WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – The National Federation of Independent Businesses has officially endorsed Terrence Murphy’s candidacy for the state Senate.
"As a small-business owner, Terrence Murphy understands the significant and complex challenges facing small businesses in New York,” Mike Durant, NFIB-NY director, said in a recent news release.
“Terrence (will) fight to reduce taxes, cut unnecessary red tape and bring real work experience to the state Senate. Simply, Terrence Murphy is the only choice for small business in this race."
Murphy, a Yorktown councilman, is the Republican candidate in the 40th Senate District. Democrat Justin Wagner is Murphy’s opponent. The current 40th District senator, Republican Greg Ball, declined to run for re-election.
The 40th District encompasses portions of Putnam and Dutchess counties along with the Westchester communities of Armonk, Bedford, Briarcliff, Chappaqua, Cortlandt, Lewisboro, Mount Pleasant, Mount Kisco, North Salem, Peekskill, Pleasantville, Pound Ridge, Somers and Yorktown.
"As a small-business owner, it is an honor to have the support of the NFIB," Murphy said in a press release.
"I am proud of my record, which includes ushering in $250 million in economic growth and job creation. I look forward to bringing that record to Albany and to stand as the voice for my fellow business owners in the Senate."
