Political Action Committee (CPRM-PAC), a bipartisan group, is to
support progress through managed growth, responsible development, and
continue to support elected officials who are respectful of and listen
to the voices of the citizens of Murrysville. Given the fact that our

citizens of our community. Half of the governing body of the CPRM-PAC
