Best Public Information Officer

Marcia Murphy

Two years ago, Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Marcia Murphy won her office’s “Employee of the Year” award, recognizing her “professionalism, dedication, and comprehensive knowledge in [her] area of expertise.” It was well deserved. Murphy knows the boundaries of public information, which require delicate respect when prosecuting federal crimes, and she hews to them with clarity. In an era when government too often conducts itself with brash arrogance in its rush to improperly keep secrets, Murphy stands out because she gives the public what its entitled to, and is respectful and prompt in doing so. We wish there were more of her kind working in government press offices.
