Should the city adopt a “buy local” policy?
Asked at The Merc, 901 Iowa St. on March 24, 2009
“I think it’s a good idea to keep our resources here in the city.”
“Yes, because I want to keep all business here in Lawrence.”
“Yes, especially with the way the economy is, it’s important that we keep the local economy strong.”
“No. You always take the lowest bid, unless there are circumstances that you know about that would cause you not to do that.”
