I don’t understand why the redo of Main Street in Northampton has not been put on a ballot for the citizens of Northampton to vote on. Our taxes are outrageously high as it is.

Does our mayor really think this is a dictatorship when she says the plan is, “not up for reconsideration”? I certainly will never vote for her again. Maybe it is time for us to vote out all of the City Council, too.
