Having been born and raised in the sleepy town of Fayetteville, I would like to enlighten anyone considering relocation to this area.
For years this city has had opportunity after opportunity to host corporations that would provide positive increases in revenue for Fayetteville and its residents.
However, due to poor political decisions; our local economic situation is near hopeless. What the unemployment numbers for Fayetteville fail to bear out is that few residents work in Fayetteville and of those who do, many have to hold down a second job.
Real wages earned in Fayetteville are often at the poverty line or just slightly above or below. Our elected officials seem to have no growth plan but have no shame in trying to raise taxes on a populus that is already struggling to make ends meet.
Fayetteville is a beautiful and for most part peaceful town but it has been languishing for move than 5-6 decades. So, if you are looking for a place that is set in time and seems to be resistant to change - here's your place.
Fayetteville, Tennessee - where visions of growth perish and time has stood still for decades!!!
