With her son in her arms, newly-elected Whitpain supervisor Melissa Murphy-Weber was sworn into office by Judge Thomas Delricci at the onset of Tuesday night's Whitpain Board of Supervisors meeting.
"She has a keen intellect, unbelievable work ethic, and an ethical compass that is second to none," said Delricci. "I commend her for her work as [a prosecutor], I've seen her work as an attorney, and it is indeed my honor tonight to swear in [Melissa Murphy-Weber]."
Murphy-Weber brings more than a decade's worth of varying public service experience with her, including a six-year stint as an Assistant District Attorney in Montgomery County as well as a term as a Pennsylvania State Representative.
She is currently an attorney with the Elliott Greenleaf and Siedzikowski firm, located in Blue Bell.
In addition to being sworn in as a township supervisor, Murphy-Weber was also named assistant secretary of the board. The rest of the board's position remain unchanged from last year, with Joseph Palmer serving as chairman, Frederick Conner serving as vice-chairman, Tony Greco serving as secretary and Adam Zucker serving as treasurer.
Both Karen Guerra and Warren Barnhart were also sworn in as Whitpain Township auditors.
