A Word From Chuck

Dear fellow Salem resident,

I believe in Salem. In the midst of this public health crisis, we have seen our community come together like few times before. Together, we can get through this. 

Our small businesses are getting hit hard by the Coronavirus. As a City Councilor for 8 years, I was there when Salem residents banded together to bounce back from the 2008 financial crisis. As your Mayor for the last four years, we have seen our economy grow, providing more and more working families with good paying jobs.

Now, much of that progress has been erased by this epidemic. We must work together to craft policies that support our small businesses and the hard-working people of  Salem. 

Our city is resilent. And more than ever, I am committed to working to making Salem more affordable for everyone, solve our homelessness crisis, and responsibly plan for our city’s future. 

Let’s come together, and bounce back. Salem is worth it. 

Chuck Bennett
