Murphy offers unique representation
Tuesday, October 9, 2018
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.
