My name is David Murray, and I am a financial   representative with County Financial. I have been with Country for 14 years and have recently moved my office from St. Charles to Montgomery, where I live with my wife and two children. I was born and raised in Montgomery and have always wanted to have my business local. I am looking to build relationships in the area and would welcome the opportunity to sit down and share what I, along with Country, can do for you. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
