Critics seek to stifle Lexington-Richland 5’s Murphy

A group of Lexington-Richland 5 residents is seeking to end school board member Kim Murphy’s challenges that are delaying $45 million in improvements at Chapin High.
Chapin High student body president Maggie Stroud heads a group that has gone to court seeking to force Murphy to end her appeals of a plan to fill in a stream to expand the school. Group members are not identified in the lawsuit.
Their challenge contends that Murphy is overstepping her authority as a board member and is seeking to thwart renovations approved by voters in a 2008 referendum, a plan she opposed.
School officials say the stream is a ditch. Murphy says it is the headwaters of area creeks.Tim Flach
