« At Salem's French Press, a tale of two free papers | Main | Salem City Council pulls an OMG! downtown parking surprise »

August 25, 2014


Regarding the Chamber's efforts to buy the Council ... guess what? They did! This is nothing new. They have owned the Council since they made Janet Taylor Mayor and gave those Commies (Mike Swaim, Bill Smaldone, etc.) the boot a dozen years ago. After this year's elections they will own seats in Wards 4, 6 and 8. Since they already own Wards 3 and 7 and the Mayor's vote, most of the time, they got it made! At least we elected Tom Andersen in Ward 2 which will increase the entertainment value of our Council if nothing else. Actually I have high hopes for Tom, whom I helped elect. He is our "foot in the door."
