Hendersonville is the Friendliest City in America

September 11, 2008

Thanks to a campaign spearheaded by local citizen and businesswoman Barbara Hughes, Mayor Greg Newman officially proclaimed Hendersonville as the “friendliest city in America”.  Barbara Hughes even set up a Friendliest City in America website to show the smiling, happy faces of Hendersonville’s friendly citizens as well as residents’ stories of what makes the city such a great place to live.  Barbara is hoping to get Henderson County’s Chamber of Commerce to link to her site to help get the word out on a national level.  US Senator Elizabeth Dole has even expressed her appreciation for the fine Hendersonville community, where she set up her western office after she was elected to the US Senate.  Senator Dole commended Barbara Hughes as a shining example of what makes Hendersonville such a spectacular city to live in.
