During the 2008 economic downturn, they decided instead to preserve it with a "conservation easement contract" with a land trust--and allows them to get tax breaks for preserving the marshland.
David Perdue (R) has sought to paint Nunn as a "Washington insider" because of her and her father's connections, and slammed her for the land deal. Nunn's campaign pointed out that conservation easements are backed by politicians in both parties & that former Gov. Sonny Perdue (R), David's cousin, has easements of his own. A Nunn spokesman said, "Michelle was able to protect beautiful land in Glynn County for future generations through a program supported not just by Gov. Perdue but a broad swath of Georgia leaders including Senators Chambliss and Isakson."
