Mayor Walsh: Support Small Bizs During Holidays to Keep Our Neighborhoods Thriving All Year Long

I grew up in a neighborhood of hardworking families, where everything seemed within reach. It was thanks in large part to our incredible small and local businesses. For years, these local landmarks have carried on the traditions of my neighborhood, and generated the prosperity that’s helping Dorchester thrive to this day. I know my experience was not unique. Small businesses are the lifeblood of all Boston’s neighborhoods.They hire locally; they reflect our rich diversity of cultures and languages; and they care deeply about being good neighbors.
