cused on the contested mayoral race between
Mayor Jay Barber and John Chapman, the
owner of KSWB Radio Clatsop. Tita Monte-
ro, Dana Phillips and Steve Wright, all incum-
bents running unopposed, were also present.
Appointed in January 2017, Barber said
his decision to run was driven by his love
of the city. He believes his leadership skills
paired with his civil relationship with council
would help drive future progress for the city.
“We face difficult issues, but it takes
leadership to get them done,” Barber said.
Chapman believes his experience work-
ing and volunteering with people from all
walks of life around the community would
be an asset to the council. He emphasized his
commitment to transparency and account-
ability if elected. His decision to run for
mayor is driven by a desire to give back to a
community that welcomed him 27 years ago.

‘A convenient place for making salt’
By Eve Marx
Historians and historical interpreters are back in Seaside
to celebrate one of Seaside’s most historic moments.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, the Lewis and Clark
Salt Makers will return to Seaside to spend a day making salt
on the beach just off Avenue U and the Prom.
This day-long re-enactment of five members of Lewis and

supply of salt from St. Louis ran out kicks off a six-day nation-
al conference of the 50th annual meeting of the Lewis and
Clark Trail Heritage Foundation.
