Murphy offers unique representation

The people of our community have the opportunity to support a man of extraordinary talent and desire: Dr. Greg Murphy.

As a beginner to politics in 2016, he distinguished himself immediately as a man of conscience and deliberation. As the only physician in the North Carolina legislature, Murphy championed the state’s fight against the opioid epidemic by authoring “The Stop Act” and “The Hope Act.” These two landmark laws, coupled with “The Good Samaritan Law,” compelled life saving results in the North Carolina opioid epidemic and clearly demonstrated his pragmatic concern for policy that affects people’s lives, rather than patrician politics.

As a practicing physician Murphy has operated a small business for 25 years while caring for thousands of patients in eastern North Carolina. His accessibility, dedication, medical acumen and strong work ethic clearly identified him, to both Democrat and Republican colleagues, as the legislative “go-to guy” for advice and counsel on the welfare of our citizens. His relentless efforts to support East Carolina University, as well as all of his Pitt County constituents, solidified his resounding reputation with the men and women of the legislature, and the people of eastern North Carolina.

Murphy’s family has a legacy of dedication to country. His great-grandparents and grandparents served with distinction in World War I and World War II, respectively. His Greenville surgical practice (Eastern Urological Associates) provides essential support to many of our eastern North Carolina residents.

The Pitt County community and state health care needs continue to grow in complexity, diversity and challenge. We cannot afford to lose this unique and special resource. We must reelect Dr. Greg Murphy to the North Carolina House of Representatives.

The election on Nov. 6 may be the most important one of our times.

Our president has exploited the politics of division, not for the betterment of our country, but for his personal gain and power. He believes the Justice Department and our court system should always do his bidding, rather than…

The 2018 elections are fast approaching on Nov. 6.  Paula Dance, candidate for the Pitt County sheriff, certainly offers positive experiences and a dedication that is unwavering.

New rules on the use of public spaces proposed by the Trump administration and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke pose a grave danger to this country's most precious free speech rights and must be stopped. The public comment period for the regulations ends Oct. 15 and people around the country are…

As a 20-year citizen of the town of Grifton, I want to personally thank the staff of The Daily Reflector for being a voice for the people of Grifton as well as others in the area affected by the low-lying location in which Duke Energy chose for its electric substation.

I hope and pray with the…

This year as many voters go to the polls to elect officials, we search for criteria to validate our vote. What qualities should we value most and which candidates possess those qualities? Scripture provides timeless qualities in Deuteronomy 1:13, “Choose wise, understanding and…

Ah, the Republicans. In 1987, Ronald Reagan promptly withdrew Douglas Ginsburg’s Supreme Court nomination merely because he had smoked pot as a young man.

But no such problem for Brett Kavanaugh. Instead, our presidential “p.... grabber in chief” regaled his unhinged base by…

I just could not let the recent back-to-back letters using Christ and God references in support of Kavanaugh and the Republicans slide by. 

As for Kavanaugh, he flatly stated that the devil's triangle he referred to is a drinking game. It is not, it is a three-way sex act. He said that boofing…

A widely anticipated textbook, "Universal Economics," has just been published by Liberty Fund. Its authors are two noted UCLA economists, the late Armen A. Alchian and William R. Allen. Editor Jerry L. Jordan was their student and later became a member of President Ronald Reagan's Council of…

America is experiencing some extremely polarizing times. No matter if you are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or independent, the only things that our various political parties seem to be able to agree on is that they can’t seem to agree on anything. This has left so many individuals…
