Brenda Spencer Appointed To Century Town Council. She’s A Former Escambia County Legal Secretary.

July 7, 2020

The Century Town Council voted unanimously Monday night to appoint Brenda Spencer to a vacant seat on the board.

Spencer is a Century native who retired in 2012 after 21 years as a legal secretary and co-office manager for the Escambia County attorney and deputy attorney. She has previous experience as medical secretary and was secretary to the plant manager at Wayne Dalton Corporation in Century from 1980-1988.

She will be sworn in during the next regular meeting of the council on July 20. Spencer will remain in office until an elected council member take office the night of January 4, 2021.

The seat was was left vacant when Ben Boutwell resigned in early June in order to run for mayor. That put his Seat 3 position on this year’s ballot, and allowed the council to appoint a new member for the rest of the year to fulfill the remainder of his term.

    Congratulations Councilwoman Spencer!

    Century needs leadership. Bold, yet properly sized strides are needed to move the Town into a better future.

    There is a tendency to think too small, and to isolate (or believe in isolation) out of fear and being overwhelmed. I would strongly suggest making connections to the federal and state legislators, and especially Escambia County and City of Pensacola elected and administrative personnel to gain ideas. Develop a rapport with Northview HS, PSC, PSC, and UWF to strengthen education for your fellow citizens. Find pathways to improve infrastructure and the economy. Mitigate to better prepare and recover from natural disasters. Prepare for a warmer climate and seek ways to use energy efficiently and sustainably.

    Think to the future, avoid getting mired in the ruts of tradition, and take it all one day and one step at a time. The future of Century is at hand. Good luck to you.
