Column: Helping Salem 'become strength'

(Continued)

We can’t let Salem become another Washington, D.C. We can’t let personalities prevent our city from progressing. We can’t forget the 300 votes in January. But what we can do is dedicate ourselves to our beautiful, amazing, kick-ass city, which will only get better with your support. That starts with your vote on Tuesday, Nov. 5, when I implore you to engage in your civic duty and vote.

I’m proud of this city and where it’s going, so let’s drop titles of “pro” or “anti” administration, “us” and “them” adages, “old” versus “new” symbolism. Instead, let’s make Salem the home of true democratic engagement and “become strength.” It starts with your vote, though, which perhaps one day soon, I’ll also be proud to earn.
