Craig McCrae to replace Carolyn Brown on City Council
The Monticello City Council accepted the resignation of Ward 2 Alderman Carolyn Brown at last night's meeting. As per Arkansas law, it was the duty of the current members to replace Brown at the next meeting. Two Monticellonians were nominated to fill the vacancy. Claudia Hartness nominated Craig McCrae and Al Peer nominated JoAnn Trotter. After some very heated discussion from Alderman Cedric Leonard and Alderman Joe Meeks about the process, it was voted that Craig McCrae would serve the remainder of Brown's term which ends on Dec. 31, 2018.
