Fletcher said what many people are thinking

In response to Mr. Fletcher’s editorial, “We haven’t built it, and they haven’t been coming”: I’m glad you publicizedwhat many community members have been saying for a long time. I was a resident of Grand Rapids for 12 years before making the decision to move my family to my home town of Alpena. That decision was based on a love for this wonderful community and for my family that lives here. What I want the community to recognize is that there are many more people that have made the move back to Alpena because we want to be closer to family and give our children the wonderful experiences of growing up in Alpena. Now, the question is how can we help improve Alpena so that we can show others that Alpena is the place to be?
