Appears the residents have spoken and placed some new people in City Hall. Well done Salem.

Disappointed about Darek. The man has a lot to offer Salem.

Darek will be back. I'm sure of it.

The election certainly reflects that cooperation and collaboration rule over obstructionism and reliance on archaic outdated rules of decorum. Get busy, elected officials--you have lots to do!

Glad to see Siegel win in my ward. It's been a long wait. Like others posting here, sorry that Darek B. didn't make it onto the council this time around. Hope he will go for it again in a couple of years. Salem High is a rotten place to go to vote, especially after dark. Discourages voting. The senior center made much more sense. Thanks for keeping us posted here. Checked the Salem News earlier and found nothing.

Hear, hear Becky. It's time for getting things done in the City and allowing for the new - not the de rigur of "we don't want that sort of thing here in Salem". You can bet that those who didn't get elected and their supporters (especially the younger generation) will be watching the incumbents who kept their seats a lot closer to see if they keep to the old hardline or start making changes that embrace new ideas that help the younger families, workers and businesses in their City.

Glad to see both obstructionists out. I certainly don't want "yes men" but what Pinto and Ronan did to the Mayor this year is so far wrong that it can't ever be forgiven... The first thing on the table should be removing that charter of obstructionism. All should be allowed to talk.
Darek Barcikowski November 09, 2011 at 10:37 PM
Will be back for a definite victory in 2 years and definitely not falling off the radar in the mean time! Thanks for the support.

We have to have limits on talking at council meetings. Anyone can speak if you sign up before the meeting and then you are allowed to speak once. Council meetings can't go on forever there is too much business to be done.At every meeting they reach a point where they ask about the mayors information page and every meeting there is nothing on it.She is not a member of the city council.I don't want her in there interfering with those that have been elected as coucilors.
