Murphy Releases 2020 Constituent Casework, Outreach, and Legislative Scorecard
Metrics highlight Murphy’s tireless efforts to deliver results for Central Floridians
WASHINGTON—U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park, Fla., released today a preliminary 2020 scorecard that outlines her efforts to deliver results for Central Floridians. Since taking office, Murphy has made helping Central Florida families a top priority. In addition to her Washington, D.C. office, Murphy has offices in both Orlando and Sanford, which provide residents of Orange and Seminole counties with two convenient options to reach Murphy’s office to request assistance. To date, Murphy’s office has completed more than 2,000 constituent casework requests, returning nearly $4 million to constituents whose money was tied up in government red tape.
Murphy regularly holds in-person town halls and she has held or attended more than 480 outreach events throughout her Central Florida district since 2017. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Murphy has used remote events in order to safely hear her constituents’ views about additional steps Congress can take to respond to this crisis. She has held a series of virtual events during this pandemic, including telelistening sessions for health care workers and educators, telephone and virtual town halls in English and Spanish, virtual seminars, and conference calls for local elected leaders, small businesses, and nonprofits, as well as calls with members of her youth, labor, and faith leaders advisory boards to listen to how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting their communities.
Many Central Floridians choose to submit their views to Murphy in writing. To date, Murphy has responded to nearly 170,000 constituent inquiries regarding pending legislation or other issues affecting their lives.
Murphy is consistently rated one of the most independent and effective Members of Congress. After nearly four years in office, she has spearheaded 37 measures that have become law and another 25 measures that have passed the U.S. House of Representatives. These include her successful efforts to repeal the effective ban on gun violence research and fund this lifesaving research, and most recently her push to enact and expand an employee retention tax credit (ERTC) that would help more than 6 million businesses keep 60 million workers tethered to their jobs and their benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
