Town of Nahant Remembers Former Selectmen McIlveen

Nahant- Former Selectman Robert J McIlveen, age 94, passed away at home on December 18, 2021. Bob served on the Board of Selectmen from 1994 to 1997. Throughout his tenure he served alongside Selectmen Richard Lombard, Robert Forman and Michael Manning. “It was a pleasure serving with Bob” said former Selectman Richie Lombard, “He genuinely loved the Town of Nahant”. Selectmen McIlveen worked with Town Administrator Michael Wood and was on the Board of Selectmen for the hiring of Town Administrator Mark Cullinan. “Bob was extremely knowledgeable and a tremendous Selectman for the Town” said now Selectman Mark Cullinan. During his time as Selectman, he helped navigate the Town through some difficult financial times. In the early to mid 90’s, the Town was recovering from a financial deficit, in need of major capital infrastructure investments, and absorbing the impacts of the Education Reform Act of 1993. He also served during the effort to save Valley Road School. In his honor, the Town of Nahant will fly the American Flag at half-mast and display mourning buntings on the Town Hall.
