President Murphy to take Council committee seats
“In the wake of the sudden and tragic passing of Alderman Dudzik, until further notice I will assume the seats on the Public Safety and Finance and Personnel committees that he very ably held.”
Common Council President Michael J. Murphy announced today that he will assume two Common Council committee seats held by Alderman Joe Dudzik, who passed away on May 22 in a motorcycle accident.
“In the wake of the sudden and tragic passing of Alderman Dudzik, until further notice I will assume the seats on the Public Safety and Finance and Personnel committees that he very ably held,” President Murphy said.
President Murphy, chair of the Steering and Rules Committee, was the longtime chair of the Finance and Personnel Committee prior to his election to Council president in early 2014.
The longest serving current Council member, President Murphy was first elected to the Council in 1989 and has served on every Council standing committee during his career.
