3 CITIES AC KXXO (MIXX 96)/OLYMPIA, WA morning man R.P. MCMURPHY is running for a seat on the PUYALLUP City Council, but voters looking to support the broadcaster will have to look for him under his real name, KENT BOYLE.
MCMURPHY/BOYLE told the TACOMA NEWS TRIBUNE that he tries "to stay as community-involved as I can and in the past I’ve had a lot of limited time to do that. Over the past five or six years I’ve gotten some available time, so I’ve thrown myself into some projects throughout the city."
He plans to run against two other rookie candidates in the AUGUST 18th primary for the District 3, Position 2 seat and will fund his own campaign.
