what's next?? tax breaks for a new sports stadium? all you need to get out of paying taxes is a sock full of baloney plan and local governments are so brow-beaten they'll sell out to the lowest bidder.

wonder how many new, personal cars will show up in the city's parking lots after this deal.

sure hope the city 'fathers' have enough tax breaks to go around for everyone. there's just a few people making money or getting sweet deals on this transaction. seems like it could stink.

They do need more space, good company fixed my car for free. No hassles, friendly service and competent mechanics. Yes, Pittsfield needs places like. Sorry that we have to put up with the racist, boneheaded losers in Pittsfield.

If he was going to expand anyway, why give the TIF? TIF's are generally used to lure businesses into a community.

You're an obvious shill. Are you Haddad himself or just a boot-licking lackey?
Thank you

Not only has he donated to ruberto, but the "honorable" mayor drives a Prius. Wonder how much, if anything, he paid for that?
