Salemians, it's worth your time -- really.
To spend 24 minutes listening to my interview with Ken Adam's on our community radio station, KMUZ. I talked about my report, "Outrage," an expose of the completely unnecessary killing of five beautiful healthy trees in downtown Salem next to the U.S. Bank building.
Ken asked some excellent questions, and made some great observations of his own about how the Salem City Council and other aspects of city government work. Or rather, don't work. As they should.
The podcast was just put up on the KMUZ web site. A few minutes ago I finished listening to it myself. Hey, I learned something from what Ken and I said, and I was there at the original interview.
(At the time I was focused on what I was saying, so really wasn't listening to myself.)
Maybe a few people in Salem will listen to the podcast who haven't yet turned in their May primary ballot. The deadline is today. Turn your ballot in at drop-off locations, such as the Marion County courthouse.
If you haven't voted, I hope the interview spurs you to vote for city council candidates who will change how things are done at City Hall: Andersen, Swank, Bassett, Lor, Proudfoot. Do it for the innocent trees.
