Great critique Brian. Mayor [Polly]anna Peterson did not acknowledge that very little was accomplished in 2013 to make Salem a more desirable place to live. Portland, Eugene and Corvallis are leaving us in the dust. But, looking on the bright side, at least she did not mention the 3rd bridge like she did in her speech last year, when she showed strong support for it. Maybe she realizes it is a big loser, politically. Unlike County Commissioner Sam Brentano, who has gone on record in favor of tolling the Marion and Center Street bridges ASAP. Salem Weekly has the story.
