Scullys on Bench Web

At least 100 people filled the lower end of Kirkwood Common near the park’s pond on Thursday afternoon to pay tribute to former Camden Mayor Tony Scully and his wife, Joy Claussen Scully. City Manager Mel Pearson kicked off the celebration by saying that he was privileged to have experienced not only the good times while working with Mayor Scully, but to see the phases he went through in being a candidate, first-time mayor and settling into the mayor’s chair. “Joy’s smiling over there; she knows what I’m about to say,” Pearson quipped.
