In information submitted to Ballotpedia, Murphy said, "I'm running for State Representative to deliver a fresh approach & new ideas to move our region forward and to provide leadership in Frankfort to:
- 1. Heal the wounds of the prescription drug abuse epidemic.
- 2. Create high-wage, high-skill, 21st century jobs in our region.
- 3. Expand resources for quality public education.
Our communities have stood stagnant for too long and without the proper leadership in Frankfort, we will continue to fall further beyond. I'm offering the leadership to finally move us into the 21st century and make our communities successful once again."
