Congressman Greg Murphy visits Onslow County


JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) Congressman Greg Murphy is touring areas of his district, including one of the airports serving the East and a major military base.

Murphy’s stops on Wednesday included Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and a tour of Albert J. Ellis Airport. ​

​The third district congressman considers the airport an important resource, with its tourist traffic and business links to the rest of the country. ​

​Managers tell Congressman Murphy, Albert J. Ellis is doing better than similarly sized North Carolina airports during the pandemic.

They say their passenger numbers reflect how the Jacksonville area is weathering the coronavirus.
