For our next edition of The Membership Spotlight, Franklin County Young Democrats is proud to present long time member and local attorney Mallory Murphy. Mallory exemplifies not only the progressive values that exist within our membership but also the strong personal drive to improve the lives of our neighbors and communities here in central Ohio.
A native of Painesville (outside Cleveland), Mallory first got her taste for politics through her mother. As a young girl she was exposed to many of the intricate workings of local elections due to her mother’s work with the Board of Elections. These experiences in her early years sparked a passion and drive which eventually led her to pursue a degree of Political Science at The Ohio State University and a law degree from Capital University.
Since moving to central Ohio, Mallory has been greatly involved in local politics and elections. She first got her start in 2006 as a campaign intern for John Patrick Carney. Since then, she has served in various other campaigns as well as spending time working for the Ohio Secretary of State.
For the past 3 years, Mallory has been dedicated to building her own law firm, which has a strong focus in election law as well as personal injury. She said at first it was a scary move, but going out on her own has helped to fulfill the independence and freedom she was searching for as well as has providing a great deal of personal fulfillment.
