Meet New Trustee Lincoln Murphy
Lincoln ("Linc") Murphy resides on Birchwood Ct. with his wife, Susan, and their golden retriever, Danny Boy. Linc has been an attorney working in Racine since 1979 after graduating from University of Wisconsin-Madison law school. He
has been with the law firm of Murphy Johnson & Trampe SC since 1982 after serving three years as Assistant Corporation Counsel for the County of Racine.
When asked about his interest in serving on the Wind Point Village Board, Linc said "When I served as Assistant Corporation Counsel for Racine County I enjoyed working in local government as an attorney representing the County in various legal matters. With my legal background and experiences I thought I could be of some use to the Village and, therefore, I initially volunteered for the Board of Appeals and decided to run for the Village Board for that same reason. It has always been important to me and our law firm to give back to our community which has supported me through my entire legal career."
Linc and Susan enjoy hiking in the north woods, fishing, playing golf and motorcycling. Their favorite get-away is Door County. Linc also enjoys some hunting and shooting sporting clays.
