Letter: Cahill understands city's needs

To the editor:

I am proudly endorsing Mike Cahill for mayor of Beverly, as I feel he is the best candidate to continue moving our great city forward. Mike is a lifelong Beverly resident whose passion for our city and its residents is undeniable. Mike knows our residents. He listens to them, understands their needs, remembers their names, and engages them as a friend.

Mike will take our waterfront and downtown to greater economic growth, provide our children with the best education possible, ensure our residents have the best public services possible, and instill his level of Beverly pride in all of us.

When my children went to Ayers Ryal Side, I saw Mike’s hard work first hand. His leadership as Beverly’s state representative was paramount in making sure all the elementary schools were renovated with as much state funding as possible. Since 2009, I’ve had the privilege of working on the Beverly High School project as facility engineer of the Department of Public Service’s public schools division. The magnitude of that project, required a consolidated group of both city and school department personnel to work tirelessly together. When Mike was City Council president, he led the way on this consolidation. I’m confident that Mike will take over the reigns on the Memorial Middle School project and make sure it is also completed on time, on budget, and with as much state funding as possible.

I would like to wish a happy and healthy retirement to both Mayor Bill Scanlon and Ward 1 City Councilor Maureen Troubetaris. Beverly is where it is today because of both of you. I would also like to wish all the candidates the best of luck on Nov. 5. A lot of hard work is put into every campaign, and I hope the polls are active on Tuesday.
