McMurray provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Snohomish County:[4]

"Our children represent the hope of the future and few things support the hope we have for our children more than a quality education. As the current president of the Edmonds School Board, I am honored to represent this community and contribute to the strength of public education. For almost 25 years, I have worked as a room mom, parent group president, booster president and as a member of the District's Citizen Planning Committee. On the school board since 2005, I am proud of the academic achievements of our students, the professionalism of our teachers, the dedication of our support staff and the exceptional financial support of this community. Going forward, my goals are to maintain the financial strength and integrity of the District, continue to emphasize improvements that directly affect the student in the classroom and provide opportunity for strategic professional development. All of these together will help our students remain in school and remain committed to their educational goals, as their diplomas become a springboard to a productive, engaged adulthood. I ask you to join my fellow board members who all support my continuation on the board. Your vote is important; thank you for your consideration."
