Democratic challenger goes toe to toe with Hempstead Town supervisor

Supervisor Murray makes no apology for the mass mailings and says it?s about keeping residents informed about what impacts their wallets. However, Murray questions Levinson's use of his taxpayer funded government Web site.
Levinson says he will probably spend $500,000 to unseat Murray. Murray says she will do whatever it takes to keep her job.
