Open Mic Captures Mamaroneck Mayor Swearing about Resident

Click image above to hear Mayor’s remarks during Board meeting April 24

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.

The video is seen above with captioning provided by The Mamaroneck Observer.

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.”

Someone posted a compilation video of the Mayor’s reactions four days ago that now has 1,500 views.

Accident or not, he needs to step down if these are his inner thoughts exposed.

Here’s the entire meeting. The comment came just after 2:00 ad the resident who had commented during open session was leaving the room. He was not in the audience or being disruptive – they were engaging him as he left

these kind of uncivil exchanges happen at every BOT meeting when residents come to speak. Our Mayor also unilaterally- without public comment – limited speaking time for residents from 5 to 3 minutes.

Coming from the pro-Censorship Karen that is Amy Siskind, this is rich. Her social media feeds DEMAND the deplatforming of views that dissent from hers, and she demanded segregationist tactics for Christians. She is hate speech personified.

I saw the meeting and it doesn’t matter if you like Ms. Siskind. The comments from the mayor were vulgar and completely unwarranted.

It no apology for calling Robert Stark a Putz. Could be looked upon as antiSemitic

we are only human…and we make mistakes. Those who admit their mistakes and apologize for them, I have respect for…

To say mayor is being disingenuous would be a massive understatement. Repeatedly engaging in that same offensive, dismissive, denigrating, bullying, language, & behavior isn’t genuine, not even a feeble attempt at corrective behavior.

Agreed. He says something similar to VOTERS and your neighbors at every meeting then comes back and apologizes. At some point he needs to address the behavior and stop blaming others or continuing then giving an apology.

Wow not what I thought from the mayor . But then again it’s not easy dealing w multiple ppl and personalities . He made an error and owned up to it .

He makes similar “human error” every meeting,.then apologizes or “acknowledges” it at the next. It’s a pattern not an anomoly.
