Moderate Orangetown Dem seeks to replace moderate Orangetown Rep. in County Legislature

A Democratic candidate has emerged for the legislature seat of long longtime county officeholder Legislator John Murphy (D), who is believed to be retiring this year after over four decades of service.

Numerous unimpeachable sources have told the Rockland County Times that 2013 Orangetown tax receiver candidate Chris Smith (D), 34-years-old, has thrown his hat in the ring and is considered the favorite to take the Democratic nomination.
