Letter: Moorhead is a great city and place to live

The Feb. 19 Forum editorial titled “Migration to Fargo surprises” has raised my ire. It gets tiresome hearing Moorhead get bashed. You need to be careful. You particularly noted Moorhead and Clay County residents who have moved to Fargo. That’s true. However, that’s only part of the story. There are also many, many Fargo residents who have moved to Moorhead and Clay County. The last survey of new homeowners in Moorhead supports this fact.

I have lived in Moorhead 51 years, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I would never move to Fargo or anywhere in North Dakota. This is my hometown, and I love it. It’s heartbreaking to see the prejudice The Forum has with negativity toward Moorhead. It’s time to be fair. When either Fargo or Moorhead does well, all of us share in that.
