The Friends of Cherrydale Woods would like to thank Pierce County Councilmember Dick Muri for his encouragement, guidance, and support of our efforts to preserve Cherrydale Woods from the developer’s bulldozer.
Here’s an indication of how Dick Muri works for us: On the day before the November 2 election, he took several hours out from his campaign for Congress, to attend the County’s Community Development Committee meeting on the Conservation Futures program. He is not a member of that committee, but he wanted to be there to explain to the public why he supported the amendment that revised Cherrydale Woods’ ranking. When he could have been out drumming up last minute support for election to the United States Congress, he was helping us on the Pierce County Council. Any other elected official would have focused on the election to higher office, but Dick Muri was focused on serving his constituents.
On behalf of the Friends of Cherrydale Woods and the children who attend Cherrydale School, we thank you, Dick Muri, for your service to our community. French and Mary Lu Wetmore; Gary and Karen Duggins; For the Friends of Cherrydale Woods.
