« “Assassination Tango” and our inner Argentinas | Main | The Portland “boom!” An alien cover-up? »

All one need do is look at who contributes the most campaign dollars to the current crop of Salem City Councilors. I'm sure you'll find that most them are beholden to the building industry. Consequently, today's City Council merely is representing those narrow interests.

Salem needs to elect councilors with vision, people like former mayor Mike Swaim and former councilors Bill Smaldone, Kasia Quillinan, Anna Braun and Linda Bierley. Until Salem is represented by those who seek to serve the WHOLE community, the current problem will continue unabated.

When I first moved to Salem two years ago, I was surprised at the lack of housing options around downtown. And I'm still waiting...that's why Pringle Creek Community has caught my attention.
