In February of this year, the Poughkeepsie City Councilmember At Large, Sarah Salem, was charged with a DWI after disobeying the traffic laws and causing a car accident with an innocent community member who was just trying to get home to her family after a long day of work. 

This is the SECOND DWI charge that Sarah Salem has been charged with within the last THREE YEARS. 

Sign this petition to call for the suspension WITH NO PAY of Councilmember Sarah Salem from her seat on the Council pending the outcome of the criminal charges. If guilty, we demand that Sarah Salem is removed from her elected position. Tax payers should not be paying the salary of an individual who was elected to propose, and enact laws yet has a total disregard for the law.

No one is above the law. 

We must support and embrace the victim. And let it be known that this is not tolerated. A community member, a mother, a hard working woman's life will be forever impacted by the recklessness of Sarah Salem. This could have easily been you. This could have easily been anyone driving on the road on that Wednesday night in February.
