I register as a Republican. I've been attending the town meetings that I can make it to as of late and will continue through the next year. I also find it important to learn the history of Salem which is a little more difficult.

Welcome Jason, although there is power in numbers don't sell your soul. Both parties have monthly meetings and attendance to the committee you seek is very important. One very good reason is you understand the commitments required. Maintaining current on events and issues is almost more important than learning history.

@Jason Deslauriers The Kelly Library has a book on Salem History that ends about 1900 and another that ends in the 70s. The Second, An the edge of megalopolis, was written by long time resident, the late Dick Noyes.

@Tom Thank you for the information. I was referring a little more to previous proposals for town expenditures. I attended the high schools meeting when they went over the proposal and was able to garner some information that I was unaware of. For example I did not know Salem rejected the previous school renovation budget back in 2007.

Good posting(s) by all! I am hoping that the good people will entrust me with their vote and confidence by electing me as one of their two selectman in the March 11th elections.
