It amazes me that anyone can think that Murphy is doing a good job. I am a republican and have always voted republican, but I am voting for Jen Falk so that we can hopefully prevent another 4 years of Murphy's circle talk as the quality of our schools wane. GCPS wastes so much money on Admin Expenses and Wilbanks bloated salary while our kids sit in overcrowded schools and our teachers haven't seen a raise in 4 years.
