“The issue was the illegal busing and transporting of students on his behalf,” Bruce said of Salafia. “A violation had occurred.”
Salafia viewed it differently. While he acknowledges a violation took place, it’s why the youth came out that matters, he argues.
“A bunch of kids made signs and supported a candidate they thought would advance the ideals and causes of the youth,” he said. “One of the campaign promises I made when I was running the first time was I would support the youth center. That’s why the youth came out and supported me, and I would like to think I had something to do with the youth center being passed at Town Meeting.”
