As a member of the Florida Cabinet’s Legislative Affairs team, he was responsible for the development and passage of the Commission’s annual legislative package.
As Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs for the Florida Department of Corrections, he also worked closely with legislative leadership, Senators and House members to create critical legislation. Other Executive Branch positions he has held included analysis for the Governor’s Office of Policy and Budget, for which he worked closely with legislators on the Governor’s education agenda.
Mr. Murray also worked for former Florida Governor Charlie Crist as a Senior Program Analyst. There, his focus was on energy and climate issues, as well as tracking all federal and state-funded programs to ensure their efficacy.
A former property insurance claims adjuster for Liberty Mutual Group early on in his career, Mr. Murray applies his field experience for Colodny Fass’ many property and casualty insurance company clients.
He is currently working on completing his Master of Public Administration degree from Florida State University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Criminology.
