NORTH SALEM, N.Y. -- When it comes to the 40th Senate District, Republican voters seem most concerned with protecting their 2nd Amendment Rights.

The NY Safe Act was one of the many issues discussed Wednesday night at the North Salem Ambulance Corps during a debate hosted by the North Salem Tea Party between Bob Castelli and Terrence Murphy, who are running for the Republican primary. Justin Wagner is running on the Democratic side for the seat held by Greg Ball.

"New York is upside down," Murphy said. "We have the highest property taxes and we are  the least business friendly state. That's a recipe for disaster. We have lost 400,000 jobs in the last three years."

Murphy was critical of the Start Up New York spending $200 million to run ads in New York. 

Castelli said the state needs to offer more incentives for businesses to stay and grow in New York,

"The state is going to hell in a hand basket," Castelli said.

Castelli proposed lowering taxes and deregulation to get more businesses to come to New York.

Murphy and Castelli were both critical of the New York Safe Act and both vowed to protect the 2nd Amendment.

"Overnight law abiding citizens became criminals," Murphy said. "You don't pass a bill at 2 a.m. That's like passing Obamacare."

Castelli,  who was a state trooper, said he was a competitive shooter and the NY Safe Act would not have prevented an incident like the Sandy Hook shooting.

"I debated the 2nd Amendment on the floor of the assembly," Castelli said. "I have a proven track record. You cannot legislate against insanity. That law would not have saved a single life."

Dick Lyman, supervisor of Pound Ridge, asked what they would do about mandate relief. Castelli said in the assembly he attempted to pass mandate relief legislation but was unsuccessful. Murphy criticized how unfunded mandates are onerous on small businesses and on municipal governments. 

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

Murphy is a babbling idiot. Flip flopper with no knowledge of environmental laws, zoning rules or regulations and the Republican party had nobody to run for the seat so again they sent him and his big ego running for Senate. What's amazing is that he has run for County Legislator twice and over the past now 4 campaigns he has he talks the same bullet points and that's it. He's been a failure on the town board and basically all he does is go to local sports games and shake people hands. There definitely is a behind the scenes ghost writer like he has had in his past campaigns since he's not that articulate on the issues. My favorite lately is all the Murphy signs posted everywhere that are not recyclable. Yorktown must find better candidates.
