***UPDATED BELOW with response from Marie Murray Martin***

In a social blitz last week, Marie Murray Martin announced her candidacy for the District 1 seat on the Broward County School Board. The District 1 seat is currently occupied by Ann Murray who is not seeking re-election next year. In a Youtube video, Ms. Martin discusses her background as an education reporter and a Broward school teacher. But she leaves one important detail off her resume. Marie Murray Martin is the daughter of Ann Murray.

No pictures of Ann Murray on the Marie Murray Martin website.

No pictures of Ann Murray on the Marie Murray Martin Facebook page.

No mention of Ann Murray at all on either website.

REDBROWARD asked Marie Murray Martin if she was hiding her famous mom from Broward voters.

Martin wrote:

In response to your question, in the past several weeks, I have been to several public events with my mother and we’ve been very transparent about her not seeking re-election and my announcement. On Memorial Day weekend, we met with constituents at Montella Park and told them about my announcement and that I was seeking my mother’s seat. Again, we recently attended The Latino Vote Forum and the MSA graduation and announced my candidacy and that I was seeking my mother’s seat. When I put my press release tab on my website, more will be posted about her not seeking re-election and my announcement. I filed on May 14, 2021 and my website went up on June 2, 2021. So we are still working on my bio, platform and other tabs for the website.
