Will Salem City Council Elect a President Tonight?

Salem City Council will gather tonight at City Hall to elect a council president.

Will Salem City Council Elect a President Tonight?

When members of Salem City Council convene tonight at City Hall, it will be the first time the group has met since Thursday night, when councilors failed to select a replacement for Joan Lovely despite voting 300 times over a span of seven hours.

With that kind of performance to follow, there's no telling how long tonight's meeting will last, considering councilors will be charged with electing a council president and several committee chairmen.

Regardless of tonight's outcome, council members are scheduled to meet again Tuesday night to continue the debate over who will replace Lovely - Steven Pinto, Lucy Corchado or one of four other candidates.

So, we have to ask - what do you expect from tonight's meeting?

Will you be attending?

Do you expect city councilors will quickly elect a council president after receiving so many complaints regarding their last meeting?

Do you expect another marathon meeting?

Let us know in the comments section below.
