MMSA: prove you’re good stewards
Thank you to The Sheet for writing the story “The Fight That Wasn’t” (March 9, page 1).
It is important to note that the community of June Lake is not fighting for something unreasonable here. We are simply stating that we are opposing any special legislation that would allow OUR government to trade OUR land (at a bad deal of unequal value) to a private entity that has proven to be a poor steward of public lands.
An entity that has the ability to spend hundreds of millions of dollars at one of the two parcels of OUR land, while allowing the other parcel of OUR land to rot, while doing so, jeopardizing the viability of an entire community.
If MMSA were to prove that they are worthy stewards of all public lands that they control, or sell the right to operate the public land that they have negleted and shut down at a fair market price, there would be MAJOR support for the land exchange.
