- You champion the rights of Mr.Lesser. You fail to consider the rights of the taxpayers who keep this island and Mr.Lesser alive. From reading your opinion piece, one would believe that private property owners and taxpayers don't exist.
The courts will always uphold the rights of the minor shareholders in a PUD as they uphold the rights of minor stockholders - Chrysler Bros. vs Henry Ford.
Your say it is useless to look back at the history of the ill-advised failure that wasted 3 years of everyone's time and froze real estate sales for those property owners at Islandside. What about their rights? The town was well advised by very competent lawyers. The commissioners and the town lawyer chose to ignore them. They should all resign and let more competent people manage the town's affairs. We can no longer afford tocontrolledoled by failures.
- Wow, the insanity in government just continues to grow. We are being eaten by our own government and they do not get it. Government has grown to where it is about them and not the public who pays their salaries. As a nation, we either have to reign our public officials back in or George Orwell will be right.
