RAPID CITY, SD - Most city council elections don't attract much attention. But the race to fill a vacant city council seat in Rapid City is in the spotlight.
One of the candidates in the race is Marla Murphy. If that name sounds familiar, this isn't the first time that Murphy has been in the public spotlight. She served on the city council from 2000 to 2005 as Tom Murphy. After news of her transition became public, she left office. Now she hopes that people's attitudes have changed.
When a seat on the city council of Rapid City opened up after Sam Kooiker became mayor, Marla Murphy decided to throw her hat in the ring.
