This evening, the City Council of Temple City voted 3-2 to appoint Tom O’Leary as the newest member of the Planning Commissioner.
O’Leary currently sits on the Parks and Recreation Commission. He fills the seat left vacant by Carl Blum. Blum stepped down in June.
“I’m happy” commented O’Leary after he was offered the position.
The City Council had conducted interviews with two other candidates. Mayor Pro Tempore Dave Capra made his first official appearance since his absence earlier this month.
O’Leary will begin his post as Planning Commissioner after the City Council officially approves his appointment on August 19, 2008.
