Cynthia A. Kochan: Crosswalk should not have been painted

To the editor:

I do not support painting a rainbow flag on a crosswalk on Northampton’s Main Street at Thornes Marketplace. This was done Tuesday.

We are fortunate to reside in a community where all the citizens are on equal footing. Therefore, special attention to any particular segment of the population is no longer necessary. Besides, Northampton is well known for the diverse population in residence here thus painting a blaring “label” across Main Street is redundant.
