Robin Reiter Faragalli is the interim President of the Beacon Council. The county commission and the Mayor must be happy. Happiest of all should be Lynda Bell who was gunning for Nero. Now the Commissioners can divide up the funds that go to the Beacon Council for their loser Mom and Pop grants in their districts, that curry them favor.
How many of the those Mom and Pop businesses that we give grants to are still in business? We will know that soon enough. More important are they creating jobs?
I don't think Kulture Klothes by Isis, Freedom Wings, or Kemistry Hair Gallery will be doing any hiring soon. Kulture Klothes has been an inactive corporation since 9/22/2000, Freedom Wings, has been inactive since 9/24/2010 and Kemistry Hair Gallery has been an inactive corporation since 9/26/2008 according to Sunbiz. All 3 were recipients of a 2009-2010 Mom and Pop Grant. As I warned a reader, be careful what you wish for.
