Tamir Sapir, a Manhattan real estate developer, is the sole shareholder in Snake
Tamir Sapir, a Manhattan real estate developer, is the sole shareholder in Snake River Financing Ltd., which has agreed to provide the $4.5 million needed to construct a high-stakes bingo parlor proposed for Albany Township by the Passamaquoddy Indian Nation. Greg Wright, attorney for the Passamaquoddies, has asked Steve Wight, chairman of the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission, to remove himself from the case. Wight is the owner of Sunday River Inn and Cross Country Ski Center in Newry and a Newry selectman, and has been accused of bias against the bingo parlor. LURC member Theresa Hoffman, a Penobscot Indian, has indicated she may excuse herself from the case, citing the fact that her tribe runs a high-stakes bingo operation on Indian Island. Details.
