Murphy Wins Independence Line Over Kaplowitz

This article has been updated to include comments from Mike Kaplowitz.

YORKTOWN, N.Y.-- Terrence Murphy (R, C, I), Yorktown Councilman and candidate for Westchester County Legislator district 4 is officially the Independence party candidate for the November election.

The results for the primary which took place on September 13 were not immediately available, and now with write-ins counted, Murphy secured the independence line with 83 write-in votes over incumdent Mike Kaplowitz 's (D) 72. 10 votes were counted as irregular, out of the 165 that were cast.

"This was for the people of Northwestern Westchester, so they can have an independent voice," Murphy said Thursday. "They came out to vote and they said they wanted change, and they want someone who's going to represent them and be an independent thinker."

Kaplowitz said the primary election meant nothing in the scheme of the election.

"It was an 11 vote difference," he said. "It means nothing. We’re both on the ballot in November, we both have our own line on the ballot, and the election will be decided by the voters."
