MILLINGTON, TN- (WMC-TV) – After a turbulent few months at Millington City Hall, things are finally beginning to settle down.
Millington's interim mayor said city leaders are beginning to re-focus after their former leader was at the center of a TBI investigation.
Interim mayor Linda Carter has been in office now less than a month.
"We're healing, we are healing," she said. "Everyone pulls together, we've all pulled together and I believe God puts things in out path to allow us to be better later on and that's what He's done for us."
On the city council for twenty years, Linda Carter had been out of public office three years when friends called and asked her to throw her name in the hat for the mayor's job.
Carter will serve as interim mayor the remainder of this year.
She took office in mid-January after embattled mayor Richard Hodges announced his retirement.
