|Why Homestead needs a Mayor is beyond me. Rosen has been running the City for years.|
Looks like the Miami Herald has finally tried to uncover some of Wayne Rosen's shenanigans in Hudstead with their front page story: Developer wants poverty-fighting funds to rehab Homestead country club. The Rosen stuff has been going on long enough. The Hurricane Andrew riddled city of Homestead was ready for Wayne Rosen and his longtime (recently deceased) partner Michael Latterner (Rosen is now suing Paige Latterner and family). I wrote about this golf course and also this HUD proposal because in my opinion it is an improper use of HUD money.
Brian Sullivan told the Miami Herald that all applications “would have to benefit low-to moderate-income residents, eliminate slum or blight, or respond to some type of urgent need, such as a hurricane.”With all the needs of the Community, this is not a good use of HUD funds. Really, the jobs angle is just not enough. Not enough jobs and really, do you want to use public funds to have poor people serving rich people? Seems wrong. If Rosen wants to build a luxury golf course tell him to look to the Soffer's THEY PAID WITH THEIR OWN MONEY FOR THE REFURBISHING of the two Turnberry golf courses. Wayne I like your idea. But you are rich, you do not need Hud money, don't be heartless. Open that pocket of yours and pay for it.
Sullivan added that the application would have “to articulate which three of these standards this golf course is going to meet” and that all applications go through thorough review.
I don't see this golf course working: The greens fee and cost to join (so Rosen can make a profit) will be beyond the average Keys Gate resident's budget. Hudsteaders should look at the costs of joining other courses around Miami. Is this a feasible project that will have long lasting jobs?
AS FOR YOU HUDSTEAD: NO MORE HUD MONEY FOR YOU!
