In a case that exposed the hidden ties between middle-class drug users and gang violence, a former Burbank city councilwoman pleaded guilty Thursday to felony cocaine possession after a federal investigation connected her to guns, drugs and a violent street gang. Stacey Jo Murphy, 47, agreed to serve five years' probation and enter a drug diversion program as part of a plea agreement in the case, which also involved her longtime boyfriend, Scott Schaffer.

Re "Why the Expansion Issue Is Important," Oct. 26. I was genuinely pleased to read Stacey Murphy's balanced, accurate and reasonable discussion of the Burbank Airport expansion issue. For too long, the views of those who wish to make sure any expansion takes account of the needs of the outlying communities have been distorted and misrepresented. In addition, the Airport Authority and the FAA have too long been able to wield the old shibboleth of "impossible" restrictions on the airport.

A week after her arrest on suspicion of drug possession and child endangerment, Burbank Councilwoman Stacey Jo Murphy failed to show up for Tuesday night's council meeting, yet vowed to complete her four-year term. In a prepared statement read by City Manager Mary Alvord, Murphy said she would see her term through to its end, but would not attend city meetings until after she appeared before a judge.

Giving a vote of confidence to Councilwoman Stacey Murphy's handling of issues from the proposed new terminal at Burbank Airport to municipal growth, voters Tuesday reelected her to the City Council, but forced incumbent David Golonski into an April 10 runoff. Murphy, 42, the owner of a secretarial service computer company who has also served as mayor, garnered 6,276 votes to win a second term in office. She was the top vote-getter among eight candidates vying for three council seats. Marsha R.

Re "Terminal Plan Could Be Put to Public Vote," Aug. 24. Burbank Mayor Stacey Murphy isn't much of a poker player. She had a royal flush but folded for a pair of deuces, dealing Burbank Airport the expansion it has always wanted. Now it will be up to the citizens of Burbank and Ted McConkey to call her bluff.

City Council members on Tuesday night unanimously appointed a mayor and vice mayor after the abrupt resignation of two-term Mayor Bob Kramer. David Laurell, who had been vice mayor, became the foothill community's new mayor, and Councilwoman Stacey Murphy was chosen vice mayor. The city has set March 13 as the deadline to apply for Kramer's vacant council seat. The council is expected to interview and appoint his successor on March 19.

The position of Councilwoman Stacey Murphy, the swing vote in supporting termination of John Flynn as an airport commissioner, was based on her feeling that he was out of touch with the "philosophies of Burbank" and was "indicative of his failing to understand the issues at Burbank Airport" ("Burbank Airport Commissioner Is Fired," Dec. 4). This conclusion was based, apparently, solely on one vote (which did not change the majority outcome) he made on an airport administrative issue unrelated to the terminal relocation / airport expansion project that is the real concern to Burbank citizens.

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted the longtime boyfriend of Burbank Councilwoman Stacey Jo Murphy on four counts of drug and weapons violations. Scott Schaffer was indicted on charges of trading guns for cocaine, cocaine possession with the intent to distribute the drug, selling firearms to a known felon and using cocaine while possessing guns. Police found cocaine, ammunition and guns in Murphy's home. Schaffer's attorney said his client would plead not guilty at his arraignment Monday.
