Should the city pay more to buy its vehicles from a local dealership?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 11, 2006
“I guess it depends on how much more. If it’s just a little more and we’re helping local businesses, then yes. If we’re getting gouged by the local dealers, then I would say no.”
“I say keep it in the community. Lawrence is a community-minded type of place.”
“I think the money should go back into the local economy, but I think the dealerships should be giving the city a discount.”
“I say we pay a little more to keep it in Lawrence. It’s a great place, and if it costs a little extra to keep it thriving, I honestly don’t mind.”
