Both of them also shared what prompted their initial run for the position.

“I thought I could make a difference,” Allen explained. “I wasn’t getting representation where we live and I thought it was time to maybe help the rest of the citizens.”

“A few years ago, I just felt a call to serve,” McCarty noted. “I had been around politics for quite a while. I just really, really wanted to do this job, and I love it. It is the most diverse job I’ve ever had.”


McCarty also shared this is her last term, having promised in the very beginning she would only run for two terms.

Also, sworn in on January 4th were David Bennett and Rick Lee, both re-elected Dubois Town Councilmembers. Click here for more info.
