Scott Herwig: Considers Danvers his second home


“We were like a SWAT team essentially,” Herwig said. That background showed him the importance of public safety as a priority.

This is not the first time Herwig has tested the waters for a run for office. In 2013, he pulled nomination papers to run against Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, “figuring no one else was going to,” he said. He later withdrew from the race.

Herwig is not only running for a seat on the Board of Selectmen, but for Town Meeting in Precinct 3. No matter what happens in Tuesday’s election, he will be involved in Danvers affairs, because he is guaranteed a seat at Town Meeting — only six people, including Herwig, are running for the six seats up for election in his precinct.
