Mayors of Salem
Salem operated under a town government until the City Charter was accepted on March 23, 1836, making it only the second chartered City in the Commonwealth - the first being Boston.  The original charter, with a bicameral legislative body, was replaced by the Commission form in 1913.  This form, consisting of four commissioners and a Mayor, was supplanted in 1916 by the present form of City government, formally known as "Plan B Government".  In Salem, Plan B City Government calls for a Mayor, and City Council of 11 members - seven elected from the wards (1 from each ward) and 4 elected at-large.    

The following is a list of all the Mayors of Salem from its inception as a City in 1836 to the present.
