Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy has apologized for making a disparaging remark on a hot microphone to a constituent during the Village Board Meeting April 24.
“Please stop talking from the audience..Jesus, muzzle that motherfucker,” Murphy is heard saying.
The remark was reportedly directed at a resident who had been critical of the mayor. Earlier in the meeting, Murphy praised a resolution against bullying of Village staff.

Murphy later writes on Facebook, “Apparently at the last Board meeting when people were yelling from the audience and interrupting the meeting I got very frustrated and said something very inappropriate. I honestly don’t remember saying it but I have seen the tape and I said it under my breath. There was a no excuse for what I said and I sincerely apologize to the community for my rude and extremely impolite remarks.”
