Alice Dunn, Commissioner

"If I ever reach a place where I can’t help, I'm getting out."
– Alice Dunn
Alice Dunn has been serving the Town of Peletier as a Commissioner since it was founded as a municipality in 1996. Born and raised in Carteret County, Alice is one of the Town of Peletier’s most dedicated civil servants and a strong advocate for the greater good. Although retired after a 37-year career as an educator for the state of North Carolina, she is still working tirelessly for the best interest of the town and the people of Peletier. After being broadsided at the Taylor Notion Rd. intersection and living to tell the tale, Alice made highway safety a top priority. She’s currently petitioning lawmakers to reduce the speed on Hwy 58, and working to put a stop light at the dangerous Taylor Notion Rd. intersection. Alice wants the town to know that if she ever felt like things are not being done for the benefit of the town, then she’s going to make sure that they are.

Alice can be contacted at 910.389.5610

Larry Rhue, Commissioner

"Peletier will be a great place to live for a long time. It’s close to everything and has room to grow."
– Larry Rhue
Larry Rhue is a Peletier native whose entire family has been in the area for most of their lives. In fact, many of them have been here since the early 1930s. Both his mother and father were born in Peletier and his mother is still living and still located in town. Larry’s two sisters and one brother also call Peletier home. Aside from his time in the service, Larry never went too far from home. He worked in warehouses in New Bern for 30 years and moved back to Peletier in 1988 and has been here ever since. He became a commissioner after seeing a need for a helping hand while serving on the town planning board. Larry felt that he could make an impact as a commissioner and so he threw his hat in the running. He’s served as commissioner ever since (almost eight years now!). Larry describes Peletier simply as ‘home’ and loves that it offers a sense of community and simple, small town life.
