Mayoral candidates talk differences, strengths Cumberland voters will decide the next mayor in next Wednesday's primary CUMBERLAND – Mayoral candidate Jeff Mutter says the three greatest differ- ences between himself and Mayor Bill Murray center on temperament, experi- ence, and the fact that he, as a challenger, is a problem-solver. Also asked this week to share the three most significant differences between himself and his opponent, Murray said they relate to how he views the town of Cumberland and office of mayor, his view on controlling taxes and the interests of taxpayers, and how to "strongly fund" education while still watching out for the taxpayer.

A key item of concern for parents of students at the high school was traffic, both inside and outside the school. Temperatures in the 90s put an added strain on those trying to navigate the build- ing, which has been modified to enable the demolition of the school's "connecter" at the center of the campus. One parent of a freshman at LHS called the third day of the school year "day three of destruction at LHS."
