"John Murtagh is the kind of conservative reformer Yonkers needs," said Astorino, who made the endorsement with Murtagh present at 11:30 AM today at Cook Field on Cook Avenue in Yonkers.
Astorino, who was elected in a major upset two years ago, added, "Taxpayers have cut corners and made sacrifices to get their families through the current economy, and they want a Mayor like John Murtagh, who will force city government to live within its means."
Astorino applauded Murtagh for his pro-taxpayer record, noting, "John Murtagh set the right tone on day one as a city councilman when he refused a "free" city car. As Mayor, John Murtagh will bring commonsense solutions to the problems facing Yonkers. He's tough, he's fair, and he knows how to get things done. I look forward to working with him as your next mayor."
