Mayor Somers has played an important part in incorporating this symbol into Murrysville's official letterhead. Weiss also wanted to personally thank the mayor for over 20-years of her commitment and efforts toward building a better business community for the residents of Murrysville. Ms. Somers graciously accepted and offered thanks to all in attendance. Mayor Somers noted the importance of supporting local business and new development.
