Sawicki is on ballot again

SALEM — One name will appear on Salem’s election ballot multiple times this fall: Ken Sawicki.

Sawicki is running for every office he possibly can, as he does most every year.

Sawicki’s name will appear on the ballot for mayor, School Committee, Ward 6 councilor and councilor-at-large. For the first three races, the field of candidates will be whittled down in the Sept. 17 preliminary election. Seven people, including Sawicki, are running for four councilor-at-large positions, which advances straight to the final election on Nov. 5.

Sawicki, 60, is single and lists his address as 40 School St. In an email (he has no telephone), he says he is self-employed and graduated from Salem High School (1970) and Bentley College (1974).

He is perhaps best known for a 2007 incident during his campaign for City Council, when he allegedly locked a man in a portable toilet and tipped it over, in a dispute over a $28 debt. He served two weeks in jail.
