Legault wins on 302nd vote

Salem: Pinto, Corchado withdraw their candidacies for Lovely's council seat

(Continued)

Six residents had submitted letters of interest to fill Lovely’s vacancy.

In addition to Legault, Pinto and Corchado, the candidate pool included Sicuranza, director of communications for the New England Police Benevolent Association; Robert Wright, a college teacher with a lengthy background in state government; and Ken Sawicki, who has run unsuccessfully for multiple offices.

Council President Jerry Ryan apologized to each of the candidates last night (except Wright, who was absent) for Thursday’s marathon session.

Pinto replied, “You don’t have to apologize. It (the process) is democracy.”
