Developer spent $18K on Brimbal campaign


Other donors to Better for Beverly included former Mayor Bill Scanlon ($50), City Councilor Jim Latter ($50), former City Councilor Maureen Troubetaris ($25), former state Rep. Mary Grant ($50), and the campaign committees of City Councilor Jason Silva ($100) and former councilor and mayoral candidate Wes Slate ($25).

Better for Beverly spent the majority of its money, about $14,700, on printing and mailing costs.

The top donor to the North Beverly Neighborhood Association in the latest reporting period was Linden Avenue resident Ambia Smith, who gave $350.

The Brimbal Avenue rezoning proposal won at the polls, 3,978 to 3,743, a 235-vote margin. The “no” advocates would have needed 5,121 votes to win under a provision requiring 20 percent of registered voters to overturn a decision by the City Council.
