Former assembly member, Betty J. Glick honored in naming ceremony

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly Chambers were officially dedicated to Betty J. Glick, a former assembly member, in a ceremony before Tuesday’s assembly meeting.

Assembly member Dale Bagley presented the resolution to name the chambers after Glick at the November assembly meeting. Glick was a former assembly member from 1982-1995, and then again from 2002-2005.

At Tuesday’s assembly meeting, Bagley said he was happy Glick could attend the ceremony.

“Betty has been around forever,” Bagley said. “I think there’s a lot of people out there that have called her over the years for advice on how to handle certain situations and it was a great opportunity to name these assembly chambers after Betty J. Glick. I think it was also kind of nice we got to do it while she’s still around.”

In 1981, Glick was recognized in the “Who’s Who of American Women” for her dedication to the community, the resolution said.

She served on the Kenai City Council, and was vice mayor of Kenai, and the chair for the Kenai Peninsula Borough Planning and Zoning Commission. While serving on the borough assembly, she was elected vice president and then president.

The resolution says Glick “has selflessly served the constituents of the Kenai Peninsula Borough since her arrival to Alaska in 1961.”
