A Message from Paul

As a longtime resident of Salem, I understand the wonderful potential that exists here for our residents, businesses and visitors. I have worked hard to build a successful life in Salem, and I know that for many it is getting much more difficult to do so. I see working families leaving because of rising taxes and a lack of opportunities. Many seniors who have made Salem their home for most of their life struggle to hold onto their homes. For too long, the people of Salem have been unrepresented by City Hall. I am running for Mayor to give Salem back to the residents and small businesses, and to put an end to deaf leadership and over development.
