So what's he up to? He's put forward a proposal to take just that Justice's home and replace it with the Lost Liberty Hotel. Ha. But does he have a case? Well, maybe not, but he does say this:
"This is not a prank" ... "The town of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."The Boston Herald likes the idea.
Board of Selectmen, you say? So I did a little digging and found the email addresses of the five Board of Selectmen. I penned each of them a letter, a copy of which is posted below:

Subject: Lost Liberty Hotel
Dear Member of the Board of Selectmen,
My name is Peter Jaworski, and I'm a resident of Orono, Ontario, Canada.
I wanted to send you an email to encourage you to support the proposal for the Lost Liberty Hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road.
Should the Hotel become a reality, I will visit it each year. At least once. And I will come with friends.
Also, if possible, I will host the Liberty Summer Seminar (http://www.libertyseminar.org) in the Lost Liberty Hotel every other year. The event draws between 50 to 75 attendees, mostly Canadians, and mostly from areas outside of Weare. This is likely to continue.
I'm certain that many people, just like myself, would also make use of the Hotel, would spend time in Weare, which would be great for tourism, and good for tax revenues as well.
