Judy A. Carbone
HART for Animals Inc.
Judy A. Carbone ran last year in hopes of becoming the first woman and first Democrat to be elected as a Garrett County commissioner in 25 years. She did not win but was happy to challenge the status quo and hopes her campaign inspires more women to get involved.
Carbone joined HART for Animals Inc. in 2005 as a volunteer animal transporter and helped with fundraising. She is now its volunteer coordinator and works with about 200 volunteers.
As the president of the Garrett branch of the American Association of University Women, Carbone helped develop the student chapters at Garrett College and Frostburg State University.
