A Bucks County native and former Under Secretary of the Army has been selected to a new position in the Pennsylvania government.
Patrick J. Murphy, the former United States Under Secretary of the Army and a Bristol native, was recently named Chairman of Governor-Elect Josh Shapiro’s Law Enforcement, Emergency Preparedness, & Community Safety Policy team.
The former Congressman will be responsible for collaborating with the Governor-Elect’s Transition Team on establishing policy for the incoming administration.
“It’s an honor to serve the people of Pennsylvania as the Chairman of Governor-Elect Shapiro’s public safety committee,” Murphy said. “The Governor-Elect and I share a commitment to public safety – it’s one of the core functions of government.”
“I’ve known Governor-Elect Shapiro since I came back from Iraq, where I prosecuted terrorists, and trust in his plans for making Pennsylvania a safer place. I look forward to getting to work.”
