Message to the Town of Cumberland

It is an honor to be given the opportunity to be the Mayor of such a vibrant community. As Mayor, I have the unique privilege to see so much of what makes this community special. It is why I have made my priorities clear to include all the elements that make Cumberland not just livable, but a truly great place to live, work, and play.

One of the greatest things about Cumberland isn’t a thing at all, it is the people. I believe in Cumberland, and I believe in Cumberland’s future. By capturing the spirit and energy of this town and by working together, we can create a community that provides opportunities for all. Together we can develop a state-of-the-art senior center, revitalize Broad Street, and bring Diamond Hill Park to life for a new generation. This is all achievable. This is who we are.

If there is ever anything our office can do to be of service to you, please contact my Community Outreach Coordinator, Sarah King at 401-728-2400 x132.  

We appreciate your patience during these challenging times. I firmly believe that we are better together. Our collective strengths as individuals and as a town will always see us through.

Be well.

Thank you,

Mayor Jeff Mutter
