Jarrett announces bid for Ward 5 council seat in Northampton

Alex Jarrett says he’s hopeful about the city’s future, and he’s running for the Ward 5 seat on the City Council to enact policies that will keep it on that track.

Jarrett, 43, is a founder and worker-owner at Pedal People, a Northampton worker-owned cooperative whose services include trash and compost pickup and moving services, all done entirely by bicycle.

Jarrett helped start the business in 2002, which formally became a worker cooperative in 2006.
