New city secretary at New Boston City Hall

New Boston named a new city secretary in a special called meeting on April 1, 2019.  Sharmin Hutto of New Boston was selected from over 100 applicants to take the position of city secretary, vacated when interim secretary Tammey Larey went on medical leave. (Larey will resume her duties as administrative assistant upon her return.) 

Hutto is originally from Auburn, Indiana and, ironically enough, graduated from DeKalb High School in DeKalb County, Indiana.  She and her husband Nick, who currently serves in the U.S. Army, have two children who attend/attended New Boston schools.  Sharmin has over eighteen years experience working in a legal setting, working for attorneys in Tennesee and Texarkana before accepting the city secretary position.  “I’ve done a lot of this type of work in previous jobs, but I’m still learning,” said Hutto.  “The main thing is, I want to be transparent with everyone.  If someone requests something, I send it.  If there’s something going on, everyone needs to know about it - not just one party here, or one party there.”

And although Hutto says learning the ropes has been a slow process, she feels the work is important, and worth it.  “I’m glad to be on board, to be part of the city,” she said.  “I do live here - not in the city limits, but everything affects someone in some way whether you live in the city or not.  I’m here to do things the correct way and to keep issues to a minimum.”
