For 6 days a gaggle of Homestead officials will go to Las Vegas...the trip is to market their downtown area. You might be saying to saying to yourself: WHAT??????
Why would anyone in Vegas care about Homestead? Maybe the speedway, but downtown?
The City Manager is going, CRA Director and I think the entire council. What the hell are they marketing? The Redland Hotel? This is stupid even for Homestead...and that is saying something.
Homestead: You have nothing to market in your downtown. I have been there. It is worth about 15 minutes, if you eat some Mexican food maybe add another hour. If you go to a show at the Seminole theater add 0 minutes. That might be the longest renovation in the history of the county.
I think they should go to Baltimore and try to market Homestead. They could say: "Home of the Nice Cops." "Good Eats in our Jail."
