My name is Alice Merkl, and I am running to be your Councillor at Large in Salem, MA in 2021. When I first came to this vibrant city, I fell in love with its beauty, rich history and culture, diversity, and the passion our residents have for their community. I am thrilled to channel my enthusiasm for this city into a campaign to represent the people of Salem on our City Council.
During the Covid crisis, I have watched our community come together and create a supportive and caring environment for our most vulnerable community members. The creative ways that people, community organizations, first-responders, health care workers, and church groups are helping each other are so impressive. I have had the privilege of seeing our community in action first hand through my extensive volunteer work with the Salem Food Pantry, the Salem Together wellness calls to our seniors, the Mack Park Food Farm, neighborhood clean ups, and other venues. Watching how our community has persevered and come together through our most challenging times has made me more dedicated and inspired than ever to serve.
