Mayor, Village of Marblehead
January 2015 marks the 124th Anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Marblehead. From 1891 to present day, our village remains a prominent commonwealth for both residents and visitors.
As Mayor, I reflect back to when I first became a council member in 1997. At that time, as is now, I have always considered myself fortunate to have followed in the footsteps of the previous dedicated administrations that helped form our community. Their leadership, dedication and set standards have produced a strong municipality that will sustain future generations. Every elected official that has served, or is currently serving, has done so with the best interest of the Village of Marblehead in mind. As I look at our current administration and employees, I am proud to say that this great legacy continues. Our team is strong and our goal is common; the goal to sustain our fine village to its fullest potential with keeping future generations in mind.
