Letter: Save Main St. from what?

Letter: Save Main St. from what?

I have been a resident of Cumberland for 17 years and am trying to understand the opposition to the establishment of a credit union on Main Street. I think "saving" Main Street from a credit union is a bit melodramatic. I don't quite know what we would be "saving" Main Street from if the building gets voted down. It hasn't been necessary to "save" Main Street from two dentist offices, a library, a law firm, a dog breeder, a gas station, a variety store, or a chiropractor. Why does it need to be "saved" from a credit union? If more traffic is the big issue, I can't imagine a credit union would generate even close to the amount of traffic that the high school and the three other schools located just off Main Street do. The building that sits on the site now is a dilapidated eyesore. I'm voting yes to the establishment of a credit union on Main Street.
