I've started following your blog because I am planning to move to Salem sometime in 2014 and want to learn about what's going on there. My son is moving to Salem early in December for a job with the state.

A mayor was elected to office in the town I live in after publicly decapitating a downtown parking meter (it was already broken so there were no adverse consequences)to protest their presence. The meters are long since gone, as is that mayor, but have been replaced by a "parking nazi" who enthusiastically tickets cars violating the 2-hour limit on parking.
