Here at Salem Digest we look at a Carpetbagger as a good thing. It is not political or related to predatory financial matters. Our definition is simple.
SALEM CARPETBAGGER: A resident of Salem for less than twenty years who moved here for the right reason, because they love the area and have fallen in love with Salem. They are friends, relatives, and co-workers who are as invested in our community as much as anyone else.
This is a place for our beloved Carpetbaggers to share their views on the people, places, and events here in Salem.
