Members of "Team Murray" - Supervisor Kate Murray, Councilwoman Angie Cullin, and Councilmen James Darcy and Ed Ambrosino - each received the official endorsements of the Nassau County Republican, Conservative and Independence Parties, giving them each three potent party lines in the upcoming November election. What's more, the endorsement of three major parties recognizes the team's tax-freeze agenda, sensible budgeting practices, top Wall Street credit ratings and successful efforts to stimulate the economy and improve the local quality of life.

"I am so grateful to the Nassau Republican, Conservative and Independence Parties for awarding us their support in this year's election," said Murray. "I would especially like to thank Nassau Republican Chairman Joseph Mondello, Conservative Party Chairman Daniel F. Donovan, Jr. and Nassau Independence Party Executive Chairman Rick Bellando for believing in our team."

The three parties have recognized "Team Murray's" commitment to limiting spending and holding the lines on taxes while providing top-notch programs and services for residents of the Town of Hempstead. Supervisor Murray has vowed to freeze taxes in Hempstead Town's 2012 budget. "Team Murray" has embraced goals of efficient government and preserving the suburban quality-of-life experience, dovetailing with the beliefs of Nassau Republican, Conservative and Independence Party members. In addition, all three parties' members have expressed strong support for "Team Murray's" aggressive economic agenda. The team has approved a $50 million "Improve Hempstead" capital program, funding road improvements and a new recreation building for children with special needs. While enhancing the township, the program will fund needed jobs. Further, the Town Board approved three major development projects that are pumping well over $100 million into the economy while creating thousands of jobs.

The fiscally conservative agenda of "Team Murray" has been recognized by Wall Street, which resulted in Hempstead Town receiving the highest credit ratings available. This allows the town to borrow money and refinance debt at lower interest rates, helping to save taxpayers money. This rating is proof that Supervisor Murray, Councilwoman Cullin and Councilmen Darcy and Ambrosino are taking the town in the right direction.

"'Team Murray' knows what it takes to provide for our residents and to create a brighter future here in the Town of Hempstead, and we know how to do it in the most fiscally prudent way possible," said Murray. "It is certainly an honor to know that our work has been recognized by the highly respected Nassau County Republican, Conservative and Independence Parties."
