Kentucky Sports Radio has just published UK President’s letter dated May 20, in response to Rupp Arena Task Force Chairman’s April 25th letter to him essentially demanding UK’s public commitment to the project. See the letter here:
The letter is detailed, blunt, and is described by KSR as “scathing”. In it Capilouto declines to support the project, citing lack of public support and other more pressing local, state, and UK priorities. Given this letter, recent public polls, and legislative inaction, the proposed arena and convention center project appears to be mortally wounded.
