Cumberland Mayor Ray Morriss tells WCBC News that while it’s easy and perhaps understandable that many residents share a dim view of the city’s future- after just ten months on the job, he says he can see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Speaking on WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show”, Mayor Morriss said there are about a half a dozen significant projects in various stages of development that have the potential to lead to a major revitalization of this area…

      > Just have a positive attitude and everything will change. Cumberland has been in a decline beginning right after WWII and it accelerated in the 1960s. That is over 70 years of decline! Don’t even tell me to have a “positive attitude.”
