Kathleen Murphy was a 2013 Democratic candidate for District 34 of the Virginia House of Delegates.


Murphy received a B.A. from American University.[1] She was a Senior Adviser in the U.S. Department of Commerce and a former aide to Congressman Charlie Wilson. Murphy was involved in the creation of Salute Our Services and Kids Serve Too. She is currently the President of consulting firm Johnson Murphy & Associates.[2]


Campaign Themes


Murphy's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Education for the 21st Century Economy

"I will make sure our schools have the funding, staff, and commitment to excellence we demand as a community. Now is the time to invest in our future. We must ensure that our Community Colleges are partnering with local business to ensure that the education our children receive will lead to jobs."

  • Protecting Women's Rights

"I support issues important to ensuring women’s equality: equal pay, workplace flexibility, and the right to make the important choices about their own bodies and access to prescriptive medications. We must realize that women’s issues are about so much more than just health care, rather they are economic issues. Limiting women’s rights and access to health care will not only hurt women, but will also hurt our state economically."

  • Transportation

"I will fight for a permanent funding source for transportation in the budget and end the game of pitting our children’s future against the infrastructure we desperately need."

  • Protecting the Virginia Voter

"Five hour long lines, broken voting machines, vague ID laws, and loss of absentee ballots are just some of the problems our voters encountered in 2012. Additionally the Republican party in Richmond is eager to gerrymander much of the state to give themselves a permanent hold on the State House and mute the voice of our voters. I will fight to improve the process of our elections so that the voice of our people is heard."

  • Protecting Our Children

"I support President Obama’s initiative to make our streets, schools, and homes safer through common sense gun regulation. The gun show loophole, which allows people to purchase firearms with no background check, must be closed. We must institute universal background checks for all firearm sales."
