THOUSAND OAKS – Thomas P. Glancy, chairman of the city Planning Commission, has been appointed to fill the City Council seat of former Councilman Edward Masry, who died Dec. 5, just days after he resigned because of ill health. Forty-three people applied for the seat, including seven current or former planning commissioners, a former mayor and a former Ventura County supervisors. The City Council reviewed the applications and selected Glancy Tuesday night. Mayor Claudia Bill-de la Pena, who called for an election rather than appointment of a replacement for Masry, opposed the appointment of Glancy in a 3-1 vote. A dentist who has been active in the YMCA and the Thousand Oaks Rotary Club, Glancy was appointed to the Planning Commission in 1999 by City Councilman Dennis Gillette. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
