But some outlying residents say “no thank you”
SoapboxThe Miami Herald , May 10
Thank you to all the neighbors and friends — 80 to 100 of you — who heeded the call to attend the April 9 Homestead Annexation... Workshop. We were told the workshop was a discussion to consider the pros and cons of an issue. Any attempt by the public to speak was quickly quashed. One council member had the clarity of mind and jurisprudence to realize that annexation is not a public-friendly topic; nor is stifling freedom of speech. He was resoundingly applauded, and needs to educate those council members pushing for annexation.
