Re: “Candidate’s Town Center remarks upset officials” (TNT, 6-21).

Dick Muri has stated that his comments about University Place’s Town Center are important to his campaign. He continues to state that UP will go broke because it can’t pay back the millions of dollars it borrowed to develop the Town Center project.

If this is so important to his campaign, why didn’t he tell the truth? He should have talked to Ken Grassi and the City Council for the facts before relying on rumors.

So the town project is moving slowly; it is still moving. A cafe with a child play area opened recently, and there are plans for an apartment building with retail shops in the works.

If this statement is so vital to his campaign, then Muri is in trouble, because intelligent voters are not going to buy into his falsehoods. Most of us in UP know Stan Flemming and Ken Grassi, and know that they care about UP and its growth, about making UP one of the nicest and safest towns around and a place where people want to live.
