowitz when he ran for twice for County Legislator. Name calling, lies and when he lost both times he was classless when it came to congratulating his opponent.
What did he promise and lie to them about to get this endorsement?
Doesn't everyone see what a fraud Murphy is? Same rhetoric every two years so he can run for something. Can't he run back to the chiropractor table. Yorktown residents are sick of him. All the guy does is show up, shake your hand & that's that. He has NO knowledge of environmental laws, zoning, urban planning, public policy...you name it and he has no clue. View Comment
Considering Murphy doesn't do his homework when it comes to coming to a Town Board meeting prepared, I do understand why he is having difficulties with basic math & basic reading. Murphy is no Diane Ravitch and his knowledge of New York's educational system is nilch. Just because someone put these ideas in front of him with a cue card we need more details why he is against Common Core. Murphy needs to tell us what ideas he has and not just show up and make the same comments over and over with no substance. Has Murphy even presented a comprehensive plan to the local school administrators? Or, is he just talking from his behind again? View Comment
Are you saying you would rather vote for the clueless Murphy, who has no knowledge of what a mandate is? Murphy's policies are based on a Wikipedia search, as he has yet to come up with an original idea on his own. We all know he has a behind the scenes ghost writer doing all his social media and giving him cue cards on what to say. View Comment
Murphy pandering again to women voters. He pulled the same bs when he ran for County Legislator and had his sisters, nieces and other female relatives show up and stage a press conference saying he was for women. This is 2014 and if Murphy is to showcase women should get paid more than he should look around the restaurant industry and right in his own kitchen & dining room. What's he paying those waitresses? hmmmmm View Comment
Anyone who normal is hocking a book sits on the couch and pitches the book with Letterman. CBS Executives told Letterman he had to do this so you will see he did it, but you could tell Letterman was not that thrilled. I'm sure Letterman wanted to ask him about the Moreland Commission. View Comment
Who is Murphy's ghost writer for this? There is NO WAY he came up with any of these ideas. "Instead of worrying about picking our state snack, Albany needs to be focused on winning the war on heroin. I'm prepared to bring that focus." this is the dumbest quote ever.
How about better roads, quality of life issues. Hate crime issues, but what do you expect from a candidate who was knocking on doors on Yom Kippur and had no clue it was a Jewish Holiday.
Many years ago the Chamber did a Tour de Yorktown, which was a great event. Then the real estate members took over. The Chamber doesn't care about small businesses, incubator businesses and anything that could be inventive or made in Yorktown. They run this Chamber like it's 1982, with no creative ideas as can be seen by their political choices of who they endorse. View Comment
Diane lost for Highway Supervisors since he lacked the credentials. He now has flipped flopped and is a turn coat, and has become a Republican. "his beliefs are more in line with the Republicans" and what are those? He seems to have failed to tell the Yorktown voters this. If anyone watches the debate between his opponent you will see this guy has no morals and no skills to be a council member.
All we know is he has the biggest sign paid by the local Republicans in the center of town. The Republican party couldn't find a good candidate so they made Diane run for town council, it's that obvious. Just like Murphy who runs for anything every 2 years. View Comment
Murphy has no chance and is desperate. When debating you will see how not articulate he is.
Ask him how in his campaign website how he takes full credit for state funding? This is a big lie
Ask him about natural resources, energy policy - he has no clue.
Ask him about supporting small business and why his family restaurant doesn't buy local produce or meats from NY vendors.
Ask him how he after two failed County Legislator races what qualifies him now to be Senator?
Anyone who's ever attended a Yorktown town board meeting has witness that he comes unprepared, never has written a bill, never has resolved a constituent issue and has no knowledge of public policy, environmental laws, governing, but he can adjust your back. Unfortunately, the Republican party put him up to this and his head is so big that he believes the lies that his and rhetoric that his campaign ppl are writing on his social media pages.
Just because the guy shows up everywhere, shakes your hand and takes a photo with you doesn't mean he's a good candidate. View Comment
Vote for Siegel!! Between Murphy & Diana all they could do is place who's got the biggest sign in the center of town, but adding no substance to their positions on anything. Again, you will see all the quotes from Murphy are written by his ghost writers since he can't utter a single sentence on his own.
Yorktown voters are going to be fooled again by the guy who has no knowledge on public affairs, zoning and small business issues. What's his stance on campaign finance? When you ask him you get a big duh! View Comment
Mr. McVetty, I understand your concern and if there could be a write in candidate maybe it could be you. The issue is Murphy has no understanding of laws and just simple things like zoning and good luck trying to have conversation with him about simple local laws like fences. Just the other night he was speaking in Buchanan when out of his mouth he told the attendees he also specializes in nutrition. Really, then why is the food so awful at Murphys? The guy has no clue to environmental issues, public policy and his "common sense" tea bag rhetoric is so bad. We all know the Republican Party of Yorktown couldn't find any other candidate to run and Murphy's ego was stroked, again so they made him run again. Of course, the most amusing thing of his campaign is that he has said the same thing for everything single race he has run and uses the same photos. View Comment
Let's note that Murphy won't debate his challenger. Let's also note that Murphy will do anything for a photo op so he can post on his social media. Murphy has to be one of the worst candiates the Republicans could find, as proven from his two past failed efforts to run for County Legislator. The guy is walking around with cue cards since he can't articulate a single sentence on his own or come up with any original idea. View Comment
Under his watch he widened the road????? Really? Let's not forget there is a NYDOT where there are qualified engineers & planners who do that type of work for a living. Did his chiropractic skills assist the pavement of the roadways? Now will he will take credit for parting the Hudson River. View Comment
Serafina Mastro forgot to add that she is the chairperson for the local Republican party. So of course she needs to write this type of rhetoric.
What she failed to write about is how Murphy's restaurant does not buy local produce or meats from any of the local farms or Hudson Valley establishments. If you are going to talk about sustainability than look at how Murphy's doesn't purchase even the toilet paper at the restaurant locally. When Murphy goes around town and to others pontificating his same old tired rhetoric which he has used for 2 failed county legislator campaigns he needs to reflect on his own actions, which are fact based that he has done nothing to showcase he has any knowledge of public policy, has never written a bill or read one and has no idea how to interpret building codes or zoning laws. This has been proven if you have watched painfully his time on the board. He is walking around with cue cards from his campaign spokesperson and has his ghost writer doing his social media.
Terrence Murphy is one of the most clueless candidates. Yesterday he was in the rain on Yom Kippur knocking on doors. Can we say he has no clue to other people's religion? Can we say he is really oblivious on so many levels? Some folk were nice enough to just not answer their doors, but really this is offensive on so many levels.
Terrence is a whore when it comes to showing his face at any event. He shakes hands and that's that. Asking him a question about public policy, zoning, environmental issues and he has no clue. The guy has used the same photo and same text for 2 failed elections, he can't talk without bullet points in front of him since he has a ghost writer who is doing his social media for him.
What's more comical is he has taken credit for everything that the entire Yorktown Board approved. His lies are unbelievable on his website and social media where he claims he was able to secure town $$$. If you fact check any of the comments, bullet points you will see ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IS HIGHLY EXAGGERATED ON SO MANY LEVELS. Murphy is the candidate of NO substance, no proven track record which can be shown how cannot utter an articulate sentence on his own at town board meeting.
The guy runs every 2 years for something....he is not qualified to be dog catcher. View Comment
