Upbringing spurred Cahill to public service


At 51, Cahill, who is single, is now two decades removed from his days as a youthful state representative. But with the 73-year-old Scanlon about to relinquish the mayor’s office, Cahill said his election would represent a “generational change.”

“It’s the next-generation leadership that’s helping to drive progress across the North Shore,” Cahill said, referring to Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, Gloucester Mayor Carolyn Kirk and Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt. “Our city is about to join that.”
