Cahill to run for mayor


“I bring the skills, the experience, the relationships, and the determination to move our city forward,” he said. “... I am fully prepared to lead.”

Cahill praised Scanlon for “his two decades of invaluable service to the people and the city of Beverly” and credited the mayor and “many other Beverly citizens” with leaving the city “in outstanding shape.”

“A strong foundation has been built, and Beverly is poised for continued success,” Cahill said.

Among other goals, Cahill said he wants to complete the new middle school project, revitalize the downtown and waterfront, improve roads and sidewalks, and establish Beverly as a regional cultural center to attract tourism and economic growth.

“My singular focus will be on the issues that contribute to the quality of life we all value here in Beverly,” he said.

Candidates have until Aug. 2 to take out nomination papers. They must be returned to City Hall with 100 signatures by Aug. 20. The preliminary election is Sept. 24 and the final election is Nov. 5.
