Monrovia's New Councilman: Larry Spicer

The Monrovia City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday to appoint the planning commission vice-chair to fill Councilman Clarence Shaw's seat temporarily.

Monrovia has a new councilman, at least until next summer.

Larry Spicer, the vice chair of the city's planning commission, was appointed to fill Councilman Clarence Shaw's seat on the Tuesday. The council voted 3-1 to appoint Spicer, with Councilman Tom Adams voting against the appointment.

Shaw is currently and left for a one-year tour in July. Spicer will take his seat on the council until Shaw returns, likely sometime in the summer of 2012.

My name is Richard J. Ratz, I do not live in Monrovia and know very little of the area or its political culture, but I do know Larry Spicer. You see we met 38 years ago while serving in the military in a foreign country when all we had was each other. We have been life long friends since and I am honored to know him. I can not think of a better human being to help represent your community. I have faith in people like Larry and think that you are very lucky to have him working on the behalf of all people he represents. God speed, Richard J. Ratz Pulaski TN.

Wow. What slimey spinelessness! Hay, Badboy, is that you again? Up to your old tricks from the FC Blog? If you have some information you think the public ought to know, then have the integrity to present it in the full light of day. The tradition in this country is that a man can face his accuser. I know nothing of the charges, and, frankly, little of Mr. Spicer. But your brand of political gamesmanship is one of the things that's destroying our country and communities. So, if you don't have the courage and integrity to stand up and say something, keep your mouth shut.

Thank you for your service to our country Richard Ratz, Robert Parry, Larry Spicer and all others who have or will serve our country, but I would like to her what Larry Spicer has to say about this matter. Stand up and be counted again Larry Spicer.
