Former Wake County Rep. Tom Murry lost his District 41 seat to Gale Adcock in November but we haven’t seen the last of this tenacious public servant.

Murry has been named Chief Legal Counsel for Governmental Affairs by the North Carolina Judicial Branch, the director of the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts announced Friday. In his new role, Murry will assist director John W. Smith and Chief Justice Mark Martin in coordinating legislative efforts and governmental affairs, starting Monday.

Murry, who served two terms in the House and co-chaired the Appropriations Subcommittee in 2014, will coordinate all legislative activities for the Judicial Branch and will work with legislative leaders and court system stakeholders in order to promote consensus on critical funding needs, an N.C. Judicial Branch press release states. The Appropriations Subcommittee developed budgets for DENR, the Commerce Department and the Departments of Agriculture and Labor.

“The director and I look forward to working with Tom, as he comes to the Judicial Branch with a wealth of experience and understanding of legal and policy issues,” Chief Justice Mark Martin said. “Tom also has great experience in the North Carolina Legislature and he will continue to serve the state well as the Judicial Branch moves through challenging times.”
