Pickets Fence in Murphy's House

Village of Mamaroneck Trustee Tom Murphy (top left), sitting on the front steps of his house on Prospect Avenue on June 23, as Rye Neck resident Jerry O'Donnell (middle right) led Washingtonville residents, plus Irving Scharf of Richbell Road (bottom left), in picketing Murphy's home. The demonstrators allege that Murphy supported the establishment by the Hispanic Resource Center of a day laborers' hiring site at the Strait Gate Church in their neighborhood, even though the HRC contracted privately with the church to set up a Workers Center, an arrangement proposed by Straight Gate's minister morethan a year ago.
