Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said Wednesday he hoped any conflict he and State Sen. Donald F. Munson may have had is over now that Munson says he supports a downtown Hagerstown location for an education center.
On Tuesday, Bruchey criticized Munson, R-Washington, for making negative comments about the proposed location for the university center.
Munson claims he's been supportive of the governor's decision to put the University System of Maryland education center downtown. But in recent weeks Munson has expressed skepticism the downtown site will be successful.
During Bruchey's State of the City address Tuesday morning, he said to ensure the money for the university project becomes available, "you have to shut Munson up."
Later, during Tuesday's City Council meeting, Bruchey said it seemed like officials from the city, Washington County and most of the county delegation to the Maryland General Assembly "are all playing the fiddle and Senator Munson is playing the drums."
