Murphy his support (it's so reassuring that our city is being
governed by people who have their priorities straight).
You have to ask?
Stacey Murphy should step aside at least until her guilt or
innocence has been determined. It's too much of a distraction for her

steadfastness and dedication she has for helping her fellow man. I
also witnessed how she put her heart and soul into this noble event
that was raising money for the children of Burbank. Fortunately for
us, she also volunteered to lend a hand at many more events for the
