Call the seller’s bluff on Launiupoko land deal

I have been following the Launiupoko land deal and, to say the least, it smells funny at best. Needless to say, I take exception to County Council Member Mike Victorino’s assessment, and I quote, “We just bought (207) acres at Lipoa Point for $20 million. Here’s 186 acres – as significant a purchase as anywhere else – I still think it’s worth $13 million” (The Maui News, Dec. 4).

Is he equating Honolua to this junk parcel? Like I said, it smells. I would call the bluff set forth by the seller and call for an audit to see who really is benefiting.
