Allen graduated from Newcomerstown High School in 1967. He also hold a degree in Computer Programming/Systems Analysis from Kent State University. Currently he is working as a Systems Analyst in the Cleveland Clinic Department of Quantitative Health Science.
He and his wife Linda have been married for 45 years and are the parents of Brian (Abby Archer Collins), and Shannon (John) Meek. They are the proud grandparents of 4 grandchildren. They returned to Newcomerstown in 2017 after residing in Hinckley, Ohio for 18 years.
They enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, biking and most of all spending time with their family. Allen also continues to ride dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, hunt, and mountain bike. Our lives are full. I am happy to serve as a member of Newcomerstown Council. He took this step because he believes it is a responsibility to help the community wherever he can.
Allen serves as Chair for the Finance & Long Range Planning Committee.
This is Allen's first year on council and we look forward to working together.
