Quincy Murphy, who died Aug. 2, honorably served Augusta as a state representative for 11 years. He was a pillar of the community. He was a successful businessman. He cared about the youth. He officiated Richmond County high-school football and basketball games for nearly 40 years. He was a devoted husband and father, and a loyal friend to many. Quincy Murphy was a great man.
Throughout the centuries it has been said that behind every great man is a great woman. It was true with Quincy Murphy. Dianne Murphy was that woman. She was the devoted wife, trusted confidant and source of inspiration that enabled Quincy Murphy to be the focused, tireless public servant.
Now, Dianne desires to wear the mantle of public servant to carry on the work of representing the voters of Georgia House District 127. She is running to fill the seat vacated by her beloved, late husband.
Dianne is capable. She has what it takes to provide the same high level of quality service the voters of District 127 have become accustomed to receiving. She has the character, integrity, education and skill set to be the consummate legislator and advocate for the residents of Augusta.
In November, the voters of District 127 can feel confident of passing the torch to a true public servant by electing Dianne Murphy.
