One word to describe Morgan Murtaugh? Dynamic.

A lifelong San Diegan, Morgan has been actively involved in local and national politics, and in our community, for more than 10 years.

After graduating from the Academy of Our Lady of Peace in North Park, Morgan attended Grossmont College in El Cajon, while working for Commander, Naval Air Forces as Assistant Protocol Officer. Morgan later began working in San Diego County politics, first for Congressman Brian Bilbray and later for La Mesa mayor, Art Madrid.

After leaving Grossmont, Morgan attended The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., paying her way through college by working in retail. In Washington, Morgan continued to build an impressive resume with jobs on Capitol Hill, as a fellow at the Young America's Foundation National Journalism Program.

Having returned home to her native San Diego, Morgan is currently an on-air political commentator for One America News Network. Tired of career politicians who are only concerned about the next election, she is now running for CA-53 in order to represent her friends, family and neighbors in Washington.

"I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you because if elected, I'll be sent to Washington to represent you and nothing else."
