Hi Randy,

Some of the information about you that's on the internet (i.e., phone
number, address, etc.) is considered "personal information."  We can't
provide personal information about you even if you're the one asking.

However, we could provide with articles and web pages about Randy
Murray the politician, businessman, etc.   Would that be enough?

William Randolph Murray, Philanthropist:

     The Terry College of Business [at the University of
     Georgia] "proudly recognizes and thanks the many alumni,
     friends and organizations who contribute their support
     to the college and its strategic initiatives."

Running for Insurance Commissioner:

* From Creative Loafing Atlanta (The Weekly Scalawag) regarding
  endorsement by George Equality and a message left on their answering
  machine, 8/21/02,

     "Chances are you haven't heard of W. Randy Murray,
      despite the fact that the AJC has endorsed him in
      the Democratic primary race for state insurance
      commissioner. A former mayor of Toccoa, Murray, 54,
      has made millions in the insurance business and has
      served on numerous state and civic boards."

* A summary of news from the Toccoa City Commission meeting of
  Monday, August 12, 2002, where Commissioner Ken Davis announced
  the Atlanta Journal-Constitution endorced former Toccoa City
  Commissioner Randy Murray for State Insurance Commissioner

* Candidate Electronic Filing Information for Election Year:
  Sepbember 30, 2002 (Georgia Secretary of State)

* Online Athens article, "Two Dems vying for chance to unseat
  Oxendine", dated August 5, 2002,

     "... But before taking on Oxendine, both Lois Cohen
      and William Randy Murray must convince voters in the
      Aug. 20 primary why they are the best option for the
      Democratic Party."


     "Murray, a 54-year-old retired insurance consultant
      from Toccoa, boasts 33 years of experience as an
      independent insurance broker. He also served as the
      mayor of Toccoa from 1987 to 1990. Murray's main issues
      are developing closer scrutiny of the insurance policies
      offered in Georgia, to make sure everyone from business
      owners to boat owners are charged fair rates."

* Final Combined Summary of the DeKalb County General Primary
  and Nonpartison Election 21-Aug-2002 (Randy Murry running
  for Insurance Commissioner)

* Savannah Now, "Two Dems vying for chance to unseat Oxendine"
  August 15, 2002,

     "Murray's main issues are developing closer
      scrutiny of the insurance policies offered in
      Georgia, to make sure everyone from business owners
      to boat owners are charged fair rates.

      Murray also pledges to fight the under-the-table
      discrimination he has seen against groups such as
      blue-collar workers and gays and lesbians.

      He said discriminatory practices of some insurance
      companies should not be tolerated by state officials"

   * Savannah Now endorsing Randy Murray as Insurance Commissioner,
     August 16, 2002,

     "Our choice in the Democratic field is William Randy
      Murray of Toccoa. He's a former mayor of that north
      Georgia community and a retired insurance broker with
      33 years in the business.

      Mr. Murray, 54, believes that state regulators should
      do a better job of making sure that policyholders are
      charged fair rates. Certainly, companies are entitled
      to make a profit. But they shouldn't pad premiums to
      gouge policyholders unnecessarily."

  * Savannah Now Letters to the Editor, August 19, 2002, in
    opposition to endorsement of Randy Murray for Insurance

Georgia Film, Video & Music Advisory Commission

thanks for the help....the creative loafing really jumped me pretty
bad...they were supporting my opponent after they told me they would
endorse me so I called them up and told them I'd rather have the
Baptist vote instead of theirs...I shouldn't have done it but they set
me up and I don't do that toother people....randy

The first thought thta crossed my mind was the one about politics and
strange bedfellows.

I'd agree the remark was most unfortunate.

Better luck next time.

Sereneta...if you read the article ..i'll give you some correc
tions...i didn't call them they called me...they werre already
supporting my oppponent prior to that at the request of a man Michael
Coles who was a Senatorial Canadidate two years prior and had their
support..they loved him, you can guess why....they told me at the
interview it wasn't necessary to go to the other 22 organizations in
Atlanta or Savannah as they represented the political views of all the
organizatins only to have them endorse her and use the reason as she
visited all the different organizations during the campaign...the
whole thing was a setup and I fell for the part about using
homosexuality as a way to campaign and garner the right wing v otes is
bull...not a word of truth to it...the man lied thru his teeth...after
they got that free paper in atlanta to publish that crap they emailed
tens of thousands of gays and told them some of the most outlandish
things, all of which were their theories on me which were
fact I was the first legitimate candidate to run for state wide office
that made part of the campaign the fact that I would like to stop the
discrimination by insurance companies against gays.  this didn't
matter to them, they had made up their minds opponent
lost by a landslide in general election which we all know would
happen...she had no qualifications and never stood a chance...its a
shame when a man like myself spends thirty years in public
service...non paid public service...and has one little sob ruin it for
him...ironically, my sister is gay, the family accepts it and loves
her just as much.....Randyh Murray
