** Mayor Murphy Resigns **
After twelve years of service to the Borough of Edgeworth Mayor Wayne Murphy has decided to resign from his post as Mayor. Mayor Murphy succeeded Mayor McGinnis in 2005 and has cherished the opportunity to serve the residents of the Borough over the past decade. Mayor Murphy stated that one of his favorite aspects of serving the Borough was to be there to listen to residents’ concerns and to be a role model for children in the community. While serving as Mayor, Mr. Murphy has been an instrumental member of the community, serving on the boards of the Sewickley Public Library, the Sweetwater Center, and the Sewickley Presbyterian Church. We send the Mayor well wishes and hope for happiness and prosperity in this next chapter of his life. Thank you, Mayor Murphy!
