A lot happening in Salem, where it looks like the Community Preservation Act will make the ballot.
Here’s the roundup:
In today’s paper, Tom Dalton reports that supporters of the CPA gathered more than enough signatures to put the issue before voters in November.
Also today, read three letters on the issue, all disagreeing with our editorial in support of the CPA:
Carter Vinson says the CPA is “not the best way for Salem.”
Steve Ferrante of Peabody says the CPA is “a tax by another name.”
Finally, Salem City Councilor Paul Prevey says the council showed leadership on the issue.
For background, here’s the editorial where we welcomed the petition drive.
