Scramble on for Lovely's Salem City Council seat


“Most of the city councilors I have spoken to are looking at last year’s election ... whether it’s myself or Steve Pinto,” he said. “... That’s again based on my conversations with them. That’s my understanding — they’re looking at last year’s election.”

Of course, between now and January, other candidates and issues are likely to emerge.

One factor, for example, brought up by several people yesterday is that when Lovely departs, there will be no women on the 11-member body. That could force councilors to take a hard look at any of several former female councilors.
