Len Scamardo has twice been unanimously appointed to the Prescott city council. In July, 2011 he did a four month stint for Tammy Linn following her resignation until a permanent replacement was found. In April, 2012 he was once again appointed to serve on council—this time for departing member John Hanna who resigned in order to run for District 1 Supervisor in Yavapai County.
Scamardo has nearly 20 years of experience on City of Prescott boards and commissions. He served two, three-year terms on the Prescott Board of Adjustment followed by three, four-year terms on the Planning and Zoning Commission as commissioner. He has also served on the City's Unified Development Code Committee.
Scamardo moved to Phoenix in 1979 becoming Vice President of Real Estate and Construction for Lucky Stores, parent company of Yellow Front and Checker Auto stores. A native of upstate New York, Scamardo attended Syracuse University, and had a successful career in commercial real estate and shopping center development. He retired in 1990 and opened “Bead It” and “Sun West Gallery” retail stores in downtown Prescott with his daughter.
His present term will expire in November, 2013.
