To the Editor,
I live in the unincorporated area of the Town of Mamaroneck and fully support Tom Murphy’s appointment to the Town Council. To those who say Murphy may not be appropriate because he is a village resident, I say this sounds like petty politics. It’s obvious from his past service to Mamaroneck that Murphy knows how to get things done. He is a dedicated, hardworking member of our community. Our community—villages and town together—is small. Though there are some separate issues, it is shortsighted to think those who reside in the village and not the town will unfairly represent the area as a whole.
