Letter: New representation needed for the heart of Salem

(Continued)

I know, you get experience by being in the game. But, eventually, someone as great as a Ted Williams or a Carl Yastrzemski has to retire. There are new players who need to be heard from to take their places and who also understand where positive change can lead us, and it is not backward to some mythical Salem of Yore that doesn’t exist anymore.

Ward 2 is the heart of Salem. It is downtown, the Common and its many unique historic neighborhoods and entry ways. It is important not just for those who live here but for all in the city and our many guests. We need to have representation that can stand up on principle and deed. Not just go along to get along the divisive highway of special interests and political mediocrity.

I am supporting Heather Famico, because she is the way forward for Salem’s future and will clearly be an independent voice on a City Council sorely needing one who can clearly evaluate both sides of issues as they come along to best serve her Ward 2 constituents. Please join me in helping her get elected to this important seat on Nov. 5.
