MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Democrats Tom Murphy of Mamaroneck and Catherine Parker of Rye will debate Wednesday as they both seek the Democratic nomination for a seat on the Westchester County Board of Legislators.
Murphy and Parker are campaigning for the nomination to replace Judith Myers as the legislator for District 7, which includes Mamaroneck, Rye, Larchmont, and portions of Harrison and New Rochelle. Myers, who served four terms, announced in May that she will not seek re-election.
The debate is hosted by the League of Women Voters of Larchmont-Mamaroneck and will be held at 7:30 p.m., in the courtroom of Mamaroneck Town Center, 740 W. Boston Post Road.
The candidates will discuss their qualifications for the position and answer questions posed by the LWV and members of the audience.
Parker has served two terms on the Rye City Council after first being elected in 2007. She is the former president of the Rye Chamber of Commerce and the owner of the travel store Parkers in downtown Rye.
Murphy served on the Mamaroneck Board of Trustees for six years before stepping down in 2009 for personal reasons. He was also a member of the Washingtonville Housing Alliance, and advocated for affordable housing.
Registered Democrats will choose between the two candidates in a primary election on Sept. 10. The winner of the primary will face Republican John Verni of New Rochelle in the November general election.
