Sale of Saxman Seaport

I have read a lot of bad mouthing from people. regarding the sale of property to the state (the Saxman Seaport). I would like to know if those people have any idea how much the state offered for almost 8 acres of land (prime land at that)? They have nothing to lose. They get to keep their land.

I feel that before you comment on things that you go and find out the real facts first. If they didn't want to give up their land I would not condemn them. The people of Saxman have spoken that they don't want to sell their land. They have stated at many meetings they prefer a lease. But that was not mentioned by any of the people. I think that a person should be there and understand the whole process before stating a view that is not totally accurate.
