Assemblywoman Carol Murphy is in the midst of her first term as a member of the NJ State legislature, but came to the job more experienced than most freshmen lawmakers, as she had previously served as a trusted and very well-respected staffer to both Senator Linda Greenstein and Assemblywoman Gabby Mosquera. She tells us about how she drew inspiration from her job as a staffer to decide to run for office, and how her years of working for two lawmakers prepared her for the job. She also shares how her late father's service in the United States Army impacts her decision-making as a lawmaker each and every day. 
We recorded this podcast on March 26th, one day after the push to legalize marijuana failed in the Senate. The Assemblywoman tells us why, in her opinion, the bill stalled in the legislature, and where we go from here. And, as a member of the Assembly Budget committee, she expresses that she actually loves the budget-making process, and enjoys the many hearings and discussions that are part of the job. 
Assemblywoman Murphy projects an infectious enthusiasm for her role in representing her constituents in Burlington County, and truly loves serving in the Assembly. However, I ask her if she has any further aspirations beyond her current position, and you'll just have to listen to how she answers that question.
