Rick Murphy, Chief of Staff to Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), was the U.S. Capitol Historical Society’s (USCHS) honored guest at the annual Congressional Staff event on September 16. Murphy joined members of the USCHS Constitution Signers and Leadership Council for lunch in Express Scripts’ lovely space overlooking the Capitol. Murphy provided sincere and thoughtful remarks on his commitment to public service, including to Senator Ayotte’s constituents and to the Senator herself.
Murphy’s comments made Society staff recall the Honorable Lee Hamilton’s keynote address at our 2003 dinner honoring the Staff Directors of the Committees of the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Hamilton said, “Your public service gives you a stimulating, proud and lively career…I hope you feel that by working in the Congress you are given the unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people and the great affairs of this nation.”
USCHS wishes to thank Express Scripts for generously hosting and exclusively supporting this event.
