The Boston City Council elected Stephen J. Murphy its president this morning at its first meeting of the new year.

Murphy, an at-large councilor from Hyde Park, was elected on a 12-0 vote. He takes the mantle from Michael P. Ross, who had to step down after two years because of term limits. First elected in 1997, Murphy has been the long-time chairman of the Public Safety Committee.
