(JACKSONVILLE, NC)- The recently elected Congressman Dr. Greg Murphy (R) was sworn into office just twelve days ago on Sept. 17, 2019 after nearly eight-months of ENC without representation in Washington. Since the former N.C. House Rep has transitioned from state leadership into a federal leader in the U.S. House of Representatives as a Congressman, he has returned to ENC a number of times, living up to his mission of being “available” to get to work for the people in the district.
Since being elected and sworn into office, he’s listened to a number of ENC concerns around the district head-on, from lack of swift hurricane relief, challenges that ENC farmers are facing, regulatory matters, the opioid epidemic as well as a the impacts of increased numbers in foster care.
Last week, on Sept. 24th Congressman Murphy was aboard Camp Lejeune with Defense Secretary Mark Esper who was touring and surveying damages that have lingered since Hurricane Florence.
Sept. 28th Murphy was in Kinston, in a round-table discussion with community stakeholders to address concerns and partner in creating solutions.
Congressman Murphy succeeded in four challenging elections in just 10 short months to fulfill the remainder of the term of the late Walter B. Jones Jr. with a vision of being an available and constituent-driven lawmaker.
