Amanda Murphy won a narrow victory in Tuesday’s special election over Republican Bill Gunter. She will replace longtime legislator Mike Fasano, who resigned earlier this year to become Pasco County tax collector after 19 years representing west Pasco voters.
“I hope they see no difference with me taking the helm,” Murphy said. “I hope they feel as much love from me as they felt from Mike Fasano. I want to keep up his tradition of constituent services — otherwise I’ll be in trouble.”
