Public Waterfront for Sale?

The full City Council will hear public comment tonight (and only tonight) regarding the awful mess it's gotten us into with the Maine State Pier business.

Will the working waterfront succumb to five-star hotels, parking garages, sleazy developers, and cronyism? Christ, I hope not. See you tonight, 7 PM, City Hall.
