City Council Defers Decision on Appointing Vacant Council Seat

The City Council will move forward without Larry Spicer until at least March after the City Council decided not to immediately fill former Councilman Clarence Shaw's vacant council seat.

The Monrovia City Council will operate with four members until at least March after the council decided not to immediately re-appoint Larry Spicer to the council after his appointment ended with the resignation of former Councilman Clarence Shaw.

The council decided to reconsider appointing someone to Shaw's seat at its regular meeting on March 5, which falls within the 60 day period the council has to appoint a replacement.

Shaw abruptly resigned his seat the day after the candidate filing period ended last week, effectively ending Spicer's tenure on the council. He can still be re-appointed later and stands to reclaim a seat in April if elections are held because he is one of two candidates running for two open seats.

Should our Council re-appoint Mr Spicer I will fight to be the first to shake his hand.

Well I will do everything in my power to make sure Mr.Spicer ISN"T elected ! I take it everyone has forgotten about what us neighbors have been going thru over the years. Yes folks you thought things were going good here on the cul de sac , well Mr.Spicer has been quiet since all this came up in July, I was one of the ones not directly involved but now I have my own proof of how this man is , but i will keep my mouth shut until the time is right . I will never shake this mans hand and I do not want him to represent the city I live in ! So citizens and council members think twice about him
