Look at George Zimmerman in Hopewell. He spent $11 million cash, building his dream farm.
About 500 acres where he grows heirloom tomatoes, and a vineyard. He's rich. But he's not a greedy landowner who put others at risk for personal gain.
GEORGE DOESN'T OWN THE MINERAL RIGHTS TO HIS PROPERTY. THERE WAS NOTHING IN IT FOR HIM.
ONLY THE PREVIOUS OWNER STANDS TO GAIN. GEORGE GOT SOLD OUT. $11,000,000 AND A LOT OF WORK GONE.
George spent $2 million on a 12,000 square foot house. He had 3 perfect, spring fed water wells, as verified by pre-drilling tests. He and his wife have an eight-year-old son and eight-month-old twins.
He's 66 and his dream farm is toast. He rates his chances of selling the property as “slim to none” in light of the proven water contamination.
