Storm or not, Beverly City Hall bids Scanlon farewell


Guilebbe said he had a “good rapport” with Scanlon.

“He’s always been supportive of veterans,” he said.

Scanlon, who did not seek re-election, told the gathering he’s “not going anywhere” and is going to be “quiet, with the exception of the Brimbal Avenue project.”

The project, which involves reconstruction of the access road from Route 128 and the development of a shopping plaza, hinges on a Feb. 8 referendum vote.

Summing up his 18 years in office, Scanlon said, “It’s thousands of days if you measure it, but it seems to have gone by in a flash.”
