VIDEO: Mayor Driscoll on What the Salem Harbor Power Station Project Means for the City

Mayor Kim Driscoll says she aims to help create a site that, "for the next 40 or 50 years" Salemites can be proud of.

Mayor Kim Driscoll was among the more than 200 people who attended a Wednesday "Executive Breakfast" featuring the CEO of the company that aims to transform the city's coal-fired facility into a smaller, cleaner — and much better looking gas plant.

In this quick video, taken after Peter Furniss of Footprint Power spoke to a capacity crowd of more than 200 at Tuesday morning's North Shore Chamber of Commerce Executive Breakfast Forum, Driscoll gives a snapshot of what the project means to Salem.

I hope jeanmarie is ashamed of her comments, how tasteless. Between Washington Street and this plant though are many residents who have to fight to park on residential streets. How about any enforcement?

Would you have made the same comment, jeanmarie, about a male politician? Would you have made that same comment using your full name and photo?

I'll tell you what is tasteless is out sourcing average joe jobs while administrators make $100k plus.Look at the different city depatrments and see how many employees work in each one and explain why our tax and water and excise payments got to a third party in Woburn. Also what is going on with the new police cruisers? It seems like every 6 months they get replaced. I remmember when our police cars lasted years.Public works vehicles all smashed up,from what? How much does the mayor and her staff make per year? Viscay was making $90k plus at a city job? The fire chief has a personal trail blazer, for what? Why does the mayor need a car? She should not even leave the city. All the police captians have cars,why? Why do we constantly see city DPW workers at work sites with private contractors? If all these things are cost saving measures then why do our taxes go up ever year? Salem is up to it's ears in nonsense.

John Kerry looks more and more like Mr. Ed every time I see him. Driscolls problem is she babbles and is never willing to take responsability for her mistakes.
