Deceased Mayor John McCarty on Ballot for Spring Bay Voters, Metamora Herald

 This article was put together from a social media post about the recently deceased mayor of Spring Bay. John McCarty was a well-respected man in the community and will be missed. The Herald is sharing this to help inform voters. We will gladly share any information given to us by any interested parties, whether you are running for office or not.
John McCarty moved to Spring Bay when he was 13 years old. His parents owned a grocery store and filling station for decades in town. John and his wife, Julia, bought a house in the Village of Spring Bay in 1970 and raised their four girls. Shortly after moving to the village, he became Mayor of the town.
Over the years, John was involved in several grants for the village. He assisted in the construction of the upper and lower parks, mowed and plowed snow for the village, and helped families over the years with the floodings. Mayor John had a passion for his community. He was involved with many organizations such as Spring Bay American Legion, Township Clerk, Jaycees, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Izaak Walton League, Ducks Unlimited and many more. He also enjoyed community activities such as the watermelon festival and 4th of July fireworks. John had also overseen many young adults on the work release program.
 To everyone living in the village of Spring Bay:  John McCarty's name is still on the ballot for village president. Per Woodford county clerk-registered voters can still vote for John McCarty. If John McCarty wins it creates a vacancy and the village board can appoint someone in John McCarty's place.
