Northampton City Council president David Narkewicz stops by to chat about the hot button issues of the day: what are we going to do with our trash, why are we buying land to protect drinking water and city councilors, and, of course, what are we going to do about the fiery apocalypse that is the Look Park roundabout? Seriously, last I heard, if you even look at the roundabout it will suck out your soul.
Well, we made it through our first day with only a few technical difficulties! We talked to our friend Bill Scher, who gave us a preview of his daily feature The Progressive Breakfast. You can tune in and hear him chat with us every day. Don’t forget you can stream Valley Free Radio’s programming here.
Northampton Mayor Higgins gave us the lowdown on some of the issues on folks’ minds here in town.
Plus, State Senator Stan Rosenberg talked about some of the bills he filed last week, including a proposal for medical marijuana and a graduated income tax.
