Good Job Council! Did any of you supporters take a ride and see some of this company's other developments that were sold to residents as " young professional" type housing? You think Salem is getting bad now, wait till this place opens its doors.

What is "young profession" type housing? I thought the liberals had laws passed that prohibited any kind of rental discrimination. So for someone to say they are building "young professional" type housing they are twisting their words. What they are building may very well be housing that young professionals may want to rent but that does not mean they will be occupying them. Salem can't fill up all the empty buildings we have now. How are we going to fill up all these new ones. And where are all these young professionals suppose to come from??

Something else to think about is: successful young professionals in our area, usually don't rent. They buy their homes.
