Carol Murphy named to national post

Assembly Majority Whip Carol Murphy (D-Mount Laurel) too office today as a director of the National Foundation for Women Legislators, an organization that was once run by another Burlington County lawmaker, former State Sen. Diane Allen (R-Edgewater Park).

“The important ability to collaborate with women elected to office across the country has helped me be a better lawmaker as we share approaches and engage in a powerful exchange of ideas that is only possible by blurring the often complicated partisanship that is naturally present,” said Murphy. “The ability to work together and problem solve is the cornerstone of our democracy at its core and these friendships provide the foundation for making government work more effectively.”

The bi-partisan group represents roughly 5,000 women elected officials from across the nation.

A three-term assemblywoman described by the Burlington County Times as “The Bear” for her vociferous representation of local issues, Murphy has emerged as a national thought leader among state legislators.  She serves on the executive committee of the National Conference of State Legislature’s and as the national co-chair of the American Irish State Legislators Caucus.

“I’m so honored to be selected by my peers and look forward to our work ahead to advance public policy ideas that will make a positive difference for our nation,” Murphy said.
