HARFORD COUNTY - Three Harford County women won positions this year that had long been held by men.

Jessica Boyle-Tsottles will serve as the District E council member, Alison Healey will serve as the state's attorney, and Michelle Karczeski will serve as clerk of the Circuit Court.

All three Republican women were elected to seats that were held by men in 2018. The elected county executive, the other six County Council positions, the register of wills, and the sheriff are all positions still held by men.

Healey will be the first-ever woman to serve as Harford County States Attorney, and Karczeski will be the first woman elected clerk of the Circuit Court.

The Aegis reports that Healey sees this as a moment in Harford County history.

“All three of us were able to show that we were the best candidates for the position," Healey said, "but I'm incredibly proud of the message that we're able to send by holding these places in history."
