State Senate Candidate Murphy Says NY Needs To Be More Business Friendly

YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Terrence Murphy, who is the Republican candidate in the 40th District of the State Senate, said creating a more business friendly environment will keep taxes down.

"I would keep taxes low in Albany by creating a business environment," Murphy said. "New York State is ranked dead last in the United States of America."

Murphy, in a video interview with Daily Voice , said New York has lost close to 400,000 people in the last three years because they cannot afford to live in the state anymore.

"That is unacceptable," Murphy, a Yorktown councilman, said. "We need to increase the commercial tax base."

Murphy is opposing Democrat Justin Wagner. Greg Ball, the current senator, declined to run for re-election.

The 40th Senate District covers Pleasantville, Chappaqua, Mount Kisco, Bedford, Pound Ridge, Lewisboro, North Salem, Yorktown, Somers, Cortlandt, Mount Pleasant, Peekskill and parts of Putnam County.
