In a letter to the Press Herald on Feb. 10 (“People are entitled to form their own opinions on Bayside’s ‘midtown’ project”), Patrick Venne says this about the proposed development in Bayside: “Rather than simply concluding the project is ‘mega’ … consider the facts: It’s shorter than the tallest building in Brunswick.”

I find this statement at least very sneaky and in reality quite dishonest.

What most readers do not realize is that uniquely tucked into the pines of Bowdoin College is Coles Tower, one of the tallest buildings in the entire state of Maine, originally constructed in the late 1960s as the college’s “Senior Center.”

I offer no opinion regarding the Bayside project but think the citizens should be aware of the “facts.”
