Narkewicz Kicks Off Re-Election Campaign in Northampton

(Northampton, MA) – Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz is running unopposed for a second term.  Starting in January, the term will be four years instead of two on account of the city’s new charter. Narkewicz kicked off his campaign Monday night at the World War Two Club on Conz Street surrounded by a large crowd of supporters. He says funding the city’s budget will continue to be Northampton’s biggest challenge ahead. Two years ago running as acting mayor and City Council president, Narkewicz beat challenger Michael Bardsely in a landslide.
