Dear friends in beautiful Bryson City,
As the mayor of Murphy I want to sincerely thank the Bryson City mayor, council and all citizens for graciously sending Chad Simons our way. I realize you have some big shoes to fill as we did when our town manager, Ann Payne, decided to take her much-deserved retirement after 24 years of excellent service.
Beyond a very long history of being football rivals, Bryson City and Murphy must continue to work together in the best interest of our citizens, business communities and Western North Carolina overall. Murphy¹s door is wide open for collaboration and teaming together on the many opportunities we have ahead.
We look forward to working with everyone in Bryson City, and thank you again for sharing your talent with us.
