Newly elected Rep. Amanda Murphy opens office in New Port Richey

NEW PORT RICHEY — State Rep. Amanda Murphy has opened her district office in Mike Fasano's old office on Massachusetts Avenue west of Little Road.

The House District 36 representative, who won a special election after Fasano resigned to become Pasco's tax collector, had to wait three weeks before opening the office.

It took that long to get the Oct. 15 election results certified, hire a district secretary, buy office furniture and equipment and get the phones turned on, said Murphy's legislative aide, Brian Goff.

Said Murphy: "Taking (Representative) Fasano's old office was the best thing I could do to help make that transition seamless for my constituents. Now they can go to the same place or call the same phone numbers to get help with anything they need."

The office is located at 8217 Massachusetts Ave. Call (727) 848-5885 for more information.
