McDevitt’s next political goal has been a long time in the making.
“My next step forward is to run for Whitley County Recorder,” she said. “This has been my goal for the last seven years and I promise to work diligently for the people of Whitley County.”
McDevitt graduated from CCJHS with the class of 1973 and later graduated from Ravenscroft Beauty College in 1979. Married to husband, Keith, for 36 years, they have two children, Aaron McDevitt and Jenee Nix. They are also blessed with five beautiful grandchildren, Grace, Eli and Dinah McDevitt, Maycee and Malarie Nix.
“I spent 25 years as a hairdresser in Columbia City, worked at Columbia Auction for my father, farmed with my husband, had a DJ business for 12 years, worked in a bank for two years, and currently am employed as Office Manager for Speedway Sand and Gravel Inc. for the last two years,” McDevitt said.
McDevitt is an active member of Grace Lutheran Church in Columbia City where she serves as an assisting minister, director of the Altar Guild, reader, VBS teacher and a substitute in the hand bell choir.
“I am a member of the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary, Friend of the Peabody Public Library, Friend of the Whitley County Historical Museum and former vice president of the South Whitley Chamber of Commerce,” she said.
“Through the years I have always worked with the public and love people. I have always had to keep books, records and handled the cash and deposits,” she said.
“I believe with all of my experiences in life and working on the Advisory Board with budgets and funds, along with my strong Republican work ethics and values, I can excel in this position,” added McDevitt.
“I am asking for your vote and support in the May 4, 2010 primary election to reach my goal as County Recorder,” she said.
