Shelley Mayer and Frank Murtha

Last Wednesday’s League of Women Voters forum between state Sen. Shelley Mayer and Frank Murtha was the final LWV forum involving candidates who will appear on the ballot in Bedford, Lewisboro or Pound Ridge.

These two candidates will appear on ballots only in Pound Ridge. That’s because the 37th Senate District, which Ms. Mayer currently represents, has been shifted, and will now include Pound Ridge instead of Bedford. So, though Ms. Mayer, the Democratic and Working Families nominee and a Yonkers resident, is the incumbent, she has not represented Pound Ridge before. Mr. Murtha, of Scarsdale, is the Republican nominee and challenger for the seat.
