Dawn of a new era
McCarthy administration takes over county
— Cecil County Executive Alan McCarthy pledged Monday to lead the county with respect and teamwork, moments after he took the oath of office to become the county’s second executive.
McCarthy, a Republican, replaces outgoing executive Tari Moore, who chose
not to seek re-election after being elected the county’s first executive in 2012.
Cecil County Council members Bob Meffley and Jackie Gregory, both Republicans, were also sworn into office Monday during an inauguration ceremony organized by County Council Manager Jim Massey and staff.
