Hadley business flourishes, Northampton’s struggles

We watch Northampton lose businesses on Main Street, King Street and other areas of the city.

We also see Hadley thriving, opening new businesses with vigor. They welcome new businesses and flourish. I have discussed with restaurant owners outside the city, both chains and private. I was informed by them Northampton would not be a welcoming city for them. Why? Affordable restaurants bring people to the city.

The city of Northampton wants a utopia, funded by the residential taxpayers.

Eyes wide shut!
