Letter: The time is right for senior center project


Member of the Salem Police Headquarters Building Committee;

Member of the Salem Municipal Golf Course Club House Building Committee.

The project will provide a safe and modern facility for the entire community. Amazingly, the private space component will generate tax revenue to fully fund the cost of the bond. The location is centrally located and accessible.

There are always ways to find faults with any project, and that is not challenging. The challenge is for Salem leaders to find opportunities to make things work and to make things happen. It’s easy to delay but always more rewarding to forge ahead with a good idea.

This project should not be delayed. Past delays have denied a generation of Salem seniors the benefits they have richly earned. Another delay will simply result in another generation of Salem seniors being denied what they deserve.

The project is right. The time is right. The time is now.
