BATH — Bath Housing is pleased to announce that Betsey Greene Glazier has been appointed by
the Bath City Council to the Bath Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. And, Phyllis Bailey, a
former City Councilor, has joined the Bath Housing Development Corporation Board of Directors.
Both will serve five-year terms.
Glazier was born and raised in Bath and graduated from Morse High in 1964. She enjoyed a long
career at Midcoast Hospital as a medical records transcriptionist and analyst until her retirement. As
a young adult, Glazier worked in Washington, D.C. for Senator Edmund Muskie, solving problems
and challenges facing constituents who reached out for assistance. She was chosen for a travel
team when Sen. Muskie ran for Vice President on the ticket with Senator Hubert Humphrey as
Humphrey eyed the White House.
As exciting and fascinating as the political jobs and travels were, she was always anxious to return
home on weekends to “the smell of the salt sea and song of the seagull.” Today, she lives in Bath
where she enjoys painting folk art, baking, reading horror stories, and antique and treasure hunting.
After six years as a Bath City Councilor for Ward 6, Phyllis Bailey joins the board after 9 years of
involvement with the organization, serving on its Programs Committee. Bailey has an impressive
range of experience in elder care/wellness, age-in-place programming and policy. She was critical
in the passing of Bath’s ADU ordinance and in creating the city’s Guidebook for Planning Accessory
Dwelling Units. During the pandemic, Bailey volunteered to edit the Bath Senior Center Newsletter to
ensure the distribution of important resources to community members, which she did for two years.
