Allen welcomed its two newest Councilmembers, Dave Cornette and Dave Shafer, during an oath-of-office ceremony at the June 22 Council meeting. Mayor Fulk presented both councilmembers with their Certificate of Election and official canvass results.
During the meeting, Allen bid farewell to outgoing Councilmember Lauren Doherty, formerly Place No. 3. Lauren served on Allen City Council since 2018.
“Councilmember Doherty was elected in 2018 with a passion for making local government more accessible and inclusive,” said City Manager Eric Ellwanger. “Together with her colleagues on Allen City Council, she also helped steer the City through some major changes…from hiring a new city manager to the temporary appointment of a new mayor, to the City’s response to COVID-19.”
