Allen City Council will welcome a new face on Tuesday, June 26 as Lauren Doherty replaces Debbie Stout in Place No. 3.
Doherty was elected June 16 following a runoff. She has lived in Allen since 2005, serves as PTA President at Beverly Elementary in Plano ISD and has worked as child advocate at CASA of Collin County.
Stout served on Allen City Council from 2001-2012 and was appointed as an interim council member after the Place No. 3 seat was vacated by Joey Herald in December 2017.
Citizens are invited to join Allen City Council members at a public reception to welcome Doherty and recognize re-elected Mayor Pro Tem Gary L. Caplinger and Councilmember Kurt Kizer. Light refreshments will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26 in the Allen City Hall rotunda (305 Century Parkway). A program recognizing Doherty, Caplinger and Kizer, along with outgoing council members Debbie Stout and Joey Herald, will begin at 6 p.m.
