Open Forum: Opinions aren’t facts


If I wanted to buy or sell a house, I’d probably contact someone like Mr. Goedker or another qualified representative of the Greater Lakes Association of Realtors (GLAR). They know how to move real estate. That’s their business and they do it well. If I wanted to better protect our public waters and property values for the long-term, I don’t think Mr. Goedker and GLAR would be my first choices to call.
