The Beacon Council is just costing us funds since Mayor Carlos Gimenez cut the Cojones off of the group. When Frank Nero, the head of Beacon Council, publicly came out against gambling, also against Carlos Gimenez's wishes, he was quickly fired thanks to help from then County Commissioner Lynda Bell. The Agency has since folded into a do-nothing entity afraid of the Mayor and the funds put aside for job creation and incentives for businesses to move to Miami were raided for projects around the county. The Beacon Council doesn't create jobs they just exist and by existing cost us a lot of money. Mayoral Candidate Raquel Regalado is on target on this issue.
